At IBC 2022, Rohde & Schwarz, a global leader in broadcast transmitter and media technologies, will demonstrate how broadcasters can benefit from its software defined media solutions that are flexibly deployable, futureproof and support the evolution from SDI to IP.
Front and centre at the Rohde & Schwarz booth will be the R&S®PRISMON multiviewer and monitoring solution which will form part of a display that echoes a typical control room environment. The company’s playout solutions will also be highlighted as part of this multiviewing wall set-up.
PRISMON is a multihead, highly flexible, scalable, and multi-capable system designed to support multiviewing and monitoring for studio production and playout. The solution is fully software based, IP ST2110 ready and is gaining traction with customers looking for a futureproof investment that will see them through their evolution from SDI to IP. PRISMON is already deployed in both SDI and IP environments by several customers, such as SRF and Red Bee, across Europe.
The new Multiviewer Control Centre (MCC) is now available for PRISMON and will be demonstrated at IBC. MCC provides a single point of control for a network of multiviewers. This gives instant reconfiguration of multiple displays, either in response to the intuitive user interface or on command from a system-level automation system. It perfectly combines with the PRISMON Scalable Distributed Multiviewing (SDM) functionality. SDM enables any input on any output across system boundaries and allows PRISMON to share resources across a network, for instance to create a view with multiple Ultra HD signals, beyond the decoding capacity of a single system. Combining both MCC and SDM, customers can use PRISMON to build highly efficient and scalable large multiviewing systems based on COTS hardware.
James Gilbert, Director of Product and Solution Management, Media commented: “IP is the road our whole industry is travelling down, albeit at different speeds. Today, customers are seeking to futureproof any technology investment they make, so a proven multiviewer and monitoring solution that supports both SDI and IP makes enormous sense. We look forward to re-connecting with customers and industry colleagues at IBC and showing them how Rohde & Schwarz can help create flexible, agile workflows that are relevant now and in the future.”
