Ultra-low latency UHD contribution

For major sports events, live feeds are typically produced with a hybrid UHD HDR and 1080p SDR solution. Using the low-latency mode of our ViBE® CP9000 contribution encoder, you can contribute both UHD HDR and HD SDR signals from the venue and make them available to RD9000 decoders to output the live uncompressed signals in their original HDR format, or in the public cloud.

Intuitive UHD playout, production & storage

Ingesting UHD live content from multiple sources? No problem. Content can be ingested from camera feeds, contribution feeds decoded by our RD9000, or a record output of any master switcher. Our Spectrum™ X media servers support single channel recording, and the live content is recorded on either internal and/or shared storage. When you use our MediaGrid for UHD content storage, other Spectrum X servers can access the content directly without the need for media asset management.
