Cambridge Imaging System To Launch Digital TV System At IBC

Cambridge Imaging Systems, the digital archive management specialist, will launch T-Gate, a new, efficient way to manage enterprise digital TV, at IBC.
T-Gate is a new solid state DVB-T to IP gateway. It takes an input signal and converts it to several multicast UDP streams. For digital terrestrial and satellite TV the unit can receive and filter an entire DVB multiplex.
Using a single T-Gate blade, a number of digital terrestrial TV or radio services can be transferred to standard Ethernet networks using TCP/IP.
Tony Blake of Cambridge Imaging Systems said: "T-Gate provides many advantages over earlier systems. It is a single card solution which can handle up to 11 unicast or multicast UDP streams and can stream packets that contain any sort of data. It requires very little configuration by the user and can be combined with our off-the shelf scheduling and stream capture software.
"Users can configure the device to filter TV and radio channels from the multiplex and send the filtered channels to separate network streams. Up to eight filters can be set up but one is used internally.
"T-Gate is designed to fit onto a slightly extended Eurocard size PCB. Power and RF are supplied to the rear of the board, with all remaining I/O connectors and LEDs on the front edge.
"For users who require a more efficient DVB-S to IP gateway, Cambridge Imaging Systems are launching T-Gate's 'twin' named S-Gate."
The company is exhibiting at IBC in partnership with Global Distribution, supplier of leading data storage components and Spectra Logic, suppliers of tape libraries and other storage solutions.
Cambridge Imaging Systems will demonstrate the ways in which its innovative off-air recording facility interfaces with Spectra Logic's versatile tape libraries.
The Box of Broadcast (BoB) system developed by the company holds entire television programmes in digital file form on hard disk in a rolling archive and allows a range of functions such as transcoding to lower bit rates and clip selection by the user of the broadcast programs.
The system offers high performance enterprise level distribution and has already proved popular with universities and libraries.
It is currently in use at the University of Bournemouth and is being installed at the National Screen and Sound Archive of Wales.
