London, UK, 13th February 2024 – Open Broadcast Systems has announced support for 100 Gigabit Ethernet (100G) networking in its low-latency encoders and decoders. This allows for dozens of ST 2022-6 or ST-2110 streams to be encoded and decoded in a single server, drastically increasing density and improving energy efficiency on a per channel basis.
Developed in-house by Open Broadcast Systems, this is the first known encode/decode solution in the marketplace to feature 100G support and is part of the company’s high performance video processing networking stack. As the product is based on Commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware, there is no vendor-specific hardware dependency and subsequent obsolescence.
It has been developed in response to the need for customers to bulk encode from ST-2110 to MPEG-TS/SRT, as well as bulk decode from MPEG-TS/SRT to ST-2110 as part of a transition to IP and the cloud.
Kieran Kunhya, Founder and CEO of Open Broadcast Systems, said: “As consumers demand more and more live content, ultra high-density encode and decode is key to making this happen in modern IP based facilities. It has been a massive technical endeavour implementing 100G support, but we know this will be a game-changer for many of our customers.”
100G support ships to customers from today. Open Broadcast Systems will be exhibiting at NAB from 14th – 17th April on booth W2442. Get in touch to book a meeting – https://www.obe.tv/event/nab-2024/.
