Norwia: Simplifying the future of production13 September 2014
Norwia is showcasing its range of cost-effective, flexible and future-proofed solutions aimed at simplifying the production process.
IBC visitors will be able to see demonstrations of Norwia’s flexible miniHUB optical transport solution for remote production, showing why it is gaining increased traction with broadcasters and production companies.
miniHUB has been designed to ensure it meets the three main requirements of broadcasters looking to move to remote production: contribution of pristine video and audio quality; control of cameras and lighting is not affected by the distance between the studio and the OB location; production staff can communicate efficiently so that the programme can be made just as well when the audio engineers, lighting controllers, technical directors and vision directors are kilometres rather than meters from the cameramen and the live action.
Norwia is also showcasing a fully functioning broadcast redundant ring structure at IBC. This flexible optical blade with next generation miniHUB interface is made possible by Norwia’s AutoSFP technology. It is configurable as a multiple fibre solution or a multiplexed backbone structure that provides redundancy in both main and redundant fibre paths ensuring fibre can travel either direction and maintain signal integrity.
The Norwia booth has two identical miniHUBs demonstrating the power of AutoSFP functionality, including seeing miniHUB change functionality automatically. The demonstration includes how users can easily change the solution to obtain over 200 combinations.
