Previously available only as an option for GatesAir’s IP Link audio codecs, the new standalone device provides reliability and security for virtually all types of IP data. This includes those from IP audio codecs, DAB radio/HD radio streams and web or SNMP-based remote-control applications. The device can be used Little big box: The standalone device provides security for virtually all types of IP data as an IP gateway or a LAN bridge to provide point-to- point (STL, studio-to-studio, remote contribution) and point-to-multipoint (SFNs, DAB/DAB+ networks, content syndication) connections. IPConnect fortifi es data transport across IP networks by minimising data loss associated with dropped packets, employing a combination of packet protection schemes with network/time diversity and packet-level forward error correction. Keyur Parikh, VP and general manager, Intraplex solutions, said: “As broadcasters gradually transition from legacy TDM networking solutions and towards IP, there is a greater urgency to strengthen transport reliability and network security.” 8.D60 Satellite services for broadcasters Russian Satellite Communications Company By Ian McMurray Red, green and blue: Lupo’s new Superpanel Full Colour 30 Personalised production process Annova By Erica Basnicki feeds, events and raw materials via personalised boards built from a large palette of widgets.

Joe French, CEO at Masstech, said the company is addressing storage that’s “not driven by any requirement to sell specifi c hardware or consumables. In fact, we are inviting visitors to our stand to fi nd out how they can even reduce their storage hardware requirements and reclaim some of their IT footprint by embracing hybrid technologies.” Demonstrations centre on FlashNet, Masstech’s media object storage application that can be deployed on-premise, in the cloud, or in a hybrid confi guration. The company says that FlashNet integrates with MAM, PAM, NRCS, automation, video server and library systems. MassStore, Masstech’s media services framework, is also on display. 7.C55
