At this year's IBC, MediaPower will be highlighting improvements to its award-winning range of products that includes NewsTouch touch-based live presentation apppliance, Arkki cost-effective MAM appliance with editing capabilities, and AirGo production and playout system.

MediaPower will also put focus on IP workflows by aiming to help broadcasters and content providers bridge the gap to IP playout, supporting simultaneous SDI and IP ingest & playout on its AirGo video server.

AirGo is a turnkey solution for multi-channel broadcasting that combines automation, simultaneous SDI & IP ingest/playout, and interactive graphics overlay in a system provisioned with RAID-protected storage. This single, compact, fully integrated multitasking box reduces the cost and effort to maintain a system that continues to scale in size and complexity, while easing the transition to IP workflows.

In addition to supporting all major codecs and wrappers, and simultaneous SDI and IP ingest/playout, it provides built-in automation and master control tools alongside an advanced graphics and branding suite (powered by ClassX) that allows broadcasters and operators better engage their audience and encourage brand recall.

AirGo is also configurable as a channel-in-a-box solution, allowing operators to start with what they need, while offering the flexibility to scale into a much larger and fully-redundant video management platform.

MediaPower will be at stand 7.J42 for IBC2015, where it will hold live demonstrations of NewsTouch, Arkki, and AirGo. AirGo will also be featured at the DDN stand 7.B33, as part of DDN’s playout workflow.
