Tel Aviv, Israel – February 25, 2020 — TAG Video Systems continues to demonstrate its Zer0 Friction customer experience with significant new capabilities added to its flagship system. Already the world leader in 100% SW, 100% IP, 100% COTS Probing, Monitoring and Multiviewing for all four of the major broadcast applications (Live Production, Playout, Delivery and OTT), TAG has increased support for additional sources, interfaces and, formats. In addition, TAG has added new audio output functionality and an updated layout editor.

New for NAB 2020
Increased capabilities for additional sources, Interfaces and Formats helps clients reduce operating costs and improve quality of experience.
TAG Video Systems will be demonstrating its ability to now support up to (48) 1080i ST 2110 sources with 2022-7 on a single server. This exciting new development expands a facility’s capacity to handle more uncompressed content streams on one COTS server, thus maximizing utilization of the client’s investment. As always the case with TAG, inputs can be freely mixed and matched with other uncompressed and compressed formats (including UHD).
TAG is also announcing support for Mellanox ConnectX-6 , the newest addition to the Mellanox Smart Interconnect suite. This brings 200 Gb connectivity, and combined with TAG’s optimized network architecture and software, will enable greater channel capacities and increased opportunities for use of 2022-7.
In addition, support for the Common Media Application Format (CMAF), an open, extensible standard that enables efficient streaming over the HLS and MPEG-DASH protocols, has been added to the platform to further expand the multitude of formats that TAG supports.
Mosaic audio output
TAG is also introducing Mosaic audio output that will allow the most flexible audio monitoring setup, customizable by each facility to their specifications.
Additional features recently introduced include:
• Support for additional encryption technologies
• Updated layout editor
• Advanced SCTE-35 monitoring features
• Configurable management proxy
