AG Video Systems (Stand 6E3-01) will expand its participation at BroadcastAsia 2019. TAG will showcase its game-changing 100% software IP-based UHD platform that targets the three primary media applications – live production, playout, and distribution – in its Asia partners’ stands: Magna Systems and Engineering (Level 4 Stand 4M2-01), and Ideal Systems (Level 6 Stand 6E3-01).
Initially established as a leader in real-time media probing, monitoring and multiviewing for conventional distribution applications, TAG has now brought their expertise to live production and playout, with unsurpassed breadth and depth of monitoring and probing of uncompressed media signals in an IP environment. Today with the acceleration of SMPTE ST 2110 replacing SDI within broadcast facilities, IP is enjoying even greater acceptance in the market, offering increased scalability and flexibility while enabling new capabilities such as remote and collaborative production.
Until TAG’s recent development, the industry had been challenged by the large number of high-bandwidth, uncompressed video signals that forced users to deploy proprietary hardware multiviewer solutions which limit flexibility and agility. TAG’s 100% software approach, operating on standard COTS server hardware, overcomes these restrictions and enables broadcasters to break away from purpose-built hardware and truly leverage the scale and agility that comes with software-deployed IP solutions. TAG’s advanced software skills also allowed it to break the software/bandwidth/timing limitations of ST 2110 in COTS hardware and has brought a high-density solution with multiple 100GE interfaces and support for ST-2022-7 network redundancy.
The company’s MCM-9000 platform is the world’s first system that combines monitoring of compressed and uncompressed signals all within the same system and on the same screen.
TAG’s technology allows low latency display along with features such as Tally and dynamic UMD integration, essential for live production applications. This finally brings the full flexibility of a software-based approach to live production applications.
