Suitcase TV, a specialist in media asset management, is planning to launch a range of products to expand its established iphrame suite at IBC 2015.
Iphrame Suite is a range of software based solutions enabling SDI and IP-based operations which have been designed using a new approach with the belief the move to IP needs to offer broadcast operations something more than simply replacing SDI in traditional architectures.
The new launches will include Iphrame Vision, a real-time production system handling video, audio and graphics that effectively dispenses with much of the equipment traditionally required for live broadcasts. This is made possible because it can run on any standard IT hardware from an entry-level PC right up to dedicated rack-mounted hardware or cloud-deployed VM’s.
Ed Calverley, VP products at Suitcase TV, said: “By reducing the amount of proprietary broadcast equipment used, broadcasters can also save on the time it takes to set such systems up. As a result, the only essential on-site staff are the camera operators and very few others. For broadcasters seeking ways to provide more high quality content while reducing their costs, it is clear that this solution can help save on the expense of transporting staff and equipment.”

Suitcase TV will also be launching smaller packaged solutions to assist broadcasters who are looking to work in the IP domain. Iphrame Encoder and iphrame Decoder are new software solutions offering simple conversion between SDI and IP domains with a range of options for enhanced monitoring and control. The new iphrame Surface allows any PC to be re-purposed as a multi-viewer capable of displaying a mix of IP and SDI signals and to act as a control interface for iphrame Vision Remote deployments.
Suitcase TV continues to develop MediaStor, its popular file-based media asset management system. MediaStor is a scalable enterprise class system with built in HSM and a wide range of media manipulation functions that go well beyond most people’s expectations of what media asset management can achieve. Proven and relied upon by tier 1 broadcasters worldwide, MediaStor is a must-see system for anyone seeking control, efficiency and increased monetisation of their assets.
