Las Vegas, 7th February 2017

Open Broadcast Systems,an advanced broadcast technology visionary, will be launching a number of solutions for IP contribution at NAB.

This includes a high density Integrated Receiver Decoder (IRD). Capable of handling 16 channels at one time, it is the highest density IRD currently on the market. Being completely software based, running as apps on standard IT hardware, it is also much more cost efficient than comparable solutions, enabling flexible deployment of contribution services over IP.

Open Broadcast Systems will also be launching a solution to natively generate uncompressed IP signals using a standard IT network and existing hardware. This will enable broadcasters to deliver extremely high quality uncompressed feeds over IP at a much lower cost than previously possible.

“Most of the industry agrees that IP contribution and distribution brings a number of benefits when it comes to cost and bandwidth efficiencies,” commented Kieran Kunhya, Founder, Open Broadcast Systems. “What most don’t realise is that the technology already exists today to deliver that with high reliability.”

Both solutions will be demonstrated on its booth (SL5624), along with Open Broadcast Systems’ existing suite of software-based encoders and decoders.
