Pinnacle at IBC2003

IBC2003 attendees can expect to see new Pinnacle Systems products for networked editing, ingest and playout and networked news and sports.

Pinnacle will debut a new version of the Liquid editing application for the entire Liquid family of nonlinear editing and compositing solutions. The new Liquid version will enhance networking support for increased workflow and smooth direct-to-disc integration. It also supports MXF enabling native file sharing with MediaStream servers.

Pinnacle will also showcase its new MediaStream encoders and decoders. The encoders support all of the MPEG-2 formats already offered by MediaStream, plus support for MXF/IMX to 50Mb/sec. MXF provides enhanced product interoperability by standardizing the compression formats across multiple products. Now MediaStream can share content with Liquid blue editing systems operating in MXF/IMX 50, greatly simplifying ingest, edit and playback workflow.

Every MediaStream server now features "Free HD" providing HD decode capability on every decode channel at no additional cost. MediaStream servers now ship with both HD and SD capability built-in.

The Vortex news solution will also be demonstrated at the show. The Vortex can handle 50 Mbps across the network and MPEG-2 long GOP for startling improvements in bandwidth and storage efficiency. It supports DV and MPEG 30, 40 and 50i.
