TSL Products will announce the world’s first uncompressed video over IP (S2022-6) audio monitors, designed to smooth the transition to an IP based workflow. It is suited to meet the needs of any facility involved in the production and transmission of live productions, such as sports, news, and live events.
The PAM-IP range can monitor video, audio and its associated metadata from either a traditional 3G-SDI connection or a S2022-6 IP stream. It is created to work seamlessly in a hybrid environment where an SDI, AES and analogue based infrastructure can be monitored alongside an IP-based infrastructure.
“For the foreseeable future at least, infrastructures will be hybrids where existing standards and technologies co-exist and interoperate with the new. When developing the PAM-IP we were very aware the IP format wars are far from over and as a result have ended up with a highly flexible platform that will allow us to implement any Video over IP protocol or standard that may be of interest to our customers. The PAM-IP is capable of evolving with new Video and Audio over IP standards and protocols as they mature,” commented Pieter Schillebeeckx, Product Director at TSL Products.
Until now, it was difficult to monitor audio directly from an IP stream without going through some cumbersome format conversion first. TSL claims that with the PAM-IP range of audio monitors, customers can now monitor uncompressed video and audio over IP without superfluous format conversion hardware, thereby smoothing their transition to an all IP workflow.
The PAM-IP range will be available with several options including: Video over IP (S2022-6 with other formats following), Audio over IP (Dante/AES 67) and 4k (12G and Quad 3G-SDI).
