IBC Exhibitors P – Q


Stand 8.E30

PESA will introduce the newly released Secura Media Manager at IBC 2019 in conjunction with Arista on Booth 8.E30.

PESA Secura, a unique platform that encompasses both video and audio broadcast signal standards as well as command and control (KVM) standards on one unified platform.

SMPTE ST 2110 is being used as a common standard for signal transfer and control. SMPTE ST 2110 is the ONLY open standard, specifying media overIP transport, available on the market today and provides for the transport of video, audio and data, for both compressed and uncompressed streams, while providing ultra-low latency timing combined with real-time control and management.

PESA’s focus has been centred on the security aspect of these systems. IP security today is not perfect and clients that need to protect their content, which includes their command and control infrastructures (KVM), can now do so through PESA’s Secura Media Platform.

PESA has integrated the government rated security standard, FIPS140-2 Level 3, into all PESA devices and has added military-grade encryption for streams on an IP network. This provides total control and security even if the first line of IP security is compromised. Secura Media Manager is ideally suited toward military, government, corporate and broadcast customers.

“PESA is uniquely positioned to provide expertise and know-how of secure media transport from its 46 Year history deploying mission critical systems”, said Scott Barella, PESA’s Chief TechnicalOfficer. “PESA has been at the forefront of many innovative products, and here we go again!

Prysmian Group
Stand 12.C31

The Multimedia Solutions division of the Prysmian Group presents its new Draka IP MediaLine Fiber based on the SMPTE ST 2110 standard for the first time at this year’s IBC. On display are non-metallic, gel-filled fiber optic central tube cables with 2 to 24 fibers for indoor broadcast applications and tight buffered fiber optic cables with patented BendBright® technology for mobile outdoor applications. With their high bandwidth and robust material, the new fiber optic cables meet the high demands of film and television production. The IBC will take place from 13th to 17th September in Amsterdam. BU Multimedia Solutions will be represented in Hall 12, Booth C31.

“Broadcast technology is moving more and more in the direction of fiber optics. Compared to conventional copper cables, fiber optic cables offer more bandwidth and less attenuation for data transmission,“ says Dipl.-Ing. Marc-Oliver Hentschel, Product Manager Studio Broadcast BU Multimedia Solutions, Prysmian Group. “We are pleased to present our new IP MediaLine Fiber for high-speed data transport over IP networks for the first time to a broad specialist audience at IBC 2019.”

The new product range comprises the central loose tube cable with two to 24 fibers. With its FireRes® sheathing, the non-metallic, gel-filled cable is ideal for indoor installation. The CPR Cca cables with very high flame-retardant performance feature dielectric glass yarn armouring for rodent resistance and high waterproofness. The new IP MediaLine Fiber cable range also includes the MFC OS2 fiber optic cable designed for mobile use. The tight buffered 9/125 fiber cables are equipped with the patented BendBright technology, making them very robust and resistant to bending. BendBright combines three features: low macro-bending sensitivity, the new Draka Colorlock XS coating and tight glass geometry. Together they create the ideal fiber for all patch cord, interconnect and jumper applications, offering companies measurable technical, economic and environmental benefits.

The new Draka fiber optic cables comply with the SMPTE 2110 standard, which describes the transmission of digital video signals (video stream) over an IP network in real time. Unlike previous IP video standards, transmission takes place in uncompressed format. Each data set (video, audio and additional data) is synchronized without affecting each other. This allows data to be routed and edited separately, even for metadata (timecode, subtitles, and teletext) associated with the data sets.
