Our team of experts will be on hand to answer all of your questions regarding the design and realization of innovative, high performance system solutions for studio and production environments, as well as the transmission of radio signals (video, audio, data) via telecommunication facilities.

The special VIDI topics for IBC 2017:

In addition to VIDI NMS, which we will present live at our trade fair stand, we have, of course, prepared information and lots of practical examples for the professional products of our long time partners Medialinks (IP Media Transport Technology) and Barnfind (Optical Campus Networks) and of our new partners APERI (Media Software Platform), NCAM (Real-time Augmented Reality Camera System) and Playbox (Playout solutions).

Furthermore, we will also be highlighting all of our services in the scope of our Event Service. This involves the Football World Cup 2018 in Russia in particular, as well as other significant events next year.

VIDI NMS “Network Management System”

A core pillar of VIDI is the device-neutral Network Management System (VIDI NMS). The system has been deployed successfully in many countries, where it demonstrates its performance and flexibility in heterogeneous networks on a daily basis.

VIDI NMS is a highly flexible tool for operating, managing, maintaining and provisioning our client’s devices and networks. The system is based on extensive experience in designing, building and running broadcast networks of all sizes and levels of complexity.

It employs a modular architecture that provides all clients with considerable scalability and flexibility, and a management network system which can be easily tailored to all specific needs.

VIDI Event Services

VIDI provides its national and international clients with high-quality broadcast solutions and services for the production of major live sporting events. Broadcasters and event organisers, and telecommunication companies too, turn to us as their professional partner when they need to deliver the action in real time and at the highest quality possible.

We offer our clients the know-how and proven project methodologies developed during more than twenty-five years' experience in the industry. Most of our experts have worked in teams responsible for transmitting the world's most popular sporting events, including international Soccer tournaments, the Olympics and many others.

Products of our long-time partners:

Medialinks - IP Media Transport Technology

Media Links is continuously advancing the state of the art in media transport technology and is a leader in realising Ethernet and SONET/SDH-based solutions for the contribution of audio, video and data. Media Links offers the only product suite on the market that enables the encapsulation of media to Ethernet, IP, SDH and SONET within the same platform and with 100% lossless hitless failover protection switching.
Media Links products have proven themselves in the field and in the studio, from major global sporting events to building large scale private networks.

Barnfind Technologies - Optical Media Campus Solutions with the Multi-Functional Signal Neutral Platform.

The distribution, switching, multiplexing and transparent transmission of signals has never been more flexible and/or universal. One key area of use is the live-remote production from stadiums and events, as well inside Optical Media Campus Solutions.

Recently one more public broadcaster in Germany ordered CWDM systems to connect e.g. stageboxes to OB vans. The main reasons for such a solution are the compact design, low power and unbeatable flexibility in the field.

Products of our new partners:

Aperi - Media Software Plattform

The Media Function Virtualization (MFV) technology allows for evolutionary migration from current SDI-centric installations to a future-proof, fully standards- and open source software-based system solution, where new media formats and additional features can be realized with instant spinning up and down of software applications. The agile, software-driven IP ecosystem also enables easy pay-per-use business models.

NCAM - Realtime Augmented Reality Camera System:

NCAM is unique camera tracking solution that offers film & TV productions virtual and augmented graphic technology without limits. The device uses a lightweight sensor bar attached to a camera to track natural markers in the environment, allowing the camera to move freely in all locations while generating a continuous stream of extremely precise positional and rotational information that can feed all industry standard graphics engines.

In combination with software solutions and services from Ventuz Technology AG, VIDI will be able to offer a full realtime graphical application.

Playbox Technology - Integrated Playout Server solutions

Within the last year VIDI installed the innovative Playbox Playout Server solutions in multiple locations and integrated them into the existing studio system environments. The value-for-money provided by these solutions is attracting an ever-increasing number of clients. The playout systems are now being used on a daily basis by various TV stations, allowing the stations to deliver their programs in HD quality, as well. The servers were pre-configured individually in the VIDI Service Center in line with the customer requirements and thoroughly tested before being integrated into the respective customer network.
