Rohde & Schwarz to support German TV Platform with UltraHD demo at IFA 2018
The German TV Platform will hold a UHD demonstration at IFA 2018 at hall 26, booth 203. A series of clips in SDR and HDR/HLG format will be looped on a 77″ UHD TV, offering visitors an ultra high definition viewing experience with high-contrast images.
Rohde & Schwarz will support this demo with its R&S VENICE 4K ingest and playout platform, R&S AVHE100 encoding and multiplexing solution, and R&S SFC multistandard modulator.
4K material will be played out via the R&S VENICE 4K ingest and playout platform and transferred with HDR metadata to the R&S AVHE100 encoding and multiplexing solution. The R&S AVHE100 will encode the video data in the efficient HEVC format, create a multiplex, and transmit it to the R&S SFC multistandard modulator. The modulated signal will be fed to a TV and displayed.
R&S VENICE 4K is a video server for SDI ingest and studio playout, file import, transcoding and media transfer operations. The R&S AVHE100 encoding and multiplexing solution is a fully software based, flexible multi-codec platform that supports HEVC, H.264 and MPEG-2. It also permits all types of codecs and resolutions to be combined in a statistical multiplex.
The R&S SFC compact modulator is a cost-efficient multistandard signal source. It supports realtime coding for all conventional digital and analog TV and audio broadcasting standards. A built-in controller makes the modulator ideal even for standalone operation.
