Realtime HEVC encoding of UHD content can be seen in the French Pavilion during IBC.
BBright's SLED-4K encoder has been designed specifically for UHD, is based on a scalable hybrid hardware architecture and is said to have “a flexible software design.”
It supports various license options for 4K/UHD, full HD with high frame rate, such as 60p, 100p or 120p, and multiple channel HEVC encoding.
BBright chief executive, Guillaume Arthuis, said: “Ultra-HD promises to be the next big challenge for the broadcast industry. This flexible and scalable product is designed to help our customers to quickly move to Ultra-HD workflows and satisfy both technical and budget requirements.”
BBright is also showing a test 4K-UHD playout server that can be connected to any 4K-UHD realtime encoder.
Called the UHD-Play it is capable of ingesting various file and container combinations and then natively playing back the best possible Ultra-HD picture quality, in 10-bits – 4:2:2 – 60fps, via quad 3D-SDI outputs.
