Timeline’s IP 4K HDR OB truck rolls into IBC16 September 2017
IBC visitors can check out Timeline Television’s new IP 4K HDR OB truck, featured on SAM’s IBC stand.
The triple expanding OB truck, UHD2, handles uncompressed 4K/UHD, IP and HDR and is equipped with various SAM technologies including two Kahuna IP production switchers and IP multiviewers, with SAM’s IP infrastructure technology providing the backbone.
Also in the truck for IBC, SAM’s LiveTouch 4K/UHD replay and highlights system will be used for demonstrations.
The truck is designed to support 32 Sony 4K cameras. Its two Kahunas enable SDR and HDR to be run simultaneously along with down converted HD outputs.
According to the companies, the set-up allows production teams to work in VSF TR03 (SMPTE ST 2110 draft), enabling Timeline to work with video and audio as separate essence flows within an IP workflow.
Also underscoring its emphasis on IP, at IBC SAM announced its collaboration with Cisco to integrate Cisco’s IP Fabric for Media system into its existing IP networking systems.
Per the agreement, SAM will design-in Cisco systems with professional services as part of its IP offering and resell the Cisco systems to include Cisco Nexus 9000 series switches and Data Centre Network Manager (DCNM) software-defined networking system, as part of its IP strategy including studio, playout, OB trucks/fly-packs and remote production.
