Playout control boost12 September 2016
The integration of Rascular’s Helm control technology with Elemental Live is being showcased in Hall 1, providing what the company says is precision manual control of the software-based playout technology. Elemental Live provides real-time video and audio encoding for
linear pay-TV broadcast and live streaming to new media platforms.
IBC also sees the European debut of a new version of Rascular’s Mediant media management tool to provide improved secondary media handling for both broadcast and streaming playout. This includes the development of Mediant-AM (Automation Module), activated by a separate licence purchase.
According to the company, Mediant-AM adds a sophisticated level of automation to the media management process, automatically syncing secondary event media – including branding – on the playout device with the requirements of the automation playlist. In common with Mediant,
it also provides conversion of assets into the correct format.
Mediant can populate the ImageStore range of branding devices and Harmonic’s CiAB solution ChannelPort. It’s compatible with Imagine’s ADC 100 and ADC 1000 automation technologies with more integration to follow.
