Mediaproxy Upgrades LogServer Platform


AUS: Mediaproxy has enhanced the capabilities of its LogServer solution.
LogServer is an IP-based logging, monitoring and analysis software and now provides support for 8K HEVC and TSoIP signals and video editing for material on social media platforms.
Since its original release, regular upgrades have consistently added new features and functionalities for its users. These updates have been designed in response to the changing nature of modern broadcasting, which has moved beyond traditional linear transmission to encompass new streaming technologies and outlets.
In the last 12 months, enhancements have included OTT monitoring capability. This means that it is now possible for master control room staff to scrutinise multiple OTT streams based on Adaptive Bitrate (ABR) technologies using monitor displays. This provides an efficient and comprehensive method of checking all possible video outlets, which is necessary to ensure expected levels of quality and service.
Beyond OTT is 8K resolution, with delivery involving HEVC compression and TSoIP streams. Some broadcasters are already looking at 8K transmission as the next step on from both HD and 4K. One such pioneer in the field is Japanese public broadcaster NHK, which will be using the format for its coverage of the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. Other broadcasters are following this lead, including Italy's RAI. Mediaproxy is also ready for this next stage as its systems are capable of handling 8K signals by converting any input to a proxy resolution. 
Erik Otto, CEO, Mediaproxy, said "Our technology is able to receive an 8K source and down-convert it into something manageable. The latest version of LogServer is 8K-ready and also able to handle HEVC and TSoIP encoded streams."
Connecting to social media has become a priority in TV broadcasting in recent years. To provide the same logging and compliance capabilities for this form of distribution as for linear TV and OTT, Mediaproxy has extended its social media publishing features to include advanced editing functionality. This enables operators and journalists to quickly turn clips around for platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Dailymotion and Brightcove.
