Snell & Wilcox Brings HD, 3 Gpbs Transition Tools
Snell & Wilcox will come to IBC2008 with a range of products to help broadcasters transition their operations to HDTV and 3 Gbps operations with a flexible, centrally controlled infrastructure.

With more than 400 intelligent component building blocks, Snell’s IQ Modular provides compatibility with 3G emerging standards and metadata-rich infrastructures, as well as current analog, SD and HD standards. Modules featured will include IQDSK00, an HD/SD downstream keyer; IQSPI00, an interfacing product with custom-configurable operational control; and the IQSDA2 series of single- and dual-channel SD/HD/3G-capable distribution products. New additions also include advanced Dolby E processing enhancements.

Snell will also show the new single-unit IQHIP00, a second-generation Hyperion quality-control engine. IQHIP00 features a dedicated local monitoring output in addition to remote IP thumbnailing capability and real-time, frame-accurate content status.

RollMap V3.1, the latest version of the company’s flagship control and monitoring system, incorporates custom-defined controls, SMS and e-mail alerts, real-time status and event reporting, audio-level metering, and advanced alarm-level masking and filtering. The RollSNMP V2.3 includes advances in system-level performance and integration of third-party SNMP traps into RollMap.

Also in the monitoring world is QC Station, an automated quality assurance system that leverages the algorithms of Hyperion to provide alarms and on-screen display of faults or anomalies in audio, video, and metadata.

In addition, Snell will display the latest improvements to its Alchemist Ph.C frame-rate standards converter and its Kahuna line of switchers.

Snell & Wilcox will be at Stand 8.B77.

The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
