Snell Live TV & TV Everywhere Updates Announced For NAB

Snell is to showcase new innovations across its Live TV and TV Everywhere divisions at this year's NAB show in Las Vegas, including the first application for the Snell On Demand platform and new features for key products.
Visitors can also see how Snell enables customers to make the transition to efficient IP-based production workflows, using a combination of broadcast technologies and IT systems.
Snell's Momentum, a media asset management and workflow automation designed for TV Everywhere, will be on display at the show.
The solution is part of Snell’s ‘Media Factory’ software-based media management and processing solution. Active directory support enables users to drive security policies via centralised IT systems.
Proxy browse capability can be used to manage captions and subtitles and the HTML5 browser-independent interface supports a choice of web browsers.
The Published Web Services API allows interactions among business systems and FIMS compliance extends the choice of controlled systems, including Snell’s Alchemist OD application.
Alchemist OD, the first application for Snell’s On Demand framework, is designed specifically for content owners, post-production facilities and playout service providers.
It safeguards high image quality and offers simple integration. It offers a scalable, motion compensated format and frame rate conversion software available on demand.
A Service Oriented Architecture and floating license model makes for a versatile solution that adapts to changing business requirements. The system stems from Snell’s Media Factory concept, combining Snell’s unique, Emmy award-winning image processing technology with generic IT equipment.
ICE-LE is the new version of Snell’s ICE Channel-in-a-Box, providing more streamlined functionality in a 1RU configuration. The latest version of ICE now provides twice the 2D or 3D graphics capability within a standard 2RU system.
Now shipping with Version 4.0 software, it offers Nielsen audience tracking including C3 capabilities and integrated loudness control for compliance with international regulations. A 'Variplay' feature option speeds up noncritical material to compress time and make space.
In partnership with Quantum, Snell will also be showcasing ICE SAN for large-scale shared content storage, allowing multiple ICE units to instantly access media. Both a high-performance enterprise model and a lower-cost option are available.
A new modular control surface for Snell's industry-leading Kahuna 360 multi-format production switcher range, Kahuna Maverik will make its NAB debut. It provides technical directors with a reliable access control interface for every type of studio and mobile television programming. It allows fast configuration and set-up time for a quick studio turnaround between shows and offers 4K support.
It also mirrors the studio's operation and has a compact footprint. Crystal clear OLED buttons with user-assignable thumbnails, a touch-screen at the M/E level rather than on a separate GUI, and the ability to assign RGB values to buttons provide quick, clean navigation.
At NAB 2014, Snell will also showcase new updates and features for its Sirius 800 router range, Luna router control panels and its Modular IQ range, including a new 4K UHD downconverter and the first product to incorporate Snell’s new Media Biometrics technology.
