Rohde & Schwarz To Introduce New Products At IBC 2019

News Image
Rohde & Schwarz will make a number of strategic new product introductions that will impact on many sectors of the broadcast industry from 5G Broadcast core solutions to studio production, content mastering, storage and distribution over unmanaged networks on its booth (7.B21) at IBC.

One of the most ambitious 5G Broadcast trials worldwide is currently underway in Bavaria, Germany. Rohde & Schwarz is a moving force within the 5G TODAY project and it will update visitors on the trial’s latest findings. Feeding out of the trial, the company will showcase a revolutionary new 5G Broadcast core solution which enables Rohde & Schwarz terrestrial transmitters to deliver LTE/5G Broadcast content. This landmark new product introduction makes Rohde & Schwarz the first technology vendor worldwide to offer a complete 5G Broadcast solution.

Also, Rohde & Schwarz will introduce a new DAB+ radio transmitter. The new medium power transmitter R&S TMV9evo accompanies the R&S THV9evo high power transmitter. The DAB+ transmitters of Rohde & Schwarz help networks operators to run their networks smoothly and reliably while reducing operating costs even further, thanks to significant energy savings and build-in performance analysis capabilities.

Rohde & Schwarz will show its R&S PKU100 family of satellite solid-state Ku-band uplink amplifiers with the addition of its new 750 W outdoor variant. This model is the first one offering the highest output power with the lowest dimensions on the market. At IBC the company will demonstrate the live operation of the unit wrapped around with the latest T&M equipment to show full performance.

The family is the first on the market to combine the best of two worlds: taking solid-state amplifiers to the next level by incorporating adaptive predistortion, and having the advantages of tube amplifiers such as compactness, light weight and high efficiency.
At IBC, Rohde & Schwarz will extend its fully cloud based monitoring-as-a-service solution R&S PRISMON.cloud across further countries in the EU. The OTT monitoring solution addresses broadcasters and content providers. A flexible and scalable pricing model allows users to significantly reduce their investments (CAPEX). Based on actual requirements PRISMON.cloud now provides monitoring of SMPTE 2110 on-premise streams in the dashboard, incident notification via email and an REST API for integration of status data in network management systems.

The R&S PRISMON monitoring and IP-multiviewer family will benefit from increased capacities for SDI/ASI-I/Os, enhanced configuration for PTP and support for extended colour spaces with SMPTE ST 2110-based input signals. A number of additional new features further strengthen R&S PRISMON as a leading multiviewer solution in modern, IP-based studio and production environments.

Following its launch at IBC 2018, Rohde & Schwarz will significantly enhance its R&S SpycerNode media storage system with a compact 2U height unit version along with several new JBOD capacity extension units. The new R&S SpycerPAM a production asset management system, allows workgroup editing and seamless integration of various editing and mastering platforms such as Adobe Premier, Avid Media Composer, Apple Final Cut Pro and R&S CLIPSTER.

The latest version of R&S CLIPSTER as the DCI/IMF mastering solution includes a Dolby Vision iCMU (integrated content mapping unit), which facilitates media conversion from HDR (with high peak luminance) to HDR (with low peak luminance) or SDR on live output via SDI or HDMI as well as for file transcoding.
Further R&S CLIPSTER enhancements see Dolby Atmos Home workflows support, including IMF-compliant wrapping of Dolby Atmos Home.

The continuing development of the R&S VENICE studio production solution led to HDR optimized ProRes4444XQ support in Rec 2020, where all information of color space and HDR transfer functions will be written in the file. R&S VENICE will now support NMOS IS04 / IS05 and configuration via web service, which allows completely web services based control of R&S VENICE (incl. FIMS and MOS) from IBC on.

With R&S RelayCaster, reliability of contributing and distributing live content via unmanaged IP networks is significantly improved, as packet loss issues are efficiently resolved. At IBC, Rohde & Schwarz will feature major updates for all R&S RelayCaster products by software update: a new setup wizard significantly reduces installation and setup times. Another major new feature provides link redundancy by the use of two separate internet connections.
