London, 4th September 2019 – Open Broadcast Systems is unveiling a raft of new product functionality at IBC 2019.

The company will be demonstrating its high-density encoder, which takes in Uncompressed IP video and outputs compressed MPEG-TS. It is the densest encoder setup the company has ever deployed and allows for at least double the density available with traditional SDI.

Visitors to the booth will also get a demonstration of the recently launched low latency encoding and decoding software. With an end-to-end latency of just sixty milliseconds (at 1080p60), it is the lowest currently achieved for an encoder / decoder pair using Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) IT hardware. It is also one of the lowest latencies achievable in the industry across any full-frame contribution encoder.  Open Broadcast Systems will be demonstrating this on its stand (7.A49) at IBC.

The company has also added SCTE-35 and SCTE-104 support to its C-200 encoders and decoders. This means that customers can now use these products in powerful ad insertion workflows, making it possible to insert local or personalised advertising downstream.

Kieran Kunhya, Managing Director, Open Broadcast Systems commented: “Media workflows are becoming increasingly complex, making it more challenging than ever to deliver a seamless video experience. We are working to make it simple for our customers to ensure the highest quality video possible whilst being to scale effectively with minimal hardware.”

Kieran Kunhya will also be presenting at the RIST Day at IBC on 16th September, where he will discuss using RIST to deliver content to tens of millions of people. For more information or to register for the event, please visit https://www.rist.tv/register-for-ibc-2019.
