As well as highlighting the continuing success of its stalwart X series of products, for mid-level streaming applications, Streamstar will be showcasing its higher-end, 8-channel iPX systems geared to the needs of major broadcasters are looking for cost-effective solutions for smaller sports events.
Kevin Fitzgerald, Sales and Business Development Director of Streamstar, comments: “From our conversations with broadcasters we are aware that many are now facing the challenge of responding to expectations for coverage of more events across a greater number of sporting disciplines than ever before. It’s not always going to be possible, logistically or financially, to send an OB truck along, so they are on the lookout for systems that make it possible to achieve high-quality, cost-efficient streaming. It’s precisely that requirement which the iPX series addresses.”
Available in standard iPX (HD) and iPX-3G (3G/HD) versions, the 8-channel iPX systems have been designed to deliver robust and reliable live production and streaming – however demanding the project. Packed in a 4RU chassis with an optional redundant power supply, the iPX systems provide the full range of renowned Streamstar features, including replays and slomo, media playlists, powerful graphics capabilities, internal character generator, live sports graphics templates, and the company’s acclaimed and intuitive touchscreen user interface.
Underlining its ability to provide solutions to suit streaming applications of all sizes, Streamstar will also turn the spotlight on its portable studio product, CASE 800. Delivering a feature set including 8 live camera switching, superb instant replays and slomo, ISO recording of 6 channels, built-in character generator with live sports graphics, and integrated JVC camcorder remote control over IP, the CASE 800 is the ultimate in high-performance mobile live production and streaming systems.
Fitzgerald invites broadcasters and service providers interested in finding out how Streamstar can meet their needs for high-quality, cost-efficient streaming to visit the company’s IBC booth. He adds: “After a string of significant recent systems sales we believe we are embarking upon an exciting new phase of growth. We also look forward to discussing possible partnerships with resellers and distributors across Europe.”
