Adder at NAB: IP-based workflow; 4K KVM
Studio, control, post & transmission all linked via IP
March 28, 2014
specialist Adder Technology will partner with Stagebox at the NAB Show to show
a new end-to-end IP workflow across the broadcast chain.
The Adder stand will be divided into four sections, including the studio,
where Stagebox technology will work with Adder products, the control gallery,
post production and grading along with transmission playout.
“Live content captured in front of a green screen using cameras and
Stagebox technology, will then be fed in to a virtual studio,” said John
Halksworth, senior product manager, Adder Technology. “The Stagebox transmitter
sits on the back of the camera and sends the feed over IP to a receiver in the
control room. Management of the virtual studio workflow takes place in the
AdderLink Infinity environment, giving access for control to any allowed user
on the network. The entire workflow, from ingest through to transmission, is
completed over IP.”
Adder is also launching 4K-capable
KVM products at the show including the 4K DisplayPort extender, based on the
AdderLink XD522. A firmware
upgrade makes the device capable of extending 4K signals, which means that existing
XD522 products already in the field can be upgraded by customers. Adder
Technology will be on stand SL10105.
