Red Bee Media has created the world’s first Software Only Uncompressed Playout Deployment, leading the way in the IP and software transformation of the broadcasting industry. First showcased at IBC 2018, the solution is the first in the world to use uncompressed video over IP, without requiring any dedicated infrastructure. With systems running on private cloud deployments across multiple data centres, Red Bee Media will be able to deliver unmatched quality and flexibility to Tier 1 public and commercial broadcasters. Research & development has taken place over a period of 2 years and the solution will go live with several customers during 2019.
The broadcasting and media industry is steadily moving towards IP and software-centric environments for playout deployment. But current solutions are also relying on either compressed video feeds or single task hardware that is costly to acquire and maintain and that can only provide flexibility with unused capacity available. To answer the need for flexibility, agility and cost reduction for Tier 1 broadcasters who need to maintain premium video quality with low latency, Red Bee Media has created a completely IP and Software Based Playout Deployment for uncompressed video streams. The platform eliminates the need for any special purpose hardware or additional infrastructure that corrects issues in the video feeds.
