KudosPro-IP

Video and Audio Processing for IP Systems

KudosPro-IP processing units can form a core component of any IP system and help broadcasters migrate from traditional baseband SDI video and audio processing to new hybrid or fully IP workflows. KudosPro-IP is equipped with a Grass Valley video-over-IP transceiver, providing up to four broadcast-quality processing channels with IP inputs and outputs conforming to SMPTE ST 2110, 2022-6 and 2022-7 over 10 GbE links and available in just 1 RU. KudosPro-IP also fully integrates with GV Orbit IP routing and control system, making integration simple and straightforward.

FEATURES

  • Dual- or quad-channel SD/HD/3G up/down/crossconversion, and processing over dual 10 GbE IP links
  • Multiple transport types available for each processing channel including:
    • Compressed IP transport using SMPTE ST 2042 (VC2) low-latency high-quality encoding profile
    • Uncompressed video transport using either VSF TR-03 and TR-04 RTP (SMPTE ST 2110), or SMPTE ST 2022-6 encapsulation
    • PCM audio using TR-03 & AES67
    • SMPTE ST 291 metadata support via IETF standard “RTP Payload for Ancillary Data”
  • Supports unicast as well as IGMPv3 source specific multicast, allowing point to point operation or transmission in multicast groups
  • Supports configuration of Ethernet links for maximum signal transport using both SFPs, or for dual link mode to provide link redundancy as per SMPTE ST 2022-7
  • 16-channel embedded audio processing for each video channel
  • Automatic aspect ratio conversion (AFD, VI, L23)
  • Powerful picture enhancement tools and clean-cut mode
  • Closed caption and timecode handling
  • Caption generator
  • Logo inserter, sidebar keyer and HDMI monitoring output

Applications

  • Easily integrate common broadcast processing tasks into IP workflows
