Playout Trends
in multiple locations through a
common user interface.
The result is a flexible solution that
lets users very much cut their cloth
to fit; they can use their on-premises
playout system for complex jobs, and
a cloud solution for 24×7, pop-up, or
disaster recovery channels.
Pixel Power [now a Rohde & Schwarz
company] is very much going all in
on fully virtualised solutions and has
updated its core software technologies
for multi-platform playout and
graphics production, Gallium Workflow
Orchestration
and
StreamMaster
Media Processing, as a result.
Gallium 3.0 adds more than 50
enhancements to the software
including both live and file-based
open and closed subtitling; audio
watermarking; live, scheduled and
delayed recording and scripted
configurable triggering of external
systems. These triggers can use REST,
UDP and XML based integrations. The
StreamMaster 2.0 media processing
platform
adds
UHD
support;
uncompressed I/O over SMPTE ST2110; OP47 and SMPTE 2031 subtitle

cont'd...

Cinegy Air - feature rich version 14

insertion; and flexible recording of
the main output, input sources or
clean feeds including playback whilst
recording.
As well as scalable multi-channel
master control playout, Gallium and
StreamMaster can be configured to
produce fast turnaround live content
for VOD distribution, for example for
catch-up and time-delayed channels,
while still being able to flexibility
change elements of the output such
as advertising. Both have been
architected so that they can run in
a machine room, a corporate data
centre, in the cloud, or in hybrid
implementations.
Superstition is a rare thing in the
broadcast industry these days, but

you still find companies quite happy to
skip v13 software (though if it's been
around long enough to iterate 13 times
it is usually doing something right). A
case in point is Cinergy Air, which went
straight to v14 from v12 and added
some fairly hefty new features along
the way. These included 8K support via
IP and SDI; SRT encapsulated IP input
and output; increased performance
optimisation for Cloud and GPU
(resulting in up to 50% less CPU load);
WDM and WebCam input devices as
sources; Item Type customisable
colour categories; and the (re)
introduction of the Playout Engine as
a Windows service, bringing back a
feature that was effectively canned as
far back as Windows 2008.
ATEME's Titan Playout is an
interesting new entrant in the playout
arena, enabling as it does both the
origination of 24/7 linear TV channels
and the easy creation of pop-up
channels for short-term events or even
hyper-personalized programming on
D2C/OTT services. It is based on Titan's

core encoding / muxing / packaging
modules, and allows each channel
to pick and choose the operations
it requires, such as file playback,
live playback, graphic overlays and
A/V processing. It also comes with a
complete MAM, features an intelligent
off-line schedule editing function,
and can be deployed both on-prem
or in the cloud thanks to its native
virtualised microservices architecture.
Finally, and showing just how
far the CiaB concept has come and
that the cloud doesn't have it all its
own way just yet, Grass Valley's GV
STRATUS One can handle the entire
production process from recording,
transcoding and storage to streaming,
editing and playout from a mere 2RU
footprint. It includes over 500 hours
of 100Mbit storage and can support
four channels of playout and record,
while an automated rules engine and
social media management tools allow
production teams to manage, organise
and distribute content to a variety of
platforms.

GV STRATUS One capable of handling production to playout workflows

Production priorities have
changed for good
A

s production gradually resumes,
it's clear that beyond shortterm social distancing measures
the pandemic will have long term
consequences for workflows and the
workforce. Throughout the content
supply chain, companies have been
mobilised to create working practises
that allow individuals to work remotely.
This is all about flexibility - scaling up
teams beyond the capacity of physical
studios; drawing on a global talent
pool; or to bring in an element of
creativity from local cultures.
For business continuity and sheer
business adaptability, the cloud
gives productions flexibility to adapt
to changing circumstances, from a
world pandemic to a minor clash in
production schedules.
The option to spin up an environment
on-demand to fit the requirements of a
particular project and then reconfigure
it for the next project is a game
changer for many content producers.
Reality TV shows can take advantage

of AI and machine learning to quickly
turnaround growing volumes of
footage. News teams can aggregate
footage from anywhere and rapidly
clip, finish and publish online. Sports
editors can generate clips, highlights
and longer form content from the
comfort of their own homes.
Technology plays a key role in
making that a reality, making it
seamless to share content between
remote locations, avoiding conflicts
in handling assets, and providing low
latency streaming experiences that
allow creatives to work naturally.
With the economics of the industry
hard hit, productions will be looking
for even more cost-efficient means
of content creation. In a time when
businesses globally are conscious
of their carbon footprint, remote
collaboration will become core to
production. As scarring as the virus
experience has been, there will be
positive consequences resulting from
production lockdown. Chief among

these will be an enlightened attitude
to the practicality and benefits of the
work-centric cloud.
For many people in the industry this
was not an obvious assumption but
today we know that remote production
is possible while maintaining a high
level of productivity and quality.
No-one
wants
this
enforced
experiment to be permanent. The
industry thrives on the creative magic
that happens between people, when
those people are in close proximity.
But the economic, operational and
creative benefits of remote production

Working remotely will be the new norm

can no longer be ignored. Technology
such as Blackbird is proven to deliver
the zero latency connectivity required
to maintain gold standard production.
Before
COVID-19,
remote
collaboration was employed by a
pioneering few. Post-pandemic it will
become the norm for any member of
production to do more of their work
from wherever they may be, reducing
costs, improving speed, supercharging
agility with a long lasting positive
impact on media, business, culture and
economics.
