NAB Show, Las Vegas, Booth N1949 — Rohde & Schwarz, a global leader in broadcast distribution and trusted partner in media solutions, is returning to NAB2023 (booth N1949, Las Vegas Convention Center, 16 – 19 April) with significant advances across its product range. The continuing developments show its commitment to meeting industry expectations for advanced functionality, high availability and industry-leading reliability and support, highlighting how content flows from ingest through the content chain to delivery and transmission.

Demonstrations will be given over to media storage, monitoring and playout. Important additional functionality will be introduced across the whole media portfolio at NAB. To be seen for the first time at NAB is R&S®SpycerNode2, a radical re-architecting of the popular storage appliance, now offering more agility and connectivity including media caching, and offering yet more power at the center of modern workflows.

R&S®Clipster 6 Mark 2 is the industry standard for creating deliverables, and now sees a 100% speed boost, making it much faster to create all the versions required for today’s media supply chain. And R&S®Venice, the ingest to playout content store, also has powerful new functionality, including simplifying the ingest of threatened VT libraries.

From storage to delivery, and Pixel Power Gallium automation management and StreamMaster video processing will combine to show channel playout, both on the booth and in the AWS cloud. The playout center will be monitored using Rohde & Schwarz’s uniquely powerful R&S®Prismon networked multiviewer, featuring SDM (scalable distributed multiviewing) which minimizes processor demands and network capacity by creating each PiP once for use in any matrix.

One channel from Gallium and StreamMaster will be transmitted live via 5G Broadcast, showing how video can be streamed to mobile devices without consuming cellular bandwidth. The channel will be broadcast using the latest version of the TLU9 transmitter and the main core stone R&S BSCC2.0. Alongside it will be the THU9evo: its software-defined architecture allows rich services to be added, now including ATSC 3.0 as well as 5G Broadcast.

“NAB Is about conversations,” said Erik Balladares, Vice President Broadcast & Media Division at Rohde & Schwarz. “We value the opportunity to talk to the broadcasters and media enterprises at NAB, to show how we have listened and developed the functionality they need to deliver high quality content, efficiently, securely and with a minimal environmental impact.”
