Open Broadcast Systems unveiled a raft of new product functionality at IBC 2019.
The company demonstrated its high-density encoder, which takes in Uncompressed IP video and outputs compressed MPEG-TS. It is the densest encoder setup the company has ever deployed and allows for at least double the density available with traditional SDI.
It also showed the recently launched low latency encoding and decoding software. With an end-to-end latency of just 60 milliseconds (at 1080p60), it is the lowest currently achieved for an encoder / decoder pair using Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) IT hardware. It is also one of the lowest latencies achievable in the industry across any full-frame contribution encoder.
The company has also added SCTE-35 and SCTE-104 support to its C-200 encoders and decoders. This means that customers can now use these products in powerful ad insertion workflows, making it possible to insert local or personalised advertising downstream.
Kieran Kunhya, managing director, Open Broadcast Systems commented: “Media workflows are becoming increasingly complex, making it more challenging than ever to deliver a seamless video experience. We are working to make it simple for our customers to ensure the highest quality video possible whilst being to scale effectively with minimal hardware.”
