The Rapids Rise Again as Antix Digital Acquires Live Streaming and Compression Portfolio from Imagine Communications Posted: 01/02/2021
The Rapids Rise Again as Antix Digital Acquires Live Streaming and Compression Portfolio from Imagine Communications

The technology behind one of the most respected brands that helped ignite today’s streaming media landscape is back as an independent, sharply-focused company again, as newly-formed Antix Digital has acquired the live streaming and compression solutions portfolio from Imagine Communications. Led by Tony Huang, the former head of product management for the same product family at Digital Rapids, Antix will accelerate future development of the solutions while taking over service and support for existing customers and systems.

The transaction encompasses software-based compression, processing and streaming solutions that enable customers to efficiently and profitably engage audiences across delivery platforms ranging from mobile and OTT services to linear broadcast and cable channels. The foundation of the storied product line was developed by pioneering streaming solutions developer Digital Rapids, which Imagine Communications acquired in 2014. Imagine continued to evolve the portfolio with enhanced features and new products, but with streaming media delivery now entrenched in today’s society far beyond commercial media and entertainment applications, Antix plans to bring the product line to broader markets.

The transaction also marks the return of the portfolio’s original “StreamZ” product branding. Imagine will continue to sell the Antix-acquired products to their customers as a non-exclusive Antix reseller.

Texas A and M Goes IP with Imagine Communications for Integrated Sports Production Posted: 28/04/2020
Texas A and amp;M Goes IP with Imagine Communications for Integrated Sports Production

12th Man Productions, the sports broadcast and post facility for Texas A&M University, has moved to IP connectivity to provide a common production platform for all its sports venues. A cornerstone of the new installation is the Selenio™ Network Processor (SNP) from Imagine Communications.

The A&M campus in College Station, Texas, incorporates seven sports venues, spread across the site, which host as many as 110 events a year. As well as offering broadcast outputs from any event at any location, 12th Man Productions also provides in-stadium big screen entertainment and information. The football stadium, Kyle Field, was rebuilt in 2014, and as part of that project, a central studio was planned.

Today, fiber circuits connect every field back to the Kyle Field stadium, allowing resources to be allocated to any venue dynamically. Four control rooms allow two venues to broadcast live, while also producing big screen shows at two more venues. This calls for a large number of feeds in each direction, supporting monitors, multiple digital signage networks and big screen replays, as well as feeds for home and visiting teams. There is also a need to provide for official replay facilities in many sports. All signals are handled as uncompressed HD, minimizing latency by eliminating the delays of compression math, and allowing for live remote production even when venues are 10 kilometers from the control room.
