DVEO launches new version of time delay system
DVEO, the broadcast division of CMI, is now shipping an updated version of TS-TimeShifter, a broadcast time delay system for local delay of programming sent out across multiple time zones.
TS-TimeShifter receives DVB-ASI signals from satellite feeds or other sources. It captures MPEG-2 or H.264 transport streams and then plays them back after a delay that is finely adjustable from seconds to weeks. Programming can be time-shifted on a regular basis, such as broadcasting across time zones. The system can capture transport streams at the same time that it plays out previously scheduled streams.
The TS-TimeShifter is designed to faithfully reproduce the incoming signal, whether SD or HD, and is reliable for 24/7 operation. Features include the ability to preview the incoming stream before the TS-TimeShifter starts recording and detailed log files to provide operational status. The unit can be interfaced to DVEO’s HD decoder, TLV300E, to provide HD-SDI output
