Orca, an entirely virtualised, IP-enabled playout and channel delivery technology, has been launched by Pebble Beach Systems. Running in a VM on a virtualised platform, it optimises a software-only implementation of the company’s Dolphin platform to run in a private cloud with IP inputs and outputs.
Pebble claimed Orca provides equivalent functionality, in a pure software environment,
to what was previously handled by discrete video server, graphics and subtitling systems.
As with Dolphin, Orca software-defined channels can be configured to meet the exact requirements of each service.
An advanced orchestration layer also allows ultra-fast deployment against pre-configured templates, so that channels can be launched and integrated into a running Marina system literally at the click of a button
