Magna Systems & Engineering has announced it is representing TAG Video Systems Zer0 Friction broadcast technology which is designed to handle both compressed and uncompressed formats.
Supporting all major industry standards such as SMPTE 2110, 2022- 6/7, JPEG 2000, MPEG TS, DASH, HLS and CMAF, TAG’s solution can be applied to all four major broadcast applications: live production, playout, delivery and OTT. Zer0 Friction allows clients the operational agility to manage the software across applications and locations, thus maximising asset utilisation.
“For years the industry has expressed concerns about the low utilisation of broadcast technology,” stated TAG’s Zero Friction Officer Kevin Joyce. “In many cases systems are being used less than 30% of the time. With Zer0 Friction TAG’s customers are no longer restricted in how they use our multi-functional applications, where they use them across their ecosystem, or when they use them. Broadcasters can now use a multi-viewer for live production in a facility in London and as soon as they are done, apply the license to probe for errors in an OTT facility in New York. Finally, the clients will be unrestricted operationally and financially to deliver the best possible content to consumers with Zer0 Friction.”
Since its founding 12 years ago, TAG has been 100% SW, 100% IP, 100% COTS and it has been TAG’s philosophy to provide clients a zero-commitment trial of the TAG system to ensure 100% satisfaction.
