Air24 autoPlay module (option) New on-air module is specially made for highefficient news production in dynamic 24/7 conditions. The Air24 module has no binding to one or another AutoPlay automation playout system, so can easily be integrated into any studio complex based on the Azimuth video servers. Air24 is the best solution for the smooth transition to tapeless broadcasting, since makes this process more economical and almost “painless” for specialists. Unconventional Approach New on-air module is capable to create playlists in real time by editing old or adding new clips and blocks from database. Clips from the playlist can be instantly sent to air by «drag and drop». An operator can release not only ready clips, but also those in the process of recording. This is essential for compliance the strict schedule of the «hot» news broadcasting.

to specific needs of the user. Position of clips in playlist can be changed easiy. Search filter helps to find the necessary clip. An operator can review the final event without the broadcast stopping. The Air24 system allows playing out the event from the required moment in real time mode or by mark-in setting.

Unlimited Possibilities

Reliability

Air24 module features allow to working with playlist in two modes: with connected server (automated clips maintenance) or without connection to the server (manually). Events duration in on-air playlist is limited only by the disk array size. Air24 on-Air module simultaneously plays out events from the general playlist to different independent channels. Number of simultaneously broadcasted channels is limited only by system resources. Also, it is possible to connect an external switcher that allows the broadcast from the server and from external sources (live feed).

Air24 has a function enables synchronous broadcasting of a playlist using two servers – the main and standby. In case of a failure in the main server that can affect the quality of the transmitted signal, it is possible to switch broadcasting to start from the redundant resource. In case of extraordinary situations, the system can instantaneous transfer playout from the current event to the next one without the broadcast stop.

Ease of Use

Costs Reduction All operator actions are recorded to log- file that helps to understand the causes of defects in the air and decrease related costs in future.

Friendly interface of Air24 can be easily modified by changing the panels’ size and shape according

Videoarchive VideoArchive is media asset storage and management system. The system helps to create a single hightechnology production environment. System Architecture VideoArchive has distributed network structure and can include a variety of software and hardware components. Software components of the system are a common database and a number of multi© 2015-2016 BRAM Technologies

playout Automation functional self-contained modules. The database of VideoArchive is similar to the AutoPlay and NewsHouse database, therefore it is possible to upgrade to any of these systems. Hardware components of the system are the database server, media and video servers, tape or disk libraries, client workstations, VTRs. VideoArchive provides reliable data storage with built-in self-test and backup functions. The system can easily be scaled by the extension of existing or adding of new storages. The scaling of the system can be carried out without stopping the complex operations. Media Materials Storage The basic unit of materials storage is a clip consisting of audio-video file and its description - metadata. The VideoArchive system has a distributed data storage structure. All service information and metadata are located on the database server. Media materials can be stored on different types of storage devices. Depending on the access time to materials, storage devices are divided into on-line (available immediately and do not require human input), nearline (available through minor interval of time and do not require human input) and off-line (available after a considerable period of time and require human input). The on-line storage devices are video and media servers, near-line - tape or disk libraries, off-line - external computer storage devices or tapes. The VideoArchive tools provide complete freedom of media materials control within the system. Any individual or group copy and transfer of media files between the storage devices are available. One clip can simultaneously have multiple copies on different storage devices, including a copy of the video in low-resolution, which is always stored on-line and loaded first in the video window of user interface. Operation The process of adding a new material to the archive includes a new clip creation in database, text description input (to the standard fields or in any form), digital or analog video signal record to a video server disk array, ready files import from NLE system. During the import, the video files recompression with another codec and sound processing by the integrated sound processor are possible. If the material is placed only on videotape and does not have low resolution copy, the on-line access will consist only metadata stored in the database. Integrated filters provide fast and efficient search of materials by a variety of criteria. Special

