End-to-end live video transmission and production solution provider BitFire has announced it is now able to transport live video programming in High Dynamic Range (HDR).
The update allows broadcasters, streaming providers, sports leagues, and production companies to deliver visual content with maximum contrast, said the company.
“HDR is on the rise as more broadcasters embrace high dynamic range in their live productions,” said Ben Grafchik, vice president of business development at BitFire Networks. “At BitFire, we’re proud to provide the ability to deliver HDR through our global IP network.”
The update leverages BitFire’s software-defined platform to increase broadcast capabilities using the company’s hardware already deployed.
The BitFire Media Platform provides point-to-multipoint delivery of broadcast-quality video between BitFire servers on the ground and/or in the cloud, and can also be accessed through the company’s browser-based FireBridge to enable live remote collaboration.
BitFire’s 24/7 Network Operations Centre supports ive production and transmission, remote production control rooms, camera packages, and post production capabilities.
