NAB Preview: Abekas Technology Plays Vital Role in Mira HD/SD JPEG-2000 Server
The Mira HD/SD JPEG-2000 production server, introduced at the 2009 NAB Show and slated to be on display this year, has been delivered to customers around the world for use in live slow-motion instant-replay applications. The fruits of a partnership between Abekas and DNF Controls were demonstrated with the DNF DMAT-AB control panel, designed specifically for use with the four-channel Mira production server. This Mira+DMAT combo provides an affordable yet high-quality solution for Tier 2 and Tier 3 live instant-replay application. Three-in/one-out operation is supported: three live cameras continuously record, and the fourth Mira video channel is always available for live instant replay with smooth slow-motion playback. DMAT supports multiple playlists to create game-highlight packages. In addition, Mira+DMAT features live instant switching among the three playback streams of the source video cameras on the single replay video channel — all within a compact, four-channel video server. Mira+DMAT is available now priced at less than $45,000.
Abekas’ AirCleaner profanity-elimination delay product features two new high-capacity models, providing 35 seconds and 70 seconds, respectively, of HD video/audio delay. AirCleaner eliminates inappropriate visuals and offensive audio with the touch of a button. Programmable parameters select delay time, degree of defocus, and audio jumble and whether to use two control panels, to allow two screeners to review content before it airs. Program continuity is maintained simply and easily, without requiring alternate content streams to mask errant material. These two new AirCleaner models are available now, priced of $13,000 for the 35-second model and $15,000 for the 70-second model.
