Axon Showcases 4K & Ethernet Infrastructure Solutions at NABShow2015
Ethernet infrastructure powers demo stations
In 2013 Axon unveiled a solution to transport live video over Ethernet, which evolved into Axon’s award-winning Neuron networked live media production system. At this year’s NAB, Axon will showcase the further developments in this field and prove the flexibility and interoperability of Ethernet AVB infrastructure by feeding all product demonstrations on the booth over fiber cable.
Demonstrations will include Synapse 4K signal processing, combined SynMC Master control and SynLive live production mixing, as well as the TRACS compliance recording and SMART transport stream monitoring. In addition, the team will demonstrate Neuron’s interoperability with third party products. The switch that provides the routing of all these signals will be visible on the booth.
NEW: Axon gives 4K production a boost
The recent requirements for 4K broadcast and content have led to an increased request for 4K capable signal processing equipment. Axon Synapse signal processing product line already offers a 4K up and down converter. At this NAB, Axon will launch three new 4K capable products: a distribution amplifier and two production ‘Tool Boxes’. Both production Tool Boxes (U4T100 & U4T140) will ease the challenges of a 4-wire production setup by carrying Vanc and Hanc data such as timecode and embedded audio. The U4T140 also provides a Dolby E encoder and decoder.
Headquartered in The Netherlands, and with offices across the world, Axon develops, manufactures and markets high quality broadcast equipment for the conversion, processing and compliance recording of audio and video signals. Products integrate advanced signal processing techniques, innovative engineering and modular flexibility and provide high quality, affordability and reliability within mission-critical broadcast applications.
