AJA streamlines workflow
AJA has extended its line of H.264 streaming and recording devices with the HELO Plus, designed to help video professionals achieve a higher production value with greater cost efficiency and a smaller gear footprint. Dual streaming outputs allow users to create assets with different parameter settings per output (bit rate, GOP length, frame rate, picture geometry, b-frame cadence, etc.) and feed each into one of two destinations, so that they can easily create assets with different parameter settings from a single input or layered imagery from both inputs with built-in graphics abilities. HELO Plus users can also select either of the encoders to drive USB, SD card or NAS recording, and can include the output of the graphics layout compositions. Additional features include SRT support, improved scheduling options and device operation, and group control for triggered start/stop operations with Ki Pro Ultra 12G.
The OG-FiDO-2T-12G and OG-FiDO-T-12G-ST are openGear-compatible 12G-SDI to fibre conversion solutions. The OG-FiDO-2T-12G is a dual-channel 12G-SDI to fibre transmitter that supports conversion of two independent channels of baseband 12G-SDI to LC fibre for simple transport of signals up to 10km. The OG-FiDO-T-12G-ST supports single-channel 12G-SDI to fibre conversion, enabling the transport of a single 12G-SDI baseband signal over ST fibre for remote or long-distance workflows. Both new models support HDR video, feature industry-wide compatibility with certified openGear products and support Ross DashBoard software for remote control and monitoring.
The FS4 4K/UltraHD and multichannel HD frame synchroniser and up/down/cross converter has received a v3.0 firmware update. Improvements include the ability to configure the HDR components of the SDI output VPID on a channel-by-channel basis – vital for improved VPID management – and new HDR test patterns. FS4 v3.0 also increases the frame buffering depth from six to 20 frames, offers enhanced ancillary data management and features improved overall usability.
In brief, Bridge Live v1.13 introduces new multichannel synchronous transport for SDI backhaul or cloud contribution, enabling separate UltraHD or HD channels to be transmitted and received in sync; and Diskover Media Edition v2.0 includes plugins for the Telestream GLIM remote media player, helping creative professionals quickly preview media files in high resolution with colour accuracy via any web browser, and for the Telestream Vantage media processing platform to simplify media transcoding and generating proxy files and deliverable packages. The update also adds security enhancements to safeguard assets and streamline file searches.
