AJA Video Systems Releases BRIDGE LIVE v1.12

News Image
AJA Video Systems has released BRIDGE LIVE v1.12, a new software update for AJA's turnkey multi-channel live video solution for remote production, contribution, collaboration, streaming, and delivery.

The release features bi-directional NDI® (Network Device Interface) input, output and transcode; HLS output; video preview; and user interface updates for more intuitive configuration.

Whether facilitating remote production, two-way interviews, live event streaming, multi-cam backhaul, field contribution, program return, confidence monitoring, collaborative production, or ABR ladder profiles to hand-off for OTT packaging, BRIDGE LIVE v1.12 delivers powerful new functionality. Bi-directional NDI support makes it easy to encode SDI inputs for NDI output to the network and/or to receive NDI for outputting SDI. The ability to also transcode IP Video Streams to NDI and/or transcode NDI Inputs to IP Video Streams enables a host of new workflow possibilities. For example, BRIDGE LIVE can now sit at the edge of an NDI event or facility network, enabling professionals to transport outbound NDI video as a streamable format, and/or return the stream to NDI for use at a remote NDI production destination.

BRIDGE LIVE v1.12 feature highlights include:
• Bi-directional NDI-SDI conversion:
Receive NDI and decode to SDI
Input and encode SDI to NDI
• Bi-directional NDI-IP Video Streams conversion:
Receive NDI and transcode to IP Video Streams (i.e., H.265, H.264)
Receive IP Video Streams (i.e., H.265, H.264) and transcode to NDI
Integrate remote NDI and non-NDI equipment/facilities via RTP/UDP/SRT
Tap directly into the NDI network and provide a conduit to CDNs or other delivery mechanisms
• HLS Output (HD): Input SDI sources and IP Video Streams into BRIDGE LIVE and encode them for sharing to widely used devices and software, or via remote screening to iOS and iPadOS devices via HLS
• Video Preview: With support for Video Preview thumbnails now available in the BRIDGE LIVE GUI for SDI Inputs, receive visual confirmation for correct SDI input/content encoding, even if unable to “go live” to check the content for security
• UX improvements: Explore more intuitive pipeline configuration and options such as “start detecting input” and “set as input” buttons, and enhanced responsiveness
• A new Factory Reset method: An alternative and rapid method to access factory reset directly from the boot menu

"BRIDGE LIVE v1.12 marks AJA's second major software update for the device since launching the product less than a year ago and addresses key customer feature requests to streamline operations and provide greater workflow flexibility in the field," shared Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems. "This is our first NDI-enabled product, and we couldn’t be more excited to bring the unique capabilities of BRIDGE LIVE to the huge range of NDI users around the world. Bringing bi-directional NDI I/O and HLS output to BRIDGE LIVE offers professionals broader hardware and software integration and a simpler, cost effective alternative to deploying large teams of personnel and resources at remote locations."
