IBC 2017: Slomo.tv showcases sports and live TV production tools
On its booth at IBC 2017, slomo.tv, an international supplier of cost effective, high performance server-based video record and replay systems, will showcase a range of enhanced and extended server-based products designed to meet the specific requirements of sports, and especially live TV production. All the products on display are currently being used by broadcasters throughout Europe and Asia.
At IBC 2017 on stand 8.B40, slomo.tv will provide the first European showcase of videoReferee V, the latest addition to the company’s sports video judging family which is designed to meet video refereeing applications in soccer, handball, basketball, ice hockey and athletics (track and field). With 24 channels, this 4U server supports both 3G and HD formats and has four graphics outputs for monitors of up to 4K resolution displaying GUI, multiviewer and referee’s interfaces. It is designed to provide immediate file transfer into the sports arena network for easy decision making during in-play incidents. Also, its broadcast quality output meets all broadcasters’ arena TV needs.
First introduced at IBC last year, slomo.tv’s Simple RII compact production server has already attracted attention from sport broadcasters worldwide thanks to its advanced functionality and affordable price. At IBC 2017, the company debuts an enhanced version, complete with extended 3G SDI support, six recording channels, search capabilities on all six channels and two playback channels with transition effects. In addition, slomo.tv will offer a new 8-channel 3G video refereeing option.
A key focus of the slomo.tv booth will be its Dominator AT/3G server, which was launched at NAB and now features an enhanced AVC Intra encoder option which makes it compatible with Panasonic AVC Intra and Sony XAVC media formats.
Another key development is the integrated solution for remote broadcast based on slomo.tv’s Dominator AT/3G server and Production MAM by industry newcomer, HTS (booth 8.A82). This powerful combination enables users to remotely create Summaries and special Playlists as well as event logging and pre-editing during the live recording of shows.
“At IBC, we will demonstrate how slomo.tv is entering a new phase of development – capitalizing on our technological success, we are expanding into new markets,” commented Mike Gilman, CEO of slomo.tv. “Kate Krivitskaya has taken on the challenging role of General Manager, which will leave me more time to work with partners and investors around the globe. We are expecting the best IBC in our history.”
