Pebble Beach Systems Utilizes NDI® for Low-latency Monitoring

September 15, 2017 by Chuck Baker

At the 2017 IBC Show, Pebble Beach Systems will show a seamless integration with the NDI® IP video standard, developed by NewTek. Pebble’s integration is focused on removing monitoring delays that can be inherent to real-time video over IP virtualized workflows, and it has adopted NDI technology to provide low-latency confidence monitoring for its virtualized Orca software-defined integrated channel solution.

Pebble Beach reps said this new development increases the suitability for the playout of high value live, reactive channels and latency-sensitive applications using its Orca system. Operators can now view a confidence preview without the delays incurred by having to manage uncompressed video.

NDI provides a low-latency, lightweight, frame accurate video protocol, giving Pebble’s customers less than one frame of delay when confidence monitoring channel-in-a-box (CiaB) or virtualized playout systems over an IP network.

Ian Cockett, CTO of Pebble Beach Systems, said that if an operator is rolling a commercial break on top of a live feed, NDI monitoring gives them instantaneous feedback that the commercial break has actually started, the moment they press the button.

“When switching between live sources, they can immediately see that they’ve made the correct selection,” he said. “Whereas monitoring an H.264 compressed output can mean a delay of 5 or 6 seconds before they see a picture change, which is far from ideal.”
