BroadcastAsia 2019: Rohde & Schwarz showcases newsroom and studio production workflows and Pixel Power playout solutions

From June 18 to 20 at BroadcastAsia in Singapore, Rohde & Schwarz will highlight newsroom and studio production solutions, mastering and IP workflow. For the first time the subsidiary Pixel Power will join Rohde & Schwarz at booth 4T3-01 on Level 4.

At BroadcastAsia 2019, Rohde & Schwarz will showcase newsroom and studio production workflows in partnership with Aveco and Octopus. “The requirements of the industry are changing rapidly and we are geared to meet and exceed the expectations of our customers,” commented Yew-jin Cheong, Director of Broadcast and Media (Asia Pacific) Rohde & Schwarz. “Be it in the areas of IP technology, newsroom/ studio production workflows, UHD/ HDR capabilities, channel playout and automation, Rohde & Schwarz will be your trusted technology partner, both today and for the future.”

Ingest and playout

R&S VENICE-S media server can be flexibly adapted to any workflow requirements in live and studio playout environments thanks to its software architecture and scalability. Software applications for ingest and production workflows, plus newly developed capabilities for automation driven channel playout enable the R&S VENICE platform to be deployed across the broadcast ecosystem. The server system's flexibility comes from a new R&S VENICE-S microservice core paired with commercial off-the-shelf hardware and a video I/O board designed by Rohde & Schwarz. It uses a standard IT server whose reliability and performance has proven itself a thousand times over in data centers worldwide. R&S VENICE-S has no single point of failure due to the redundancy of all system-relevant components.

Production storage

In order to satisfy the demands of today's media world, storage solutions must fulfill high requirements in terms of scalability and workflow integration, including fast user access to media files. R&S SpycerNode solves these issues and offers an easy-to-use interface, a high performance computing (HPC) file system, market-leading erasure coding mechanisms and many other functions. Users can focus fully on their creative work. To simplify system configuration and maintenance, Rohde & Schwarz has extended the R&S Device Manager for use with the R&S SpycerNode.

Post production

R&S CLIPSTER is the gold standard workstation for mastering and distributing feature films and episodic TV. As the industry benchmark for mastering with a versatile set of complete tools for Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision HDR, R&S CLIPSTER provides a foundation for post production vendors to build services upon. Supporting up to 4K120p, from a wide array of professional media file formats or baseband SDI, R&S CLIPSTER can support various stages of post production.
