IMF delivery Comprimato, the JPEG2000 software codec, is now available as a component option for Vantage systems operating on Lightspeed server hardware. Comprimato speeds up the decoding and encoding of JPEG2000 based video, using the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) power of Telestream’s Lightspeed servers. The combination is considered suitable for IMF deliveries to Netflix. “JPEG2000 is fast becoming the format of choice for media distribution, archive and master formats,” said Paul Turner, vice president of enterprise systems at Telestream. “The combination of Vantage, Lightspeed and Comprimato JPEG2000 software codec technology offers significant improvements in throughput, and systems can easily be scaled to handle high volumes of content for fast turnaround.” Playout Systems integrator dB Broadcast has purchased SAM ICE Channel- in-a-Box systems with Morpheus automation to handle ingest and playout for a new production and transmission facility it has constructed for the Services Sound and Vision Corporation (SSVC). SSVC provides welfare entertainment and information to British service personnel and their families worldwide under the BFBS (British Forces Broadcasting Service) banner. The playout operation is based on four ICE and two ICE LE systems, providing ingest and redundant playout for BFBS’s 15 TV channels. Morpheus automation enables full integration with SSVC’s Provys traffic system and IPV MAM. KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 112 APRIL 2016 | 29
