As the migration from analogue to digital television broadcasting gathers momentum, many stations are experiencing the need to handle an increasing variety of signal formats. Audio and standard definition video commonly occur in both analogue and digital formats, along with high definition video in its 1.485Gb/s uncompressed state. While a ‘clean sheet’ approach with all new digital equipment might sound attractive, it is not a feasible solution in many cases due to the existing capital investment in analogue equipment together with the need to simulcast the traditional analogue channels. In making the changes needed to support the new technology alongside the old, however, broadcasters are understandably reluctant to make capital acquisitions which are not perceived to offer full value in the ultimate all-digital future. In this mixed signal environment, a routing switcher which delivered the appropriate signal format to each destination, irrespective of its source, would be a major advantage, especially if source and destination interfaces could be upgraded in economical units as requirements changed over time.
Pro-Bel pioneered the use of ‘in router’ conversion for audio in its Freeway range of routers, introduced in sizes up to 64 x 64 in 1997. Such was the industry’s approval of the ability to route analogue audio sources to digital destinations and vice versa that, in designing Sirius, a new router family for sizes up to 256 x 256 on 16RU, Pro-Bel took up the challenge to provide this feature, not only for audio, but for standard definition video too. Furthermore, Sirius can also switch high definition video at 1.485Gb/s as well as nonvideo serial streams up to 360Mb/s or higher.
 
Universal Crosspoints
The key to Sirius' flexibility in handling multiple signal types is its universal digital crosspoint switch. All signals are converted into digits before switching and the crosspoint array is capable of routing any media signal, subject to a maximum bit-rate limit. Suitable crosspoints have been developed in integrated form for the telecommunications industry and, due to the enormous quantities consumed in that application, the broadcast industry is able to take advantage of these sophisticated products at an acceptable price. That being said, bandwidth costs money and so Sirius offers two alternative digital crosspoints. The first is capable of switching signals up to 360Mb/s which includes all of the digital video bit-rates specified by SMPTE 259M as well as AES3 digital audio and converted analogue composite video and converted analogue stereo audio. The second crosspoint type has extended bandwidth to include high definition serial digital video at 1.485Gb/s in addition to all of the previously listed formats. To achieve its full capacity, Sirius uses up to four crosspoint modules, each capable of switching any of the inputs to a group of outputs. It is not essential to fit all four modules, a small system can start with just one. It is also possible to mix the high definition and standard definition cards, accepting, of course, that HDTV outputs can only be provided from the high bandwidth crosspoint.

What is next after University
Ruta Kairyte

I currently find myself in between two landmark moments. A few weeks ago I was completely immersed in producing live television content, and in a few weeks time I will become an official BSc (Hons) Television & Broadcasting graduate from the University of Portsmouth. When I look back at who I was in my first year of university, I remember a shy girl from the other side of Europe, unsure at whether a career in television was the right path to take. Now, after three years of university, I can definitely say that I made the best choice of my life by choosing this degree. I’m leaving university confident and motivated, knowing that I made the right choice in study, and I really want that career in the television industry.

A Sound in Motion QA
Antonio Morais “A Sound in Motion started as a camera test for the new Sony VENICE CineAlta 6K Digital Cinema Camera and evolved into a much bigger project. The film, presented by Golpe Filmes and released this summer, was directed/edited by Ricardo Teixeira. It is a fictional story based on the way deaf people adapt themselves to daily life situations. The intent of the film is to be a positive influence in the way people think about the ‘differences in human beings’ and about issues related to social inclusion, but without turning it into something moralistic or that seems fundamentalist. Through sounds not speech, words or verbal expression we want to relay a positive message and display a clear gaze upon that difference.”

Will we soon be paying our respects to PayTV
Malcolm Harland Recent reports show pay TV in the US peaked in 2012 and will keep dropping over the next five years. Digital TV Research’s North America Pay TV Forecasts state the US will see a 20% drop between 2012 and 2023. Should the UK be readying for a similar change in consumer viewing, or is something different happening here?

Investing in the Future of Broadcast Media
Clive Northen At the time of writing, the summer World Cup is providing its usual challenge to camera crews trying to televise the bright sunlight of the stadium without losing detail in shaded areas such as the covered terraces. It is a perfect demonstration of the need for high dynamic range. Several broadcasters are experimentally covering this year's tournament in 4K HDR, including the BBC which is streaming dozens of matches via its iPlayer service. HDR is also accompanied by a wider colour space, meaning millions more colours can be displayed than previously. Yet another advance is the adoption of 50p delivery rather than traditional 50i.

How machine learning might affect media
Bruce Devlin - new I have a curious relationship with technology. I’ve been doing it all my life and I see topics come and go over the years. This is the 3rd time around that I’ve seen Artificial Intelligence become trendy and this time, I think it will stick. There are 4 things that are different this time around and they are (in alphabetical order) Amazon, IBM, Google, Microsoft. All of those companies have had AI research programs running for years, but the big change now is that there is enough ubiquitous compute resource in the form of the cloud to make it commercially viable to build products around the platforms.

I am writing this in the middle of a record-breaking heatwave in southern England. Yet it is time to be thinking about the mists and mellow fruitfulness of autumn, or at least the predictably damp and chilly Amsterdam when IBC hits town.

What will be the hot talking points of IBC this year? I am not in a position to talk about what the big vendors will be showing: I have so far received just the one preview press release (take a bow, Calrec).
