Breakthrough IP processing solution recognized by TVBEurope for innovation and outstanding product development
Imagine Communications, empowering the media and entertainment industry through transformative innovation, received NewBay’s Best of Show Award at IBC2017, presented at the annual conference and exhibition, for its Selenio™ Network Processor. The SNP is an all-IP-capable processing solution optimized for handling uncompressed UHD signals based on the SMPTE ST 2110 specification for transporting media over IP networks. Designed to usher in a new era in live production, the SNP enables production companies to optimize both studio and mobile facilities to take full advantage of the performance, agility and efficiency benefits of IT-based infrastructures.
“Recognition by TVBEurope for innovation and outstanding product development is extremely gratifying,” said Joshua Woo, SNP product manager, Imagine Communications. “The SNP was designed to meet the evolving needs of our customers and this award further validates the interest the solution has been attracting from production companies around the world.”
Both an SDI-to-IP gateway and an all-IP signal processing platform, the SNP provides the gamut of capabilities required in today’s evolving production operations, including HD-UHD up-and-down conversion and color space adjustments, as well as managing the High Dynamic Range (HDR) adaptations and conversions required for integrating UHD and HD signals. Imagine Communications’ SNP also provides important synchronization and timing functions, overseeing the integration of new signals into the production environment and helping to assure the optimal timing of SMPTE ST 2110 signals for interoperability with all other compliant equipment.
“The products nominated at IBC for the Best of Show program exemplify a high level of technology innovation that is the hallmark of the media and entertainment industry and shine a spotlight on the very best,” said Jenny Priestley, editor of TVBEurope.
Earlier this year, Swiss broadcast service provider tpc (technology and production center Switzerland ag) revealed the construction of a mobile production vehicle that will utilize Imagine’s new processing technology and is expected to be the first in the industry to support uncompressed HD and UHD signals over IP based on the SMPTE ST 2110 standard.
