Video Clarity Launches ClearView Player IP

News Image
Video Clarity has unveiled ClearView Player IP; a high-capacity server with playlist functions for automatically playing and recording uncompressed video using new IP-related video transport standards. The solution represents a new category of playback servers specifically designed for use in an IP infrastructure.

ClearView Player IP is designed for product manufacturers that need to play back one or two channels of video programming into a SMPTE 2022-6/7-compliant network, with a plan to support SMPTE 2110 (TR-03 and TR-04) as the standard develops. Manufacturers rely on the system to subjectively view the video for quality or feed the output to a processing engine for pre-channel or pre-programme deployment quality testing. ClearView Player IP systems can also be deployed for broadcast- or venue-based playback when an uncompressed video source is required in an all-IP environment.

ClearView Player IP works within the new uncompressed video networking standards to record one and play up to two programs of uncompressed video and audio to and from a large storage array. Users can play back video and audio with start commands from the unit's graphical user interface, and can play up to two sequences of video locked to one command, loop, or stop. They can also automate program playback and create a playlist of back-to-back video/audio sequences.

The ability to continuously play high quality uncompressed video and audio over IP makes it possible to dependably test receiver devices and video/audio processors (encoders, statistical mulitplexers) as applied to a video network.

ClearView Player IP is available in three models; 1-RU, small portable, and 3-RU. All can record one or play two HD programs as uncompressed IP up to 1080p/60Hz. The 1-RU and portable versions come standard with an IP interface, while an SDI-only configuration is optional. The third model is a hybrid 3-RU server system that can record or play HD uncompressed on IP, but can also record or play 4K formats on HD-SDI and play back with HDMI outputs.

Blake Homan, president and founder of Video Clarity, said: "We've long been developing our uncompressed video recorder/player line in the SDI domain, but now that new IP network standards are making their way into professional production and transmission applications, product manufacturers and programmers need reliable source-video systems in their test labs as they perfect their IP-related products. Now those who are creating the next generation of broadcast equipment have a purpose-built product that plays video 24/7 in the IP domain, making it possible for them to test their products and apply uncompressed video to program playback applications. Any facility that uses uncompressed video player/recorders can benefit from ClearView Player IP."
