VIDEO TRANSPORT Cobalt Digital has bought ImmediaTV, a Silicon Valley-based company focused on IP-centric video- processing technology for broadcast, live event, streaming and IPTV. Having previously worked together on bundled solutions, the acquisition of Immedia’s products and video-compression expertise will quicken the growth of Cobalt’s IP product line, the company said. ImmediaTV designs and manufactures MPEG-4 AVC video compression, digital video transport and digital video processing equipment for both openGear and stand-alone formats. Bob McAlpine, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Cobalt Digital, said: “ImmediaTV is a respected broadcast-industry brand and a well-established openGear vendor with a large and happy customer base. Sharing our customers and using the same platform creates synergy that will help increase sales, grow revenue, and reduce costs. We’ll also be able to develop compression products more quickly and with superior features and benefits in order to meet demand as the industry transitions to IP-based signal transport.” IP LIVE VIDEO TVU Networks has made available its TVU MLink TE4500 HEVC and 4k encoding product for live video transmission. The MLink TE4500 is a rack- mounted device that transmits video using HEVC video compression but also incorporates TVU265 enhanced HEVC, Smart VBR encoding and Inverse StatMux Plus advanced IP video technology. The MLink TE4500 delivers the same high quality picture available with TVU’s cellular IP-based live video transmitters but with more efficient compression, requiring less data transmission. TVU265, TVU’s enhanced version of H.265, has been designed to more efficiently use bandwidth for cellular video transmission. The MLink TE4500 was on show at IBC where TVU also displayed its cloud-based TVU Alert service and its TVU Command Centre workflow management offering. tvunetworks.com cobaltdigital.com tallytechnologies.com SPECIALISTS IN WIRED & WIRELESS TALLY p PROGRAM & PREVIEW p WIRELESS / UP TO 2KM p WIRED / OVER CAT5/6 ADD PROFESSIONAL TALLY TO YOUR PRODUCTIONS.
