NEW TECHNOLOGY

Exclusive First Look @ NAB NY 2019

Get a first look at this next generation IT/IP-centric live production platform with open architecture.

Live Production: Revolution

This platform is fully resolution and format-independent and based on the latest technology in software and CPU/GPU processing, allowing users to allocate processing power with 100% efficiency and achieve performance levels currently impossible with traditional hardware-based products. It offers uncompressed processing, true uncompressed 4K inputs and full support of baseband and IP signals (such as ST2110 and NDI) at the same time. Fully embracing the latest IP technologies, the platform is also ready for Remote Production and can be integrated in a full IP-based environment.

Thanks to a very intuitive, extremely well designed GUI and fully customizable interface, this platform sets a new standard of usability for customers, allowing them to manage an unlimited number of video layers. And along with the support of virtually any kind of signal in a single server, the platform offers super low 1-frame latency processing, making it an extremely powerful tool in all contexts and applications. It is the perfect solution for a smooth transition to the IP world and offers a new level of flexibility and control.

“This new modular and open architecture platform is a game-changer for many customers involved in high-quality video production and delivery, either live or in the studio, allowing customers to optimize and future-proof their investment whilst maintaining the ultimate in flexibility,” said Michael Bergeron, Panasonic Broadcast Camera Systems Senior Product Manager. “The Live IP Switching application is just the start for this new platform. Its video processing architecture allows users to build and run any kind of application. In the near future, this new platform will be at the heart of video production, being used as a video processor, scaler, mixer or server. There is simply no limit to what can be achieved with this one platform for many applications.”

Next Generation IT/IP-centric Live Production Platform with Open Architecture

  • 12:45 pm - 1:15 pm
  • N727: Marketplace Theater
  • Presented by Michael Bergeron, Panasonic Senior Product Manager for Broadcast Camera Systems

Live event production from broadcast programming to concerts and sporting events has left the cookie cutter system set ups behind, and event producers can offer - and must contend with - multiple independent linear streams as well as of a growing compliment of screen content to display at the event.

HD, 3G, 12G sources and destinations must not only be prepared for, they may need to be handled in the same production environment. Purpose built video processing black-box type components will no longer stack up end to end without unacceptable latencies, and operators may come from different backgrounds and cannot be expected to come with proficiencies in the growing list of proprietary interfaces.

Panasonic has been developing an open architecture system where all processing is GPU based and all the processing layers are performed in one step. Input/outputs are able to be provisioned based on overall bandwidth and user interfaces follow best practices from popular desktop programs. This system is IP based at its core, following SMPTE 2110 protocols, but can also easily be adapted to support SDI (up to 12G).

This presentation will go over the overall architecture and get into some specifics on the first implementation which will feature a 2ME switcher interface complete with a Hardware panel from Panasonic. The implications to all production architecture of this approach will also be discussed.
