Pebble-1-PREVIEW DMC facility shot

IBC2017 attendees will be able to see a live deployment and hosting of multiple channels in the public or private cloud, using Orca, Pebble's virtualised playout solution running under the Marina automation control system. Pebble said the ability to deploy new channels in a matter of minutes at low cost makes its public cloud solution particularly suited to pop-up, event-based channels, comprehensive disaster recovery applications, and any instance where deployment agility is required.

Of particular note at IBC is an Orca deployment at DMC, the European media gateway with an Amsterdam HQ. DMC recently announced the launch of a full-IP virtualised playout platform, based on Orca. DMC's fully virtualised software-defined 'private broadcast cloud' enables its customers to benefit from the agility and flexibility of an all-IP world, said Pebble. DMC and its technology partners have been shortlisted for an IBC Innovation Award in the Content Distribution category.

The platform, which delivers 30 channels today, will be used by more than 80 channels in Europe from September 1, 2017, following the full migration of remaining channels from DMC's former facility. The all-IP architecture enables DMC to commission and deliver new channels to market faster than ever before, said Pebble.
