tpc now has a future-proof OB truck that will remain on the cutting edge of mobile production for many years to come. The flexible IP architecture is agnostic to video formats and resolutions and able to seamlessly integrate the latest compression schemes and picture-quality enhancements.
The SMPTE ST 2110 specification enables tpc to break out video, audio and auxiliary data into separate, discrete streams — boosting efficiency and flexibility over SDI-based solutions. In addition, the pure-IP approach lessens the cabling and power consumption requirements of an SDI or hybrid SDI-IP environment.
UHD1 is IP at its core and optimized for UHD — using standard or high dynamic range — but is also still capable of handling SDI-based signals. By working with uncompressed and standards-based UHD signals, tpc is able to process video signals to meet all client preferences without requiring a mezzanine compression scheme, while at the same time maximizing video quality and minimizing latency.
Most importantly, the tpc crew was able to get up to speed quickly with the next-generation technology, as it delivers the same performance characteristics and operational look and feel as a traditional SDI system, but with all the benefits of IP connectivity and software flexibility.
