S and amp;T delivers connected content for Freeview HD and Freesat

Date: 11/02/2011
S and amp;T delivers connected content for Freeview HD and Freesat IP&TV World Forum 2011, March 22-24, Olympia, London: Strategy & Technology (S&T) technology is helping to deliver on demand video content over broadband to Freeview HD and Freesat set-top boxes and IDTVs as part of the new MHEG Interaction Channel (MHEG-IC).
 
MHEG-IC is part of D-Book 6.2.1 the specification for Freeview HD and published by the UK's Digital TV Group (DTG). It is anticipated that MHEG-IC -based applications will be brought into use ahead of the YouView platform,  in which it is included, offering viewers service such as the BBC iPlayer on set-top boxes, PVRs and integrated digital televisions (IDTVs). Freeview New Zealand has also specified MHEG-IC for their platform and other countries are considering its adoption.
 
During IP&TV World Forum S&T will be showcasing the S&T Player application that offers a configurable and customisable video on demand solution (VoD) for MHEG-IC, supporting navigation to find content and playback control. S&T Player also enables the use of playlists so that, for example, a sequence of commercials and programme segments can be served to the receiver that then 'pulls' each content item in sequence. Logging of playback progress is also supported, enabling the introduction of audience measurement for advertising.
 
The MHEG-IC version of S&T Player runs on receivers conforming to the DTG D-Book 6.2.1 specification, which includes high definition (HD) graphics and AES encryption of streamed media. A version of the S&T Player is also available for the UK Freesat platform as well as for markets using the CI Plus (CI+) standard.
 
S&T has also recently announced a version of its RedKey¢3 receiver engine for the HbbTV specification. RedKey¢3 integrates the NetFront¢ Browser from ACCESS and associated HbbTV (Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV) extensions, as well as S&T's DSM-CC client.
 
RedKey 2 is already a popular choice of manufacturers implementing MHEG functionality in digital TV receivers with more than 14 million units already installed.
 
Colin Prior, Director of International Sales at S&T said: "MHEG remains a very important part of UK TV, because the MHEG-based Red Button interactive services are both valued and well used. HbbTV adoption is led by Germany and France with other countries to follow. S&T's MHEG and HbbTV solutions provide a cost-effective connected TV platform for broadcasters and manufacturers alike".
 
RedKey¢3 offers an integrated HbbTV solution, complete with a DSM-CC client and HbbTV signalling, using a similar API to RedKey 2 to simplify integration.
 
Many leading European broadcasters including Canal+, TF1, ARD, RTL and ProSiebenSat.1 are committed to offering HbbTV powered hybrid applications and services. The HbbTV specification is based on existing standards and web technologies including OIPF (Open IPTV Forum), CEA, DVB and W3C. It has been standardised as ETSI TS 102 796. 
 
S&T will also be displaying the latest version of its popular TSBroadcaster DSM-CC Object/Data Carousel including HbbTV signalling support. TSBroadcaster is already a well-established and highly-respected product, used both in Europe and in North America, with versions already covering DVB (MHEG-5 and MHP), OCAP and ETV platforms.

Cobalt Digital Targets Need for Multiple Video Feeds with openGear 9905 MPx Multi-Channel Processor Posted: 12/10/2021
Cobalt and reg; Digital Targets Need for Multiple Video Feeds with openGear and reg; 9905 MPx Multi-Channel Processor

Cobalt® Digital, an industry-leading designer and manufacturer of award-winning edge devices for live video production and master control, and a founding partner in the openGear® initiative, has answered the need for handling and processing multiple video feeds with its 9905-MPx multi-channel processor. The 9905-MPx is a next-generation advanced scaler/frame openGear synchronizer developed in direct response to customer needs for a single module that supports four independent signal paths. The card was highlighted during a press briefing held virtually on October 6th and hosted by Suzana Brady, Cobalt’s SVP Worldwide Sales & Marketing, who noted that the 9905-MPx was developed in response to customer requests for increased density, unprecedented multi-input support, and enhanced flexibility. The event also featured presentations by Dr. Ciro Noronha, EVP of Engineering, and Ryan Wallenberg, VP of Engineering. The 9905-MPx, an audio/video processor for baseband digital signals, is capable of handling up to four independent 3G signals in a single, dense, cost-effective package that provides all common broadcast processing functions without any quality compromises. The card includes individual up/down/cross conversion scalers that are specifically designed for broadcast video formats, with full ARC control suitable for conversions to/from 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios. The multi-path design offers discrete AES and MADI audio embedding/routing/mixing/de-embedding to any of the four processing paths. Standard 3D LUT features and available color correction accommodate SDR and HDR processing for downstream HDR systems, on a per-channel basis. The card also supports per-channel logo insertion, as well as ancillary data insertion/extraction.
