StudioXperience Guests to Experience
Exciting New Workflows and
Production Capabilities for 2017

Waskul.TV is collaborating with our partners right now to finalize the solutions that you’ll encounter in the StudioXperience Broadcast Studio during 2017 appearances.

Once the solutions are finalized, we’ll share the details with you in a series of special videos and articles taking you through each step we’ve taken with our partners  to make the StudioXperience Broadcast Studio a world-class production and live performance environment.

Below you’ll find some of the areas we’re exploring.

New Routing, Monitoring and Viewing Capabilities Coming Soon!

As a technology showcase, StudioXperience utilizes a range of formats in its production and distribution workflows. So, flexibility and ease of routing and viewing content is critical to our operations just as it is for the largest broadcasters.

For 2017, we’re looking at routing, monitoring and multi-viewing solutions that deal with a range of data streams from basic 3G SDI signals and 12G UHD to HDR and IP-based UHD, AES and MADI. Equally important is the ability to mix connections allowing simultaneous use of copper, coax and fiber connections.

On the multiviewer side, 4K UHD source support and 4K output screen support with on screen status and alarms are important features we’ll be looking for. Viewing will be on large 4K displays so the solutions we’ll showcase will need to natively drive 4K screens.

Powerful Real-Time Graphics Generation

Currently the StudioXperience production workflow utilizes Adobe After Effects running on powerful HP Z Workstations for creating the graphics utilized in our productions. While the creative possibilities are amazing with this workflow, we’ll be looking to our partners for options that can simplify the production workflow by allowing for real-time graphics creation that can be seamlessly integrated into the live production workflow.

Full 4K SDI and IP Switching Capabilities

For 2017 we’re working with our partners to bring new production switching capabilities to StudioXperience. One key feature will be the ability to work simultaneously in most standards including 1080p, UHD and IP with 3G SDI, 12G UHD, Fiber and IP in/outputs. Additionally we’ll be striving for seamless integration with other key areas in our 2017 workflow with an overall focus on extending the creative possibilities for bringing viewers a more immersive experience.

Advanced Playout and Workflow Automation

In 2017, Waskul.TV will be evolving our IP-based services to include at least one IP-based channel with 24/7 linear content. To help deliver this experience for our viewers, StudioXperience will integrate an advanced playout solution into the StudioXperience workflow.

In addition to playout capabilities the solution will power additional key areas like centralized ingest, quality control, transcoding, content management and more.

UHD Encoding, Transcoding and IP Delivery

Extending StudioXperience capabilities to deliver adaptive bitrate streaming and VOD content to viewers on any screen across the globe is another challenge we’ll be taking on in 2017.  We’re looking closely at encoding, transcoding and content delivery solutions now with our partners to find the right solutions that will power an exception experience for Waskul.TV viewers across any IP network.

4K Broadcast Camera Solutions

StudioXperience has showcased a range of 4K UHD camera solutions over the last few years. For 2017, we’re working to standardize all appearances on a single camera platform that will provide the highest possible image quality and clarity.

This will allow us to maximize the effectiveness of our efforts and to deliver a consistent workflow story to audiences moving forward.
