BroadStream Solutions @ NAB 2016: North Hall, Booth N6315
Fully automated ‘plug & play’ server provides flexible zero second to 10-day time delay with graphics options
Atlanta, GA, USA – March 3, 2016 – Integrated Playout Specialist, BroadStream Solutions, will demonstrate its ARMADA Time Delay Server for the first time in the USA at NAB 2016 (North Hall, Booth N6315). The ARMADA Time Delay Server provides its customers with fully automated time delayed playout and replay from zero seconds up to 10 days.
“For broadcasters, telecom companies, service providers and Television Networks who work on time zone delays, regional delays, quality assurance or disaster recovery; the ARMADA Time Delay Server provides cost-effective, yet sophisticated and safe time delay options that you simply set and forget”, explains Peter Wharton, VP of Technology & Business Development at BroadStream Solutions Inc.
BroadStream Solutions has been providing Time Delay to its customers for a number of years and has a well-established and proven TimeDelay App for its OASYS automated playout platform already in the field, serving hundreds of channels globally.
Intended for fully automated operation with no user intervention, the ARMADA Time Delay Server saves on man hours and eliminates human error. Furthermore, the ARMADA Server and the associated Time Delay application is contained on one device so there is no need to use a separate control PC.
“The ARMADA Time Delay Server is perfect for recording the live feeds that you need to capture and delay on a consistent basis,” Wharton added.
The ARMADA Time Delay Server takes live inputs from SD-SDI, HD-SDI or IP and, provides SD-SDI, HD-SDI or IP outputs. With the option “DELAY-OUT” the system can play multiple time delay outputs from the same input and each output can have the same or different delay periods.
Additional outputs can be added to the Time Delay Server with the same or different delay and/or graphic overlay. This means the Time Delay Server can be used as a virtual distribution amplifier with optional delays and overlays.
Multiple delays are also possible on the same server with an optional single fixed graphic overlaid on each delayed output. This feature provides huge flexibility depending on the number of inputs and outputs in a given system.
With various configuration options on inputs, outputs and storage, ARMADA is available in 3RU as standard or 1RU where space is at a premium.
