Content Delivery

Managing feeds from live events requires ensuring there is no noticeable delay. Inputs must be synchronized to ensure outputs are always clean, with no disturbances, delivering the highest level of visual quality for any content reaching the viewer. Imagine enables real-time, high-quality signal transport via a multichannel uncompressed-over-IP solution that is well-suited to low-latency broadcast contribution applications. Using this on-ramp/off-ramp solution for conversion of SDI signals to IP streams and IP to SDI signals, you can plan for a phased, disruption-free transition to IP, while still supporting hybrid domains.
