Booth SL1205 Rohde & Schwarz is directing the attention of NAB Show attendees to its VENICE video ingest and playout platform. The latest version in display is a 4K-compatible system, capable handling broadcast and post duties.
The Venice 4K offers workflows for SD to 4K and handles all current codecs, including Apple ProRes, Avid DNxHR and Sony XAVC. The company feels that due to its software architecture it will be able to address new codecs as they are developed.
Editors such as Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro and Avid MediaComposer can be used during ingest to directly access and start processing the data acquired by R&S VENICE. The system also simultaneously generates proxy files and closed-caption files from the data in the SDI stream.
The system operates in real time including up and downscaling and can function with mixed formats and codecs.
