UHD DVR SET FOR SKY BRASIL Wyplay


CONSUME BY JO RUDDOCK


Wyplay has been selected to power Sky Connect, the latest 4K Android TV DVR launched by Sky Brasil.


Sky Connect provides a wide set of features, including live satellite TV, pay-per-view, push and broadband VOD all in 4K UHD. Subscribers can enjoy


their favourite content in HD at any time with DVR and OTT streaming services such as Netfl ix or Sky Brasil’s proprietary VOD platform. They can also use ‘far-fi eld’ voice control through the Sky Connect Android TV environment.


By leveraging the work done for the launch of Linux STBs for Sky Brasil and DirecTV Latin America in 2016, Wyplay managed to meet parent company Vrio’s expectations. Wyplay also provided the Sky Brasil technical engineering

Zero Density BY JO RUDDOCK


Zero Density has released its fi rst hardware solution for virtual sets and broadcast graphics, Re Ampere. Each Re Ampere can double the rendering performance of real-time graphics – enabling broadcasters to tell stories with photorealistic UHD visuals straight out of the box, according to the company. Kuban Altan, co-founder and vice president of R&D at Zero Density, said: “Real-time graphics can be revolutionary, but they also come with a lot of questions. After years helping clients like


the operator’s existing STBs and provide on-going annual software maintenance as well as support for Android OS and APK updates on Sky Connect.

VIVID COMPRESSION DELIVERS 8K REAL-TIME ENCODING AND STREAMING MANAGE


Synamedia BY JO RUDDOCK


Synamedia has achieved 8K real- time encoding and streaming with ‘zero compromise’ on its Vivid Compression platform powered by AMD EPYC 7763 processors. Leveraging AMD processors, Synamedia says it has eliminated the


need for screen splitting and other technology tricks which compromise video quality. James Knight, director, global media and entertainment/ VFX, AMD, said: “Synamedia turning to third-generation EPYC processors was a natural fi t for the high-performance needs of 8K real-time encoding technology.” The Synamedia team built compression algorithms specifi cally to remove the need for technology trade-offs. This is achieved by leveraging the


need to create high-performance real-time graphics is now in a simple plug-and-play box.” Featuring the Nvidia RTX


A6000 GPU and AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro CPU, each Re Ampere is confi gured to optimise not just rendering performance, but also real-time video I/O, keying and compositing, even in multi-camera setups. Zero Density claims a single unit has enough processing power to enable UHD graphics streaming in real-time at 60fps without dropping a frame. Additional benefi ts for customers include the ability to access AI-driven processing power and a deep learning neural network to create sharper images and real-time ray tracing. In addition, GPU-driven processing and a PCIe Gen4 bus can help deliver multi-camera renders, composites and SDI video from a single unit.

This is said to eliminate issues with memory communication and throughput, as well as local video quality variations. These advancements, combined with Synamedia Vivid-AI artifi cial intelligence technology, produce true 8K video, according to the company. Synamedia has also extended
