Avid expands IP content sources for live TV workflows

Interoperability with Sony and TVU Networks IP-connected devices means that content contribution from any SRT or RTMP enabled device into Avid production environments is now possible

Avid has announced that Sony and TVU Networks IP-connected devices are now interoperable with MediaCentral | Stream, an upgrade that expands the pool of journalists, producers and other production resources who can contribute live streams from anywhere for news and remote live production workflows.

“News and other live TV production teams can escalate volume and speed with reliable, secure IP content ingest from any device, anywhere, at any time through  MediaCentral l Stream,” said Raul Alba, director of solutions marketing, Media and Cloud at Avid. “Avid’s customers continue to rely on Sony and TVU in the field and it’s crucial to boost productions with our seamless interoperability. We’re taking an open approach based on common protocols with a strategy to add more in the future, so customers can bring more content contributors into their live productions.”

MediaCentral | Stream is a software-only solution that immediately opens the MediaCentral platform to contributions over IP from sources anywhere using any device.

With MediaCentral | Stream, production teams can easily ingest multiple incoming IP streams in on-premises and cloud-based scenarios without changes or interruptions to their existing workflows, Avid said.
