www.quantel.com Making LIVE IP feeds compliant
S uitcase TV is proud to be associated with the massive success of the
BBC Radio and Televisions first truly digital coverage of the largest live
music event this summer Glastonbury. During the three-day show the BBCs
compliance team based back in London had to make six live feeds covering
six stages compliant for their web-based service. They achieved this by
using iPhrame Vision.
The compliance process was previously a very hardware dependent
operation run from OB trucks on site; iPhrame Vision being a software
application means operators can be based anywhere in the country with use
of just a touch screen and PC. Pre-configured touch screen buttons loaded
with graphics and audio commands enable the operators to apply visual
effects or mute audio to any inappropriate content in the input feed within
milli-seconds, causing minimal delay to the web-based feed.
iPhrame Vision was born out of Suitcase TVs technology partnership with
BBC Research and Developments Stagebox project. Stagebox caddy
connects onto the video camera and transmits the video and audio over a
time-synchronised network using standard IP- protocols, making it ideal for
multi-camera live events.
iPhrame vision allows SDI feeds to be used alongside IP based solutions
such as stagebox, enabling flexible working which is ideally suited to multi-
camera live studio or outside broadcast (OB) events says David Atkins,
technical director of Suitcase TV. We were very excited to have the
opportunity to work on such a high profile events as One Big Weekend and
Glastonbury and look forward to supporting the BBC when they use this
same technology again for compliance at Reading Festival later this summer.