12

categories filled by user allow description and search standardizing, increasing the speed of the required materials selection. If the found materials are on the on-line storages, they can be previewed and exported to any network station, copied or transferred to other system media storages. If the found materials are on the off-line storages (or user actions require the involvement of off-line storages), an electronic application entering to the archive service is created. In this case the following actions can be performed: the transfer of material to and from tape cassettes, tapes backup, tapes handing over and taking back, the transfer of materials from the archival tapes to external, registration of new and writing-off the old tapes. The transfer of material to/from the tape is carried out using the Azimuth video servers. When video exporting, recompression with another codec is possible. User generated the application always sees its completion status. For greater convenience of work with off-line storages, the VideoArchive system supports barcode printers and scanners. All user actions are strictly regulated by the access rights. Additions VideoArchive can be useful to those television companies that already have video servers from other brands. Most of them do not have built-in tools for video describing and search and work only with files on the hard disk. In this case, VideoArchive can store large amount of data and provide quick search. When materials are required for broadcasting, they will be automatically copied to a network storage (in this case - video server array). Yet the copying process can be carried out with separate files (standard export function) and in stream mode. Thus, VideoArchive can increase productivity by optimizing business processes and eliminating unnecessary operations. The VideoArchive system is a safe investment and guarantee of profit. www.automation.tv

Innovative technology based on the theory of graphs allows optimally implement any user and system requests. Media Data Collecting and Production The necessary materials for news preparation include: video, audio, graphics and text. Video materials can be captured to a disk storage system of video server from a controlled VTR, from any video resource manually or automatically on the schedule. Continuous record “in a loop” of news agencies video materials disallows to miss any frame of unscheduled «hot» news without requiring unlimited disk space. There is an ability to import files recorded on cameras with solid-state and optical drive. The supported formats are: AVI, QuickTime, and MXF. Pre-assembled materials can be imported from NLE systems. Specialized graphics templates for quick news titles creation are generated by means of the TitleEdit editor integrated in NewsHouse. Text materials can be recorded in the system in automatic or manual modes. There is an ability to record RSS news feeds. News Production From the media collected from various sources, news stories and issues are generated. For its creation and editing, there are separate software modules that can be installed on network workstations. The number of simultaneously working modules of news preparing and playout in the NewsHouse system is almost unlimited.

newsroom When creating a news scenario plan, journalist has an access to all materials registered in the NewsHouse system. Graphics, sound and video files can be stored on the media and video servers, on tape or optical libraries, external computer storages or videotapes. That means, that materials can be stored anywhere, but it does not matter for a journalist, because they are always at his hand. With the help of unique tools of describing and progressive searching technology in the NewsHouse system, the necessary material can be found in a second. The work with videos can be carried out both in high and low resolution. Working with low resolution videos is very useful for multi-user configurations, as it significantly reduces the network and disk load. Text, video, sound and graphics - everything is synchronized in news scenario plan. News supply is based on various forms of materials. NewsHouse allows to implement them all: synchron, studio, shot, voice over, graphics insertion, etc.). ** All terms used in the standard NewsHouse system can be changed by the user to any convenient. The news video review with reference to the text with 8 audio channels and 4 graphics tracks is available at any time, at any workplace. NewsHouse offers simultaneous multi-user work both on one issue, and one piece of news. In addition, a journalist can work with multiple releases and news. The editor has the ability of a remote control over all the ongoing work of journalists in real time. He can get involved in it, if necessary. In order to exclude the conflict in simultaneous operation of several editors and journalists on the same project, every user is given the rights, under which he/she can make certain changes to the

14

project. Thus, any employee has a limited working area, beyond which he/she has no access to the process. Editing For more efficient and easy news blocks creation, the NewsHouse system includes an updated NewsBase module. The module allows editing video and audio fragments with simple transition effects overlay, titles and graphics creation. Finished news stories are then played back from the Azimuth video servers. Playout Prepared, verified and signed news blocks goes on Air. The core of the process is Azimuth 12 video server, which allows to implement all the variations of material supply: clips and blocks playback from the video server, playback of Adobe Premiere and Apple Final Cut Pro editing projects, playback from the controlled VTRs, titles and graphics overlay, mixers and switchers control. During playout, the playlist and including events editing is allowed. Any change of the issue plan automatically leads to changes in the video’s, graphics’ and prompter’s playlists. Clips can be added, and deleted. Moreover, its order and properties can be changed. Each clip can start after the end of the previous one manually from external GPI signal or playout switcher. The issue control is carried out locally or remotely. Depending on the requirements, the NewsHouse system allows to organize as a fully automated news playout, and operations in standard mode with the anchor man.

multi-channel recording

serialcam SD/HD/UHD multi-camera recording Functions A key feature of the SerialCam system is the capability not only to synchronously ingest video and audio signals, but also create edit decision list (EDL) in XML format. This is relevant during multi-channel recording of various, especially repeated, events, for example when filming series scenes doubles.

