Ideal Systems is an industry-leading broadcast, audiovisual, and media systems integrator providing innovative technology solutions to broadcast, telecommunications, enterprise, banking and finance, hospitality, retail, government, education and performance venue clients.
Ideal Systems was approached by a major football body in Malaysia to provide them with a solution to record, archive and perform shot logging for all of their competition matches. To meet these requirements, Ideal Systems needed multiple channels of SDI ingest in a single system, running on commodity hardware, to capture live feeds during the football matches, without being locked into a proprietary server platform.
Ideal Systems chose to work with Bluefish444 after comparing the offerings of a number of other vendors. They found the Bluefish444 solution worked best for these live sports requirements. They settled on an Epoch | 4K Supernova S+ for the live SDI video ingest, and IngeSTore multi-channel capture software that comes bundled with it.
With the primary NLE for live editing being Adobe Premiere Pro CC, Ideal Systems were confident the Bluefish444 Edit-While-Record workflow would integrate well.
To allow editors to share the XDCAM files, Ideal Systems integrated the Bluefish444-powered workstation with SNS EVO storage for capture directly to network-attached storage. This multi-vendor workflow solution allowed editors running on the same local network to access XDCAM files in real-time, via the Edit-While-Record features of IngeSTore coupled with Adobe Premiere Pro’s native support for growing files in the XDCAM format. Editors are able to quickly cut and mark highlights, and then publish the edited content.
