The high-capacity server can automate uncompressed video playback within SMPTE 2022-6/7-compliant networks
Video Clarity, a provider of audio and video quality measurement and analysis systems, has launched ClearView Player IP, a high-capacity server with playlist functions for automatically playing and recording uncompressed video using new IP-related video transport standards. ClearView Player IP represents a new category of playback servers specifically designed for use in IP infrastructure.
“We have long been developing our uncompressed video recorder/player line in the SDI domain. Now that new IP network standards are making their way into professional production and transmission applications, product manufacturers and programmers need reliable source-video systems in their test labs as they perfect their IP-related products,” said Blake Homan, president and founder of Video Clarity.
ClearView Player IP is built for product manufacturers that need a system to play back one or two channels of video programming into a SMPTE 2022-6/7-compliant network, with a plan to support SMPTE 2110 (TR-03 and TR-04) as the standard develops. Manufacturers rely on the system to subjectively view the video for quality or feed the output to a processing engine for prechannel or preprogramme deployment quality testing. ClearView Player IP systems can also be deployed for broadcast- or venue-based playback when an uncompressed video source is required in an all-IP environment.
