BRIDGE LIVE Features:
AJA and Comprimato
BRIDGE LIVE is the result of an exciting collaboration between AJA and Comprimato, two long-time industry leaders. Customers can anticipate the adaptability, speed, and quality needed for that competitive advantage thanks to the combination of AJA's hardware development and video I/O experience with Comprimato's transcoding and internet transport capabilities. AJA and Comprimato's combined corporate talent guarantees that BRIDGE LIVE offers the performance and dependability required for live NDI, H.265 (HEVC), H.264 (AVC, MPEG-4), H.262 (MPEG-2) and JPEG 2000* encode, decode, and transcode demands.
Bi-Directional Encoding and Decoding
BRIDGE LIVE supports simultaneous bi-directional encoding and decoding with HD and SD sources. With a pair of BRIDGE LIVE systems, a broadcast facility can receive three incoming encoded camera sources from a remote location and decode them into SDI for editing and production, while simultaneously providing a program return to the remote location.
Encode/Decode/Transcode using NDI
BRIDGE LIVE can handle up to four 60p HD encodes/decodes or one 60p UltraHD encode/decode to/from SDI at the same time. The NDI feature in BRIDGE LIVE provides SDI to NDI (encode), NDI to SDI (decode), IP Video Streams to NDI (transcode), and NDI to IP Video Streams (transcode).
