Magna Presents Latest in IP-Based Content Contribution

This year’s Broadcast Asia show marks a turning point for Magna Systems and Engineering as it celebrates its 50th anniversary in the broadcast industry by presenting its widest ever array of IP-based content contribution, content distribution, UHD production, workflow and monitoring solutions on stand 4M2-01.

As the Asia Pacific region increasingly looks for clever and efficient IP-based broadcasting and production solutions Magna Systems will not only be demonstrating them in partnership with their key technology principals but also highlighting its 50 years as a systems integration specialist in the broadcast industry.

With their history set very firmly in the early days of television and the broadcast industry Magna Systems and Engineering has evolved a culture based on quality, experience and trust – all of which are as true today as they were in 1968 and all of which will be on show and demonstrated at Broadcast Asia 2018.

Clearly much has changed in the broadcast industry and to a large extent, it has been Magna’s ability to change ahead of the times as well as with them that has meant Magna Systems is one of the most successful independent companies in the broadcast industry today.

A key feature on Magna’s stand at this year’s Broadcast Asia will be demonstrations of Magna’s problem-solving abilities and the depth of the partnerships it achieves with clients.

Magna often has to come up with totally bespoke solutions for problems that had not been anticipated in an initial brief or tender. Its management and leadership teams are spread across the Asia Pacific region and thus easily able to integrate and share ideas and it is these ideas that will also form the cornerstones of the Magna Systems stand at Broadcast Asia 2018.

Some key solutions and highlights on Magna’s Broadcast Asia 2018 stand include some of the industry’s true technology trailblazers.

There will be the FileCatalyst software platform designed to accelerate and manage file transfers securely and reliably. FileCatalyst is immune to the effects that latency and packet loss have on traditional file transfer methods including FTP, HTTP or CIFS. Global organisations use FileCatalyst to solve issues related to file transfer including content distribution, file sharing, and offsite backups.

TVU Networks will also be on the Magna Systems stand with their TVU Remote Production System (RPS). This clever system provides a lower cost alternative for live remote synchronised multi-camera coverage for news and sports. Instead of always relying on expensive on-location production trucks and large production crews, TVU RPS allows broadcasters to leverage their existing studio control room infrastructure and a public Internet connection from any venue to deliver frame accurate, genlocked and synchronised multi-camera remote production. TVU RPS is comprised of one rack-mount transmitter (encoder) and one rack-mount receiver (decoder). It features an easy-to-use web interface for monitoring and controlling all aspects of the transmission, including real-time previews of all-six channels, current bit-rate and latency. The TVU RPS transmitter can encode up to six synchronised SDI sources and transmit high quality and low latency IP video to the TVU receiver, which in turn outputs six synchronised SDI outputs.

Alongside these will be Tag Video Systems showing their MCM-9000 software-based IP monitoring solution combined with a state of the art IP Multiviewer for all broadcast layers to include un-compressed 2022-6/7 and 2110, JPEG2000 TR-01, MPEG2/4/HEVC Transport Steams and OTT. An UHD or HD video mosaic output of the monitored services with rich data and overlaid alerts is viewable from anywhere including on mobile devices. With over 300 preset errors and events, full ETR 290 and ATSC, baseband analysis, SNMP traps, syslog, email alerts with detailed event information and various notification types displayed on multiple mosaic layouts the MCM-9000 solution is at the top of its game.

Also in monitoring there’ll be demonstrations from Bridge Technologies as it highlights its advanced solutions for protecting service quality in the digital media and telecommunications industries. The company’s monitoring and analysis systems, intelligent switchers and virtual environments help deliver over 20,000 channels to more than 900 million subscribers in 94 countries. From head-end satellite ingress to microAnalytics in the home network, Bridge Technologies offers patented innovation and transparency.

In the world of high quality broadcast control systems and panels visitors to the Magna stand will also see demonstrations from BFE. The Asia Pacific market has been asking for a very real and credible option and alternative in the area of broadcast control systems for a long time and it is finally here in the shape of BFE’s unique solutions. BFE develops comprehensive solutions in broadcasting and media technology and their core competence is in studio systems, broadcasting vehicles and technical media systems.

Other Magna Systems and Engineering partners and principals in the Asia Pacific region include ChyronHego, Crystal, Enensys, GB Labs, Interra, Nevion, Pebble Beach Systems, SeaChange, Tedial and Telesteam.
