Rohde & Schwarz at IBC 2016

Rohde & Schwarz will present its latest product portfolio at this year’s IBC 2016 in Amsterdam in September, from video ingest and mastering to encoding and monitoring to broadcast and T&M equipment for HD formats such as 4K. The solutions are designed to support IMF, HDR and HFR.


Solutions for broadcast workflows

Rohde & Schwarz has expanded its R&S VENICE ingest and playout platform to include the R&S VENICE Control application. R&S VENICE Control is ingest software for controlling multicamera recordings. It’s designed to record up to 16 independent channels.


Release 6.1 of the R&S CLIPSTER mastering station focuses on HDR, expanded color scales, HFR and localization workflows. For localization, R&S CLIPSTER provides IMF subtitling and basic compositing, including floating point processing and color depth.

Encoding, multiplexing and broadcast equipment for every need

R&S PRIOS IP is a new member of the Rohde & Schwarz family of video boards. Designed for OEM customers, the board provides 10G Ethernet support for video over IP in addition to conventional SDI interfaces.


The R&S AVHE100 headend is intended for UltraHD and HD HEVC encoding, and provides the transport stream with HDR ancillary data. The SPTS function is designed for a pure encoder exchange and is intended for the IPTV market.

The BMM-810 platform from Rohde & Schwarz subsidiary GMIT includes an A/V multiviewer and monitoring solution for broadcast and OTT streaming. Building on the product, the company will also present a technology study with extensions for IP-based, mezzanine media transmission formats for playout/contribution.

T&M equipment for the latest standards

The company will be presenting T&M equipment for the latest satellite standards, especially for broadcast and professional services, including IP-based services. The test setups based on the R&S BTC broadcast test center and the R&S SMW high-end signal generator are used for performance testing of DVB-S2/S2X signals. The booth will also feature the R&S SLG satellite load generator for channel bonding and single-carrier or multicarrier signal generation. It is equipped with the most recent modifications and extensions of the ISDB-S2 intermediate frequency band up to 3,225 MHz.
