DVEO, the broadcast division of San Diego based Computer Modules, Inc. (CMI), has announced the launch of the IP version of their popular TS-TimeShifter™ broadcast time delay system for local delay of programming sent out across multiple time zones. DVEO will introduce the new system at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam, September 10-14, at Stand 2.A48. Deliveries will start in October 2010.
Designed for broadcasters and content providers, the TS-TimeShifter/IP™ is a file server with knowledge of real time. It captures MPEG-2 or H.264 IP transport streams and plays them back after a delay that is finely adjustable from seconds to weeks.
“The TS-TimeShifter/IP provides an economical way for broadcasters to compensate for time zone differences,” noted Laszlo Zoltan, Sales Manager for DVEO. “This creates a huge cost savings to network operators who need to distribute their contents across continents where multiple time zones exist. Another important new feature is automatic adjustment for Daylight Saving Time.”
The TS-TimeShifter/IP is designed to faithfully reproduce the incoming signal. Whether the signal happens to be standard definition or high definition, the delayed stream will be 100% identical to the incoming stream. The TS-TimeShifter/IP is designed for 24/7 operation and is configured around a SuperMicro or similar enterprise class rack mounted server.
Ordering options include a dual power supply, a spare fully-tested hard drive, and a GPS Clock and/or SMPTE time code card or NTP for super-accurate time. The system comes standard with a RAID hard drive array.
