Amsterdam, 31 August 2016 – Open Broadcast Systems, an advanced broadcast technology visionary, is launching a suite of products to deliver software-defined live broadcast at IBC.

The products, running as “apps” on standard IT hardware, will enable broadcasters and services providers to easily transition to uncompressed IP by converting video both from legacy formats such as ASI and SDI to next generation formats and vice-versa. It also enables simple monitoring of all types of IP feed in one place, making it possible to move to future technologies today.

Open Broadcast Systems is also launching a 4K uncompressed-over-IP multiviewer, using a 40Gbps network. This demonstrates a technical-first, showing uncompressed-over-IP being processed on off-the-shelf hardware, and will enable broadcasters to monitor existing and next-generation IP feeds at a much lower-cost than before.
