At BroadcastAsia2018, Imagine Communications will showcase technologies designed to help media companies successfully navigate an industry in transition. To underline its depth of support to the flourishing Asia-Pacific market, Imagine will present its demonstrations in collaboration with two local partner companies: Broadcast Engineering Services Pte. Ltd. and Broadcast Technology Ltd. At BroadcastAsia2018, Imagine will demonstrate a complete Ultra HD playout and master control chain utilizing Versio Platform microservices-based integrated playout software, advanced graphics, content management, and automation tools – showcasing ingest from SDI, as well as from multiple SMPTE ST 2110 IP streams.
The company will demonstrate its award-winning Selenio Network Processor (SNP) – a next-gen, FPGA-based 1RU solution which functions both as an SDI-to-IP gateway and an all-IP-capable signal processing platform. Working in conjunction with the Magellan SDN Orchestrator software control system, the SNP demonstration will illustrate a real-world installation which switches and interworks between HD, Ultra HD, and uncompressed real-time SMPTE 2110 streams. Imagine will also demonstrate its software-based EPIC MV multiviewer, which provides a single canvas for mixed signal types. Scalable to thousands of PIPS and hundreds of displays, EPIC MV offers a high-quality, low-TCO monitoring solution for today’s hybrid environments and a seamless transition path to an IP future. The operationally flexible system will be shown combining HD, Ultra HD, and IP inputs into a single, synchronized display. Versio, SNP, and EPIC MV are all powered by Zenium, Imagine’s pure microservices-based software platform.
