Mumbai, India – Advantech will be showcasing the latest advances in its product portfolio for the broadcast video industry at Broadcast India, on 15-17 October. Advantech provides access to the latest video processing technology in powerful and efficient solutions that help OEMs build next-generation broadcast video infrastructure. The product demonstrations address three major challenges.
4K/Ultra High Definition (UHD) Video Support
With an increasing consumer focus on 4K TVs and broadcasters seeing ways to differentiate using 4K, the race is on to upgrade workflows to handle it. This has impacts across the entire “glass to glass” structure. Advantech has been collaborating with Sony on products for the Sony IP Live Production System to solve the UHD live video transport challenge, and will unveil their first 4K transport product during the show. On the distribution side, Advantech UHD HEVC Encoder Accelerators streamline the integration of HEVC functionality into server-based encoder implementations to get the balance of bandwidth efficiency and video quality required by UHD services at a lower budget and with less development effort.
