IMT Delivers Media Private Cloud for Visual Data Media Services

Rhozet and EMC Isilon Scale-out NAS Essential in New Transcoding Workflows with Big Data Storage

Integrated Media Technologies, Inc. (IMT) has designed and implemented at Burbank’s Visual Data Media Services (VDMS) a new high performance transcoding system and shared storage workflow.  Key components in the new VDMS install are a Rhozet Carbon Coder transcode farm from Harmonic, Inc., combined with EMC Isilon’s no compromise scale-out NAS to create a large private cloud for asset management services.

John Trautman, CEO at VDMS, explained, “With IMT’s guidance, we have launched the backend infrastructure for our new and proprietary  asset management system that provides global broadcast file distribution and web publishing of all our clients’ digital assets.  With an optimized transcode platform and a large private cloud for storage, it makes managing and moving assets a straightforward and automated process.”

Pictured in Burbank, CA is John Trautman, CEO of Visual Data Media Services.

Visual Data Media Services has earned a solid reputation for quality, service and dependability by providing integrated end-to-end post-production solutions for over 15 years.  To meet the ever-evolving needs of television, feature film, and new media clients, VDMS focuses on the seamless repurposing and distribution of content for all media outlets, including Domestic Syndication, Network Broadcast, International Distribution, Home Video, Video-On-Demand, the Internet, and Mobile Devices.

As the industry transitions from physical asset inventories and distribution to digital catalogs and deliveries, it is increasingly difficult to manage assets and meet tightened delivery windows.  With a multitude of file formats, codec’s, and non-standard delivery platforms to deal with, the traditional methods no longer worked.

“We met with VDMS to determine the best of breed solution that would meet their workflow and performance needs,” explained IMT’s Jason Kranitz.  “Rhozet Carbon Coder was the most flexible of the transcoding products and fit their model nicely.  For the most comprehensive storage solution, Isilon provided the scalability and flexibility, plus the ultra-performance of their new X200 nodes.”

According to IMT’s Director of Architecture Jose Palencia, “The EMC Isilon system at VDMS accelerates high-concurrent and sequential throughput media applications, speeding access to massive amounts of critical data, dramatically reducing costs and complexity.”

The new Harmonic Rhozet and EMC Isilon X200 installation at VDMS enables clients to manage and distribute their content in a secure online environment.  Key features include customizable metadata schemas, file downloads, push files via Aspera, Smartjog and Signiant, full online asset screenings, and unlimited user access for client screenings to assist in licensing content.  All major formats and codec’s are supported.

“We realized we had to completely redesign our operation if we wanted to satisfy our clients and continue to grow at our current rapid pace,” remarked VDMS’s John Trautman.  “After many meetings with vendors at trade shows and interviewing a number of consulting companies, IMT clearly stood out.  They fully understood our complex workflows and gave us the media and storage networking solutions that are working flawlessly.  Obviously, we were under a time crunch, but after IMT’s strategy was finalized, we were able to get the entire project turned around in less than 60 days.”

Visual Data has earned its reputation for outstanding quality, service and dependability by providing integrated end-to-end post-production solutions for over 16 years.  Visual Data’s veteran management team, with over 85 years of combined industry knowledge, ensures that customers will be met with a high level of service and efficient turn-around on tight deadlines.

PESA Introduces World’s First HDcctv-Compliant Routing Switcher

HDcctv 16X16 Routing Switcher

Compact 1RU HDcctv 16X16 Routing Switcher

Huntsville, Alabama – December 27, 2011 – PESA® today unveiled the new 16X16 PESA HDcctv Routing Switcher, the world’s first HDcctv routing switcher with full compliance to the HDcctv Alliance™ high-definition video interface standard for security and surveillance systems. With just a single RG-59 coax cable for each port, users can connect up to 16 HDcctv-compliant video cameras to the PESA HDcctv Routing Switcher and output up to 16 individual coax connections for HDcctv DVR or display devices. Designed specifically for high-definition video over coax, PESA’s new 16X16 HDcctv Routing Switcher features a compact 1RU enclosure, local or remote network control options and a redundant power supply and control card option.

“The PESA HDcctv Routing Switcher is the ultimate interface where multiple HDcctv cameras and DVR’s need to be shared or switched in the best quality format available,” said Dan Holland, PESA’s Vice President of Product Marketing. “HDcctv is based on proven uncompressed high definition video technology so there is no need to compromise quality or worry about dropped packets, latency, or bandwidth allocation issues normally found with IP based technology.”

With a compact frame design, the PESA HDcctv Routing Switcher uses full uncompressed video technology to distribute brilliant high resolution images from devices as far away as 100m over traditional RG-59 coax cable. With the 1.5Gbps enabled transport for each port, video resolutions for 720p and 1080p are evenly distributed without compression. Unlike IP-based switches and hubs using distributed 10Gbps backbone, PESA’s HDcctv Routing Switcher allocates a dedicated 1.5Gbps for each device connected to the router. In aggregate comparison to IP solutions, PESA’s 16X16 HDcctv compliant routing system provides over 24Gbps of non-blocking, non-compressed video switching.

