It’s a stunning development and just the beginning of growth for the company in North America.”
TAG’s MCM-9000 software only, all IP-based UHD Multiviewer and Monitoring system combines sophisticated technology with simple operation to deliver features and functionality crucial to broadcasters, satellite operators, production companies and post-production facilities. The solution is uniquely optimized to address the SMPTE ST-2022-6/2110 standard in HD and 4K/UHD sources at the input; with HD & UHD outputs available as 2022-6/2110 uncompressed, and/or MPEG-TS, and simultaneously HLS output to allow mobility/viewing outside the MCR/NOC. Multiple formats are supported on the same platform at the input and output enabling the MCM-9000 to adapt to the whole ecosystem of broadcast requirements without changing equipment. Supported formats include: 2022-6/7 & 2110 SDI over IP uncompressed; MPEG-TS compressed (including TR-01 JPEG2000); and OTT (HLS and MPEG-DASH) sources. NAB visitors will also see new functionality that supports UHD (4K) 60P 12G at the Mosaic output, and the addition of rich, colorful Tally/UMD with TSL and/or TAG API protocols.
The entire scalable solution is supplied on a Dongle equipped with a reliable and stable Linux kernel. The system boots directly from the provided flash, which requires no installation, no hard drive, or any type of Operating System on the server. The system also functions fully in a Virtual Machine (VM) environment with a VM image provided instead of a Dongle.
TAG IP Monitoring and Multiviewer Builder
TAG’s new Monitoring and Multiviewer Builder allows users to “click it their way” to customize the number of inputs, outputs, tiles, and design a mosaic layout. TAG even recommends the best off-the-shelf hardware to users so they can achieve optimal results for their individual systems.
Part of TAG’s MCM-9000 platform, the MCL-9200 is a unique “all IP” software-based solution that decodes, analyzes and displays uncompressed SMPTE 2022-6 and 2110 SDI over IP signals and features UHD mosaic output for Multiviewer applications and environments.
The MCL-9200’s extremely low latency, combined with IP Networking/Content analysis, fault detection, Talley/UMD support, and alarms, provides the perfect solution for Production, Post Production, and Transmission Control Multiviewing requirements.
The Decrypter offers a proven and secure method of real time decryption, monitoring and viewing of OTT content after the packager within the secure zone. Content owners can be confident that all their content, will remain secured while streaming media – even OTT content – is monitored and analyzed within the TAG MCM-9000 IP software only platform.
TAG NMS (Network Management System) is a powerful option to the MCM-9000 that creates a combined comprehensive monitoring and control system. Utilizing two-way connectivity with the MCM-9000, TAG NMS receives fetches and logs in real-time SNMP alerts, alarms and the status of monitored channels to create short and long-term logs and reports.
TAG NMS uses available TAG API command sets in order to control all MCM-9000 features, functionalities and configurations, including real time manipulation and automation of video channels, layouts and Mosaics.
