TAG Video Systems to display software-based IP apps at Broadcast Asia

TAG Video Systems will be showcasing software IP-based UHD platform that targets the three primary media applications – Live Production, Playout, and Distribution – in its Asia partners’ stands: Magna Systems and Engineering (Level 4 Stand 4M2-01), and Ideal Systems (Level 6 Stand 6E3-01).

The company will bring their expertise to live production and playout related to monitoring and probing of uncompressed media signals in an IP environment.

Today with the acceleration of SMPTE ST 2110 replacing SDI within broadcast facilities, IP offers increased scalability and flexibility while enabling new capabilities such as remote and collaborative production.

TAG’s software approach, operating on standard COTS server hardware, promises to enable broadcasters to break away from purpose-built hardware and leverage the scale and agility that comes with software-deployed IP solutions.

TAG will showcase a high-density solution with multiple 100GE interfaces and support for ST-2022-7 network redundancy.

The company’s MCM-9000 platform, according to TAG, is the world’s first system that combines monitoring of compressed and uncompressed signals all within the same system and on the same screen.

TAG’s technology allows low latency to display along with features such as Tally and dynamic UMD integration for live production applications. This allows for full flexibility of a software-based approach to live production applications the company said in a statement.

The company states that its cross-application solution currently supports over 20,000 channels in facilities around the globe.
