Rohde & Schwarz DVS has launched its latest 4K-capable unit, the Pronto4K-HFR presentation player.
As the latest member of the Pronto product family, it has been developed for high-quality video projections and plays out uncompressed RGB 12-bit content at up to 4K/60p, meaning it can also handle HFR material. By the end of the year, this will be increased further still – to 120p for 10-bit content. The 3D-capable player is equipped with a high-performance storage solution comprising SSD drives and, thanks to its multi-device feature, seamless multi-screen presentations can be realised which is highly advantageous particularly at trade fairs, concerts, major events, and theme parks.
The company’s Venice ingest and production server for the broadcast studio environment has also been outfitted with Avid outgest and studio playout capabilities. Featuring seamless Avid ISIS/Interplay PAM integration from ingest to outgest, complete Avid studio workflows can be realised more efficiently and quickly, while content can be ingested in real time in the Avid environment and then played out or distributed directly again once edited. Another special feature offered by Venice is support for multi-camera ingest, which makes true dual-destination recording possible, which increases reliability especially in live situations. Client mirroring is also another part of the new redundancy concept in the product, which offers increased system stability under live conditions.
