Aperi and Barco Silex have partnered to provide native IP live remote production in 4K. Aperi, a provider of software-based real-time IP media processing to live production and networking, and Barco Silex, a provider of image and video compression technology in the AV industry, successfully demonstrated native IP live remote production for a UEFA Euro 2016 quarter-final match this summer.
Barco Silex provided the VC-2 HQ codec IP core, critical to the 4K remote production from the IBC Centre in Paris Porte de Versailles to the match in Bordeaux, a distance of more than 600km. Aperi’s native-IP platform performed all functions in real-time software with low latency.
The project went from concept to implementation – including integration and testing – in six weeks, illustrating the platform’s ability to launch and execute complex workflows quickly.
“Aperi has succeeded in developing an open, versatile and robust software ecosystem on its A1105 platform that allows for fast, high-quality new function integration and market deployment,” said Thierry Watteyne, CEO at Barco Silex.
“This represents a significant development with far-reaching implications for our industry.”
