EA3203 ETERE ETX

03 April 2020

The market's most advanced IT-based, cost-efficient video management system is a complete channel in a box with full IP/NDI/SDI in and out capabilities.

Etere ETX is the most advanced, tightly integrated, cost-efficient video management system based entirely on IT technology. It is 4K ready and has a complete channel-in-a-box with full IP/NDI/SDI (in and out) for multiple frame rates. It can drive the most popular HD/SD digital video/audio/graphics platforms without using middleware/proprietary hardware.

ETX is a fully digital ingest/playout engine that provides professional video technology supporting all major essences and wrappers in the broadcast industry. It is capable of SDI output and multiple layers of graphics. Additionally, HEVC/ H.265 encoding is also available on Etere ETX. With ETX inserter, operators can create closed captions, including CEA 608 and CEA 708. In addition, operators can manage live subtitling with the ETX inserter and time delay. ETX can also integrate with a countdown timer displaying the remaining time until the broadcast of the following program.

As part of the Etere Ecosystem framework, Etere ETX features a distributed architecture that serves as a high-performing digital media solution to capture/playout servers, NLE systems, graphics/production servers, automation, and master control units. To receive an NDI source stream, use the live source object and initialize the "NDI Receiver" device like any other capture card. The distribution of content from the different ETX engines is controlled by Etere Media Management, the application that delivers the correct video to the right place at the proper time. In addition, Etere ETX video file transfer capability is one of the fastest in the market.

Etere ETX can manage various ingest/playout channels concurrently, making it a versatile multichannel solution capable of video acquisition, real-time compression, and network transmission with full support for different video codecs between channels. In addition, Etere ETX can be integrated with Etere Master Control. With ETX, you will need only one server to play, switch, fade, dissolve, insert the logo and perform CG functions. For customers who already use ETX, implementing an IT-based playout enhanced with master control functionalities requires only a simple software upgrade based on an add-on license; extra hardware is NOT needed.
Etere ETX can work at a high fault-tolerance level to avoid single points of failure due to the distribution of video data over various ingest and playout nodes. ETX allows different levels of redundancy to ensure service reliability. ETX also enables you to introduce integrated ingest/playout devices at a lower cost, supported by one of the widest ranges of devices to meet your needs perfectly.
Etere ETX enables real-time content delivery between Etere Automation and Etere Scheduling. Reduce manual operations with automated workflows configured to play cued clips automatically at a pre-scheduled time. Connectivity with Etere Scheduling for broadcast schedule publication ensures a seamless workflow delivery from IT playout to automation. Operators can capture HD/SD video from scheduled or manual content feeds for greater versatility. In addition, the Etere Automation status panel provides a user-friendly interface for better operational efficiency in fast-paced operations. With the remote control panel, operators can also control the automation remotely from different locations.
