Apantac’s TAHOMA IP Multiviewer Wins IBC2013 Pick Hit Award

Apantac’s new TAHOMA IP Multiviewer received a Pick Hit award from Broadcast Engineering, which was presented during IBC2013. Designed to decode multiple streams and display them on a single or multiple monitors, the TAHOMA IP supports multiple streaming formats and resolutions that are transported over IP and ASI. TAHOMA IP supports MPEG-2, MPEG-4 and H.264 with resolutions up to 1080P at 50/60Hz, as well as MPEG-1 Layer 2 and AAC audio formats.

TAHOMA IP is based on the TAHOMA Universal Multiviewer platform and shares the intuitive Apantac user interface and rich set of features. Control can be managed via front panel buttons for quick preset recalls, GPIs, Apantac ASCII Protocol (AXP), and Director, Apantac’s configuration and control application.

The TAHOMA Universal platform offers a full suite of Multiviewer solutions to display a large variety of video and computer / multimedia signal types, supports a range of resolutions and outputs, and includes models with integrated routing switchers.

Several TAHOMA IP Multiviewer models are available to decode and display from 4 to 16 images on a single display. Metadata display is also supported, including closed captions, AFD, WSS, and audio/video alarms.

“This is a great honor for our entire team,” comments Thomas Tang, President of Apantac. “Our new IP Multiviewer has created huge interest and I would like to credit our Engineering team for their hard work in creating this Multiviewer to meet the needs of broadcasters and network providers around the globe.”

Apantac is working on a number of future IP products including a hybrid version of the TAHOMA IP Multiviewer, which will support a mix of IP and base band video.
