Tightrope Media Systems

Booth SL4228-Tightrope Media Systems’ Cablecast 6.0 server and automation platform for local cable and TV broadcasters brings together a suite of solutions designed to deliver content across multiple viewer platforms with built-in applications that minimize conversions and accelerate time to air.

Using Tightrope’s software-defined cross-conversion, users can load 1080p, 1080i, 720p or 480i content into Cablecast video servers and play it out natively or convert to any of these formats. Broadcasters can also mix files within the same frame rate family, such as 720p at 59.94 and 1080i at 29.97 fps.

The revamped user interface improves the speed and ease of program scheduling especially in multichannel environments, where undo/redo functionality streamlines the process of building and changing playout schedules right up until airtime.
