At stand 5D3-01, SAM will show a host of technologies that explore the company’s leading position in software/virtualization, solutions for monitoring and workflow, IP and 4K.
SAM offers sophisticated software-driven platforms and going forward, it will transition further to a datacenter model for many additional product offerings. SAM’s CiaB solutions - ICE, ICE IP, and ICE SDC - coupled with Morpheus, Momentum and SAM’s xFile framework form a pathway to the future. In response to the growing market demand for adjusting content duration, SAM is demonstrating Alchemist Kronos, which brings Alchemist’s unmatched image quality to the application of duration adjustment within the software based xFile series.
Monitoring and Workflow:
SAM’s Media Biometrics will be on show, bringing unique capabilities to monitoring. For the first time, automated monitoring can not only understand the quality of media, but that it’s the right media. It’s now shipping in products across SAM’s portfolio including the new Sirius 800 integrated multiviewer, enabling monitoring by exception and reducing cost of operations.
Enabling the IP Transition
SAM will be demonstrating its full range of IP solutions, highlighting how it can help customers make a risk-free transition to IP whilst still addressing their current business needs. SAM’s new IP-Edge technology takes complexity away from hybrid and pure IP rollouts. Products that are IP-Edge enabled include routers, switchers, IQ processing, servers and playout systems, and customers can buy with confidence knowing that IP-Edge systems closely follow the interoperability goals of AIMS. One of the first products launched in the IP Edge family is the IQ Edge processing solution, developed to bridge the gap to IP environments by offering a range of image and audio processing capabilities in an integrated package.
Leading 4K Solutions:
SAM’s new Kula switcher range will be shown in Asia for the first time during BroadcastAsia 2016. Kula has already created a huge amount of interest in the market as the most powerful production switcher in its class. It breaks new ground with its price point and performance combination. Easy installation and set-up means operators can work quickly and efficiently, focusing on high value creative tasks. It’s capable of 4K/1080p/HD and SD in 1M/E and 2M/E versions, and can handle multiple formats making it both future-proof and adaptable for today’s production environment.
SAM will also be demonstrating its LiveTouch sports highlights solution, built on the company’s latest generation of 4K production servers, offering replay, slow-motion and powerful editing with no media movements.
