An automated scheduling feature has been added to the UHD-24/7 baseband video playout server.
Designed for IPTV head-ends and for satellite, terrestrial and cable networks broadcast operators, BBright’s UHD-24/7 features quad 3G-SDI outputs with support for both Levels A and B in quad full HD and 2-Sample Interleave pixel modes.
On show here at IBC, the server supports various Ultra High Definition (UHD) and 4K files including XAVC, H.265 and H.264 at file ingest and can up-scale full HD progressive files in real-time for UHD playout.
The new playout event scheduler allows for a complete linear channel to be lined-up automatically on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, including the import of a Broadcast Exchange Format (BXF) traffic file. Dolby AC-4 pass-through and HDR schemes, including both PQ10 and Hybrid Log- gamma (HLG), are supported.
Laurent Appercel, marketing and sales director for BBright, said: “BBright is now shifting gear to position itself as a recognised vendor of software-based appliances to be used daily in production infrastructures such as playout head-ends. Several innovative features associated to traditional playout functionalities will allow users to quickly deploy UHD linear channels at a reasonable capex cost.”
Also at IBC BBright is showing the HEVC-Master, which is an offline encoder/transcoder for generating HEVC playout files, the UHD-TS playout streamer for UHD and HEVC and the UHD-Play 4K quad 3G-SDI reference source.