SerialCam is a system for synchronous recording of an unlimited number of video and audio signals. During the recording process, the system creates an edit decision list (EDL) in XML format for further editing of digital media in non-linear editing systems. SerialCam is successfully applicable for multi-camera recording of movies, TV shows, concerts, sports and other events. SerialCam is a set of virtual multi-format video recorders in a compact version with a single control center. Operation with standard-definition (SD PAL 720x576) and high definition (HD 1080i) signals provides SerialCam with high flexibility. The user can select the compression of recording: ProRes, Avid DNxHD, Sony XDCAM HD, Panasonic AVC Intra and AVI, MOV or MXF container. When necessary to capture large number of incoming channels (8 or more), several servers are joined to each other over the Giga bit Ethernet network. In this case one of the servers runs the SerialCam shell program, which allows managing all available digitize resources and implement synchronous recording of incoming (chamber) video and audio channels. SerialCam is powered by the Azimuth VS- 5000 video servers. The use of Fly-Wheel hardware technology integrated in video server or time-base corrector software (depending on the type of video server) guarantees stability of the recorded video signal.

Switching performed by an operator can be carried out with the keyboard, external SC-CP panel or switcher (Sony, Panasonic, GrassValley, Kramer, etc.) connected to the server via common interfaces. By the end of the recording, a digitized multicam material and its EDL file will be placed on a disk array of the server. Depending on the format of the video and audio data recording and the kind of NLE system planned to be used, project director decides whether the recorded material is raw or finished, and if the re-digitalization from the tape is required, or the final editing in NLE system can be started. It may happen that the editing of the video material such as an entertainment event should be started during recording, without waiting for its completion. For such cases, the SerialCam system has built-in ClipOnLine function that allows editors to start working on the project almost immediately after the broadcast beginning. One or more editing stations can be connected to one disk array common with a server/servers by the help of SAN technology. These capabilities allows multicam editing during recording at each working place in real time even in HD format. SerialCam is a simple and reliable system. It can significantly reduce time costs and ensure a reduction in labor costs in the most critical in terms of deadlines and quality of the results links of TV production: director’s work, editing stations capacity and tasks parallelizing.

SerialCam also has a function of parallel recording, allowing simultaneously perform the main (primary) and secondary records. The main record is carried out to the disk array of the video server(s), which is built with maximum protection of RAID 5, 6 hardware, and provides a backup of all recorded media content. Secondary record can be made on any other media data storage available in your local network, SAN network or on a regular hard

drive (ohter data storage) connected to the server. The user can configure the primary and secondary records in the same or in different containers and/ or codecs. Thus, in the case of using one codec for primary and secondary records, additional hardware resources of the server will not require. For example, to record 8 channels in HD 1080 MOV ProRes422 HQ (actually 16 channels) one standard video server Azimuth will be needed.

In addition, the system allows displaying static text fields with user-defined settings of style, size and color. Any text field can be separate or linked to the video window. One multi-screen can contain several analogue or digital clocks with different time zones. There is a possibility of ScreenBox and AutoPlay playout system interoperation. In this case, ScreenBox receives protocol packets from AutoPlay by the network, including information about the names of the current and next playlist events, time to end of the current event, type of the next event start and other service information. Control Recording Option As an option, the ScreenBox system offers the function of control recording in 25 frame/sec mode with user-defined datarate. To lower the amount of video files, the size of recorded video can be reduced to the size of standard SD or HD resolutions. Materials can be recorded according to schedule or in the loop, i.e. the recorded video and audio information, as far as the array is filled, starts automatically to rewrite the oldest information.

