Teradek Supplies NASA With Live Streaming Infrastructure for Moon Landing’s 50th Anniversary

Fri, 19 Jul 2019 17:28:27 -0400

NASA is once again using Teradek to deliver a special program to millions of viewers around the world. Teradek Cube encoders will be deployed to send high-quality video over IP from different regions in the country to the broadcast facility at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
July 20, 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of NASA’s moon landing, and NASA will be celebrating by producing a live, multi-site 2-hour TV special for NASA-TV and The Science Channel. Teradek Cubes will be used by NASA in a mix of transmission technologies alongside their own video network, and Teradek’s Core management platform will be used to remotely route & configure encoders in the cloud. Program feeds will be delivered from several locations including Seattle, Houston, Huntsville, AL, Washington DC, and Wapakoneta, OH (birthplace of Neil Armstrong) to the Kennedy Space Center, where the final program will be live produced and distributed to TV networks.
NASA relied on Teradek in 2017 to provide live coverage of the Great American Eclipse, where the agency used Core to publish the show to Facebook, YouTube, Twitch, and simultaneously, which received over 53 million combined views. With such a successful broadcast, NASA has chosen to continue using Teradek solutions for their video over IP end-to-end workflow.
Teradek Cubes are agile, scalable HEVC encoders and decoders that transmit HD video point to point over the public internet. Core is Teradek’s cloud-based stream management platform that acts as a distribution center for routing live video from Teradek encoders to their destinations (live platforms or decoders). Together, they offer a powerful solution for video contribution & distribution to/from multiple locations.
“We’re very excited to be working closely with NASA to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. NASA’s production team demands the best from their broadcast systems, and Teradek is proud to offer our services and deliver exceptional video to NASA’s worldwide audience,” said Jon Landman, VP of Sales, Teradek. “We anticipate spectacular results in quality, engagement, and satisfaction for the upcoming program.”

Leader Previews New 25 GbE Options for LV560 Waveform, LV7600 Rasterizing Monitors

Thu, 18 Jul 2019 16:54:29 -0400

Leader Electronics announces two new 25 GbE options for the LV5600 portable broadcast-quality waveform monitor and its LV7600 rasterizing equivalent.
Option LV5600-SER06/LV7600-SER06 is a 25 GbE single-mode video-over-IP / multi-mode fiber IP interface which provides full conformance with the SMPTE 2110 standard for transmitting 4K content in a non-compressed format via Ethernet at up to 25 gigabits per second. SMPTE ST 2022-6, SMPTE ST 2110-20/-30/-40 IP standards are fully supported as well as SMPTE ST 2022-7 redundancy and SMPTE ST 2059 PTP synchronization. IP single stream mode, similar to 12G-SDI, allows a UHDTV uncompressed stream to be received. IP quad stream mode allows a UHD TV signal to be received as four uncompressed streams, similar to 4x 3G-SDI. Measurement features include IP status display, IP packet jitter display, PTP status display, SFP module display, IP event log display, path delay display and timing display. Video signal formats handled include 10 bit YCbCr 4:2:2 in all common HD standards as well as 3840 x 2160 pixel UHD at 47.95 through to 60 frames per second.
Option LV5600-SER32/LV7600-SER32 is an IP test pattern generator. This can generate HD and 3840 × 2160 UHD test signals for delivery via SMPTE ST 2110-20 / 30/31/40 IP. IP channel stress testing can be performed by adding jitter and errors to IP packets. A network synchronization mode allows PTP-synchronised video and audio test signals to be generated.
Both options will be introduced to the European market at the September 13th-17th IBC show in Amsterdam where Leader will be exhibiting on stand 11.A33.
Leader’s LV5600 is a mains-powered SDI/IP waveform monitor in a half-rack width 3U desktop chassis with a touch-screen front panel display. It provides all the facilities needed to monitor UHD/HD/SD SDI as well as video over IP signals seamlessly in a hybrid operating environment. Engineering-related features include test pattern generation, eye pattern display, closed-caption monitoring, CIE color chart, high dynamic range measurement, focus assist, customizable screen layout, tally interface, 4K/UHD operation, 10G IP input and 12G-SDI interfaces. SMPTE 2022-6, SMPTE 2022-7, and SMPTE 2110 protocols are all supported. The LV5600 also incorporates Leader’s intuitive Cinezone and Cinelite which are familiar to many content production staff.
The LV7600 rasterizing waveform monitor offers the same capabilities as the LV5600 but in a low-profile 19 inch 1U form-factor for easy rack or desk mounting.

FCC Modernizes Broadcaster Carriage Election Notice Rules

Thu, 11 Jul 2019 16:34:41 -0400

The Federal Communications Commission today voted to update its carriage election notice rules. Under the new rules, broadcasters need only send carriage election notices to multichannel video programming distributors (MVPDs) when first electing carriage or changing their carriage election status from must carry to retransmission consent or vice versa. These notices will be sent by email and will be posted in a broadcaster’s online public inspection file (OPIF). This approach will replace the current regulatory framework, in which a broadcast station typically must send a paper notice via certified mail to MVPDs, including each individual cable system, every three years, regardless of whether its carriage election changes.
To facilitate this new approach, the Commission also will require MVPDs to upload email and phone contact information to either the Cable Operations and Licensing System database or to their OPIF.
The Commission also adopted a Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, asking whether and how the modernized framework described in this Order should be extended to certain broadcasters and MVPDs that do not use the Commission databases referenced in this Order. Today’s action continues the Commission’s effort to modernize its media regulations.
Action by the Commission July 10, 2019 by Report and Order and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (FCC 19-69). Chairman Pai, Commissioners O’Rielly, Carr, Rosenworcel, and Starks approving.
