Two new Redwood video engines are being launched on Aveco’s stand at IBC2017 as the Prague-based automation systems company celebrates 25 years in business.
The Redwood Blue uses Harmonic Spectrum technology to perform ingest, graphics insertion, clip playout and integrated channel origination. Other features include live-to-disk recording, master control switching with DVEs, subtitling and independent branding of simultaneous channels.
The Redwood White also performs clip playout, multi-layer graphics insertion and integrated channel origination but runs on COTS hardware.
Both video engines work with Aveco’s various Astra automation products including Studio, MCR and MAM with the Blue also integrating with Take 2 and Ingest.
Pavel Potužák, chief executive, Aveco, said: “There is a plethora of new technology coming in but none of it will solve all of the pain of the media world. Instead, we focus on integration and allowing technology to work together. Harmony is our job. With the Redwood family, broadcasters can choose third-party products and we can help them to create a station of any size and any complexity.”
Aveco was established in 1992 by a group of engineers previously with the Czech TV and Broadcast Research Institute.
