The new MCM-9000U now supports SMPTE’s newly published ST 2110 suite of standards
TAG V.S., the international specialist in advanced IP monitoring and high-quality UHD Multiviewers, has introduced an upgraded version of its flagship MCM-9000 software-only IP-Multiviewer. The new MCM-9000U incorporates all the functionality of its predecessor but now supports SMPTE’s newly published ST 2110 suite of standards for managed IP networks that address HD and UHD uncompressed video and audio streams at the Inputs and Outputs. NAB attendees will be the first to see demonstrations of the new MCM-9000U that will be held on TAG’s Booth SU 9510, and the IP Showcase Booth C12634.
The company will also highlight its TAG Decryptor for real time decryption, monitoring and viewing of OTT content; the MBC-7000 IP Multiviewer; and MCR-6000 real-time live audio transcoding solution.
“The emergence of IP signal transport has had a dramatic impact on production and post-production facilities,” says Abe Zerbib, TAG V.S. CEO. “But along with the benefits of speed, flexibility, improved quality and cost-savings, there are challenges to overcome. We are delighted to introduce the MCM-9000U at NAB, the industry’s first software-only Multiviewer and monitoring system that not only eases migration to an all IP infrastructure, but also supports the newly published SMPTE ST-2110 standard in HD and UHD that targets uncompressed video, which is so critical in all broadcast production and post production applications.”
The solution automatically scans networks, detects services, and utilizes simple drag and drop configuration capabilities for a customizable visual mosaic – viewable from anywhere, including mobile devices. Outputs from the monitored services also feature rich data overlays that serve as a tool for real-time error detection and alerts.
Capable of receiving large quantities of uncompressed sources and displaying them on the same screen, the MCM-9000U can create and display more “tiles”, thus reducing the number of monitors and interface devices required resulting in greater hardware efficiency. The MCM-9000U includes a web-based tool for layout creation and editing that facilitates the generation of multiple configurations, with numerous “tile” types and a variety of visual structures. The scalable solution runs on off-the-shelf hardware. Everything the customer needs, including the OS, a bootable product image and license, is delivered in its entirety on a Flash drive.