Based on the HDcctv Alliance standard, all inputs are auto-equalized and outputs reclocked to transmit 720p25/30, 720p50/60, or 1080p25/30 video resolutions distances up to 100m (300ft). Two independent reference inputs allow easy selection of gen-lock from black burst or a tri-level sync source. The frame assembly features a front load / hot swappable matrix card and includes space for an optional redundant power supply and control module. Each HDcctv Routing Switcher provides control interfaces for PESA’s Ethernet control system or can be configured to support many third-party control systems. Additionally, the PESA HDcctv Routing Switcher easily supports an optional local pushbutton control panel, up to 80 remote control panels, or control via a unique PESA soft-panel – a software emulated version of control panels.

With almost four decades of proven technology development in high-quality broadcast switching products, PESA continues to be an innovative provider of future-proof video distribution product solutions. The PESA 16X16 HDcctv Routing Switcher is the world’s first fully compliant HDcctv Matrix Switch and PESA’s roadmap includes several other HDcctv matrix and signal processing devices to be introduced in 2012.

As customers analyze ever larger amounts of video data and need to derive more value and ROI from their investment in video security and surveillance equipment, the HDcctv standard continues to deliver cost-effective, full uncompressed video solutions for users looking to upgrade legacy CCTV systems or design new greenfield megapixel IP video systems.

”The enormous market opportunity for uncompressed HD surveillance video over coax is increasingly widely recognized in the security industry,” observed Todd Rockoff, executive director of HDcctv Alliance. “Realization of that market opportunity requires multi-vendor/brand compatibility, which is ensured by compliance with the HDcctv standard. By delivering the world’s first HDcctv-compliant matrix switch, PESA has contributed a critical component for enterprise-class HDcctv-based surveillance systems.”

About HDcctv Alliance
HDcctv Alliance® is the non-profit industry association that develops and promulgates the global specification for high-definition closed-circuit television (HDcctv). The V1.0 HDcctv specification is derived from broadcast industry standards for 100% digital serial transmission of uncompressed video over coaxial cable. However, HDcctv is planned to also transmit video over various media (including optical fiber and Cat5), and the HDcctv standard optimizes the interface to meet the needs of the surveillance market. The Alliance promotes industry adoption of HDcctv technology, and it provides education both to the surveillance equipment industry and to equipment buyers. HDcctv-compliant products bear the distinctive HDcctv logo that guarantees transmission distance and interoperability with other HDcctv-compliant products. The Alliance also offers an HDcctv Certificate for video surveillance system designers, installers, and dealers through an education program.

Rai Way Italy relies on T-VIPS to ensure uninterrupted Digital TV Services

Oslo, Norway – T-VIPS, a global leader in professional video contribution and distribution solutions, today announced that its TNS541 Seamless TS Monitoring Switch has been chosen by Rai Way, the operator of Italy’s DTT network. The project is a continuation of the existing cooperation between T-VIPS and Rai Way which began in 2009 when Rai Way deployed T-VIPS’ solutions for its DVB-T digital terrestrial service. The TNS541s are currently being installed by T-VIPS’ business partner Communication Video Engineering (CVE). The project is scheduled to be fully live by the end of 2011.

“We are delighted to continue our partnership with T-VIPS, helping to bring its cutting edge technology to the Italian broadcast industry so that terrestrial customers can enjoy an uninterrupted service,” said Luca Catalano, CEO, CVE. “T-VIPS has demonstrated its ability to provide solutions of unrivalled reliability including its TNS541 solution which is the only seamless switch to have been deployed for SFN network operation.”

The TNS541s are to be situated at all the transmitter sites which are being fed by MPEG Transport Streams over both satellite and by an Ethernet connection. The TNS541 seamless switch monitors both incoming MPEG-2 transport streams for status and based upon customer configurable criteria, switches over automatically if required. The solution enables seamless switching in an SFN region and can handle both DVB-T and DVB-T2 services.

“The choice by RAI of the TNS541 further cements T-VIPS’ reputation for leadership in DTT, building upon our experience of major Digital Switchover project deployments in the UK, Norway, Sweden and other countries across Europe,” said Johnny Dolvik, CEO, T-VIPS. “I believe that our TNS541 will continue to be highly successful as rolling-out 1+1 redundancy greatly enhances the reliability of a DTT network. As well as protecting against poor performance in the distribution network, the seamless switch protects the modulators at the transmitter sites from major outages due to sync loss. I look forward to the TNS541 ensuring that Italian viewers get uninterrupted DTT services for many years to come.”

TNS541 Seamless TS Monitoring Switch
The TNS541 is part of the nSure line of monitoring and switching products. The TNS541 safeguards the delivery of high-quality video content, by providing 24/7 monitoring, advanced analysis and intelligent 1+1 redundancy switch-over between two MPEG-2 transport streams.
