The Solution consists of a Play list Manager (Skedula), Ingest Manager and Play out System( XStream Play). It is an advanced disk based system for on air playback of both short-form content (commercials, promos, etc) and long-form content (programs, films, etc). It supports all industry compression and file formats. Also a unique system architecture means ingest and playout can be direct from a central NAS storage over LAN and controlled by dedicated client PC’s on the same network. Built for 24x365 applications, it is a compact, expandable, compatible, and flexible solution with outstanding performance and functionality.
INGEST MANAGERThe Module helps the user to ingest the contents from different sources like VTR, Live or disk in to the Video server. Various ingest applications are made possible by the wide array of inputs provided - composite, component, firewire, SDI, ASI, LAN. Based on the application requirements a stand alone or PCI based Encoder can be used.
RS-422 VTR control by Sony protocol is provided for automated batch capturing off tape. Playback and shuttling is quite easy with convenient keyboard shortcuts. Unlimited amount of clips from various tapes can be captured in a single session, sorted by tape ID and ascending timecode. Once the capture session is initiated, the only operator assistance needed will be to change tapes when prompted.
Content coming from live sources such as satellite feeds can be automatically captured based on a schedule. Audio VU/peak levels can be monitored and corrected accordingly. Ingested clips can be used for immediate editing or playout, before their capturing process is finished. This is particularly useful for sports events or Time Delay/Instant Replay applications.
