London, UK, 5th December 2017

Open Broadcast Systems will be demonstrating its latest encoding and decoding solutions for IP contribution at CABSAT from 14th to 16thJanuary 2018, the company’s first time exhibiting in the region.

The company’s products allow for cost-effective encoding and decoding of video for broadcast contribution. All its solutions are software-based, running as apps on standard IT hardware. This means it can deliver a high level of cost efficiencies to its customers, as well as being able to build bespoke solutions in very short timeframes.

At CABSAT, Open Broadcast Systems will demonstrate the highest density Integrated Receiver Decoder (IRD) currently on the market. It allows for 16 channels to be simultaneously decoded on a 1U chassis – potentially replacing half a rack of equipment with a single server.

Kieran Kunhya, Managing Director, Open Broadcast Systems, said: “IP is not a future wish, it is already delivering vast amounts of video content every day. Not only does switching to IP deliver cost efficiencies, but it also reduces the complexity of broadcast workflows.”

Open Broadcast Systems will be exhibiting on stand ZB6-C31 from 14th– 16thJanuary 2018.