The recorded image can be overlapped with the information about the channel name, current date and timecode. The brightness of the overlaid text changes dynamically in contrast to the level of original image brightness that always provides good information readability, while seeing the full picture not closed with the on-screen graphics. With the recording option in the ScreenBox system, standard delivery includes AirPlayer that allows to monitor recorded videos on remote workstations. AirPlayer simultaneously displays up to 4 video channels. Convenient Timeline and navigation system allow to quickly finding the necessary video fragment. In addition, by setting the labels of the beginning and the end of the necessary fragment, this fragment can be exported to a separate file for receiving to the advertiser or control organization. The number of AirPlayer workstations is unlimited. Any user who has rights can find, watch and export any fragment at his workstation by the network.

Airmonitor control recording AirMonitor is developed for multi-channel recording of synchronous audio and video signals. The system is the ideal solution for control broadcast recording. Architecture During the recording process, industrial H.264 hardware compression cards are used. This allows obtaining high quality video and audio under small rates. AirMonitor is able to record up to 64 audiovideo channels to a single server. The system consists of a video server with installed software and client 4 -channel player, which can be placed at an unlimited number of workstations. AirMonitor is capable to record analog video signals of PAL or SECAM standards and unbalanced analog audio signals. One recording channel includes 1 video and 1 audio signal. Material is recorded at 25 fps with a user-defined datarates. To decrease the video files volume, size of the recorded picture is reduced to 1/4 of the standard PAL resolution (360x288). The system also allows to reviewing all the connected channels. To save disk space, AirMonitor can record materials in a loop file, so that the recording video and audio information (when the array is full) automatically starts to delete an old information and a new material is recorded in its place. A size of the loop file is set by a user and is limited only by disk array capacity. Š 2015-2016 BRAM Technologies

System Monitoring and Control Recording For each channel, a recording schedule can be configured: random interval recording or periodic by the hour, day of the week, date, etc. For example, it can be configured to record one channel on Wednesdays from 7 to 9 pm and on Thursdays from 5 to 6 pm, and another - every day from 6 am to 12 midnight. The recording video can be overlaid with an information about the channel name, current date and timecode. Brightness of this data is constantly changing and adapting to the brightness of the basic image. This allows keeping the contrast level required for good readability of the data, but at the same time to see the full image not covered by the on-screen graphics. For the local clock of video server synchronization to sources of time signal local GPS receiver or NTP server can be used. AirPlayer Module Features

Application ■■ The range of AirMonitor application includes all TV

and video surveillance systems, broadcast and satellite channels monitoring. ■■ There is the possibility of AirMonitor and AutoPlay systems interoperation. While viewing a log report on clips that went on the air in the AutoPlay system, the player of AirMonitor shows the video recorded to AirMonitor array for the specific period of time by the defined channel. ■■ In many cases, in addition to software signals, the recording of signals from the on-air control room key points is carried out. Under such scheme it is easy to identify the «weakest link» in case of failure. ■■ To identify the «human factor», some users additionally install surveillance cameras in on-air control rooms. Video signals coming from these cameras are also connected to the AirMonitor system. Its multi-channel player helps to evaluate the personnel actions and its influence on the air quality.

AirPlayer allows reviewing recorded video at remote workstations. AirPlayer is capable to display up to 4 video channels simultaneously. Built-in search system allows you to instantly find and show video material of a particular channel in a specified time interval. The required fragment can be easily found on a convenient timeline. While reviewing a user can with a frame accuracy set the start and end marks of the required segment for its export to a file with a standard Xvid codec. The final file can be sent to advertisers as a confirmation to the number of ad views and duration. Video window of AirPlayer is duplicated to video output of a graphics card that allows video take out to composite or Y/C outputs. This is sufficient for information recording to traditional video recorders in PAL format. Number of workstations where AirPlayer can be installed is not limited. This means that any user with access rights to an array of the AirMonitor system can search, review and export the required fragment in the network at his workplace.
