NAB 2011: VENICE clears path to the 3D future

(April 04, 2011)
DMN Newswire--2011-4-4--Hanover/Las Vegas. At NAB 2011, DVS will present its video server VENICE featuring new functions for stereoscopic workflows. With 3D play-out, the DVS video server enables smooth 3D live transmissions for professional broadcasting environments.

From April 11-14, DVS will be presenting its multi-channel VENICE video server with an upgraded feature set at its booth SL3305. Launched two years ago, VENICE has successfully positioned itself as a future-proof solution for ingest and play-out in real time, and it can be integrated effortlessly into any existing environment thanks to its open system structure. The video server supports a variety of compressed formats and can exchange material with all the latest NLE systems including Avid Media Composer and Apple Final Cut Pro.

The highlights of the DVS video server include the ability to work with the Avid ISIS storage system as well as the Interplay media and production asset management. The combination of DVS and Avid systems allows users to perform live video ingest via HD-SDI and file ingest of Professional Discs and P2 storage media using VENICE. Besides Apple Final Cut Pro, VENICE supports many other NLE systems - its codec variety and multi-channel capabilities provide users with maximum flexibility. Thanks to its "edit while write" function, video material can be viewed and edited while it is being recorded.

VENICE can be used both for 3D ingest as well as 3D play-out, ensuring a seamless stereoscopic live workflow. Equipped with the integrated STAN (stereoscopic analyzer) software from the Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz Institute, VENICE makes the everyday work of S3D production teams easier as it analyzes and corrects parameters such as geometry, camera distance and the stereo baseline in real time and manages both the recording and play-out of stereoscopic 3D material in HD quality - yielding massive time savings and making additional editing superfluous.     

Niklas Fabian, Product Manager at DVS: "Thanks to its compatibility with all established broadcast solutions, its modular and open structure as well as its multi-channel software and hardware architecture, VENICE offers real benefits for modern, future-proof, file-based broadcast workflows. With the latest features for stereoscopic production workflows, our video server is leading the way into the 3D future."
