Steaming video doesn’t have to suck

dscn1786.JPGAt NAB, the Digital Rapids booth is a destination–big and busy, broadcasters lined up at 9a for help with the inscrutable mysteries of encoding, compression, and streaming. This is Digital Rapids’ first year at Infocomm and at their inconspicuous booth (2772) they offer help with the same inscrutable problems. It’s called the TouchStream.

Broadcasters expect pristine quality from a video signal (you can imagine how they feel about streaming). The quote is “never has so much technology been required to make video look so bad.” Here in the world of systems integrators it’s often a win just to get streaming to happen at reasonable quality and within budget.

Broadcast Pix has matured into a company that’s increasingly relevent in a world where everyone is a content creator. The Slate G product–which combines switcher, clip store and graphics in one portable, inexpensive system has seen success in the range of live content venues large and small.

Barix Brings IP Intercom to InfoComm
