MPTS 2022: Broadcast Solutions to show complete systems integration offering
Broadcast Solutions UK will be discussing its complete systems integration portfolio at the Media Production and Technology Show in London. The company is one of Europe’s largest OB van manufacturers but also develops projects for TV studios, MCRs, NCRS, video assistant referee solutions, sports venue media infrastructure, virtual studios, and remote production and IP-based production solutions.
Additionally, Broadcast Solutions will show the latest features of hi – human interface, the company’s broadcast and media control tool. Since its launch in 2019, hi has been installed in many OB vans, studios, MCRs, theatres and corporate facilities. It is the first intuitive control software for AV media, offering complete cross-platform control and usability options for contemporary user interfaces on smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc. The latest upgrades to the system, including full NMOS integration, auto-discovery and plug and play workflows, will be on show.
Also at MPTS is meshLink, a video encoding, full-duplex IP and mesh networking solution, that can encode and stream two HD or one 4K source simultaneously. meshLink represents the latest developments in RF technology on the one hand and breakthroughs in ultra-low latency UHD HEVC encoding on the other, combined in one product. Adding radios to the network results in a self-healing, self-forming wireless mesh network, offering up to 100Mbit data throughput on only one frequency.
Additionally, the company represents virtual studio solutions from Zero Density. The Zero Density portfolio offers a complete solution for virtual productions and consists of virtual studios and the AR platform Reality. Unreal Engine-native Reality is a real-time broadcast compositing software that combines video I/O, keying, compositing and rendering in a single engine and includes integrated keying technology, the Reality Keyer. The RealityHub control tool simplifies the connection of all components and automation and workflow integration via a single tool.
Broadcast Solutions is also the distribution partner for Dream Chip Technologies (DCT), which develops and manufactures the world’s smallest fully integrated professional 2K and 4K SDI cameras: the Atom one 2K and Atom one 4K. Both are smaller than action cams, but with all the professional features broadcasters expect. DCT also delivers high-speed cameras, real-time flicker removal and 4G/LTE video streaming solutions to the broadcast market.
The latest product is the Atom one SSM500. This miniature high-speed broadcast camera is fully IP-capable, can shoot 500fps in HDR, and comes with internal storage for 60 sec/500fps. In combination with CyanView IP RCP units, Dream Chip cameras can be controlled nearly everywhere and included in any broadcast workflow or TV production.
