News Image
Rohde & Schwarz is to display new versions of its award winning R&S PRISMON multiviewer, R&S VENICE platform, R&S CLIPSTER and more at BroadcastAsia 2018.

"Whether it's SDI workflows over IP or strategies to exploit the WOW factor of UHD HDR content, we will use BroadcastAsia as a showcase of the added value that Rohde & Schwarz brings to its customers in this dynamic fast-growing broadcast market," commented Yew-jin Cheong, Director of Rohde & Schwarz Asia Pacific Regional Headquarters.

Post production
At BroadcastAsia, Rohde & Schwarz is to showcase version 6.6 of R&S CLIPSTER, demonstrating a continuous stream of new software developments and hardware configurations which continue to offer efficiency enhancements to R&S CLIPSTER owners now and long into the future.

R&S CLIPSTER is a workstation for mastering and distributing feature films and episodic TV. R&S CLIPSTER provides a foundation for post production vendors to build services upon. Supporting up to 4K120p, from a wide array of professional media file formats or baseband SDI, R&S CLIPSTER can support various stages of post production with its built-in tools. R&S CLIPSTER can perform conforming, VTR emulation, non-linear editing, real-time video processing, advanced colour format transformations, and even guide operators towards a reliable delivery with output wizards to a myriad of professional formats. Users can create Digital Cinema Packages, Interoperable Mastering Format Packages (IMF), AS11, and AS02 packages with quality and reliability with R&S CLIPSTER. In addition to the creation of files, R&S CLIPSTER also provides rock solid video playback for QC, review and approval, or playout to tape via SDI, display-port, and HDMI with 16 channels of embedded SDI audio or 16 channels of AES/EBU.

Storage
At BroadcastAsia, Rohde & Schwarz will highlight its R&S SpycerBox multi-user shared storage system. Using the IBM Spectrum Scale file system solution with Rohde & Schwarz storage solutions ensures more efficient storage capacity utilisation. Broadcasters, post production houses, corporate organisations and scientific institutes can now implement intelligent solutions for storing their media files based on their needs. The new file system software for R&S SpycerBox Cell and R&S SpycerBox Ultra TL simplifies the storage workflow and makes it more cost-effective.

To meet these requirements, IBM Spectrum Scale is now available for the R&S SpycerBox product family. This file system enables users to more efficiently utilise different storage tiers based on their needs. Combining high-performance R&S SpycerBox Cell online storage and powerful R&S SpycerBox Ultra TL nearline storage with IBM Spectrum Scale provides the basis for a centralised, tiered storage solution.

Ingest and Playout
Rohde & Schwarz has significantly expanded and optimised its R&S VENICE platform for live production, studio production and channel playout applications. R&S VENICE offers superior stability and an extensive range of features. Its flexibility makes it a future-proof investment. Thanks to the use of open standards, the media server is interoperable with systems from other manufacturers and can easily be integrated into existing infrastructures. R&S VENICE uses proprietary virtual storage access (VSA) technology to ensure reliable transmission even in critical applications. The latest evolution of the platform supports the SMPTE 2110 video over IP standard, NMOS and SDI.

The R&S VENICE platform facilitates the smoothest possible transition from SDI to IP technology. Its applications range from a standalone server to multichannel installations. It is ideal for the studio, live production and multichannel playout applications. The new R&S VENICE uses standard IT server technology and features an ultra-robust, next generation modular software design based on a new software structure.

Encoding and multiplexing
Another Rohde & Schwarz focus at BroadcastAsia will be its R&S AVHE100 system solution for encoding and multiplexing. A compact, yet flexible and scalable transcoding, encoding and multiplexing solution, it offers best in class video quality for premium content distribution, including for today's most advanced video coding standard HEVC for broadcast applications. It also fully supports high dynamic range (HDR) video transmission.

The platform provides COTS-based encoding and multiplexing. Its IP-based system workflow provides advanced redundancy options. At BroadcastAsia, Rohde & Schwarz will demonstrate how the video head-end solution integrates seamlessly with the company's R&S PRISMON monitoring solution to ensure efficient monitoring of all streams received and generated, thereby minimising customer stress in multi-signal environments that are commonly found in today’s broadcast solutions.

Monitoring and Multiviewer
Another focus for Rohde & Schwarz at BroadcastAsia is advanced content monitoring for broadcast and streaming media services featuring its award winning R&S PRISMON multiviewer.

Rohde & Schwarz will demonstrate how R&S PRISMON is applicable to the broadest range of scenarios including playout, production, contribution, distribution and cloud environments. Reporting is another key focus with combined data rates, stream types and resolution reporting, thereby reducing management complexity in modern media operations.

Contribution
Also at BroadcastAsia, Rohde & Schwarz will showcase R&S RelayCaster for live contribution over public internet services. With R&S RelayCaster, reliability of contributing and distributing live content via unmanaged networks is significantly improved, as packet loss issues are efficiently resolved. R&S RelayCaster enables the replacement of expensive satellite links or contracts with CDN service providers. In contrast to these services, RelayCaster is not limited to certain regions or data centres. RelayCaster enables distribution of content across any distance, to any place that is reachable by Internet infrastructure. With optional encryption, data streams will be protected between all senders and receivers (AES).

BroadcastAsia 2018 will take place in Singapore, 26-28 June.
