Customer-oriented solutions from Rohde & Schwarz27 March 2014
Rohde & Schwarz DVS is focusing on customer-oriented solutions, promising visitors to its NAB booth the opportunity to learn how to utilise the full spectrum of resolutions from SD, 4K to 8K using the company’s systems. The Pronto4K-HFR presentation player will be introduced, as well as a new, scalable storage solution.
As the latest member of the Pronto product family, Pronto4K-HFR plays out uncompressed RGB 12-bit content at up to 4K/60p meaning it can also handle high frame rate material. By the end of the year, this will be increased further still, to 120p for 10-bit content. The 3D-capable player is equipped with a storage solution comprising SSD drives.
VENICE, the ingest and production server for the broadcast studio environment, will showcase new Avid outgest and studio playout capabilities. In conjunction with Avid, the ingest and production server from Rohde & Schwarz will be offering new functions. Content can be ingested in realtime in the Avid environment and then played out or distributed directly again once edited. VENICE also offers support for multi-camera ingest.
The CLIPSTER mastering station features an extensive DCI delivery tool which includes capabilities such as subtitling, stereoscopic high frame rate, and Dolby AtmosTM. CLIPSTER also supports the two standards AS-02 and IMF at resolutions of up to 4K.
Rohde & Schwarz will also be presenting a scalable storage solution for the processing of large quantities of data with resolutions of up to 8K in production environments.
