arkona technologies GmbH, provider of IP core infrastructure solutions for top-tier broadcast productions, has announced plans to show the latest BLADE//runner software at their booth in the Central Hall C 4345.
Visitors to the booth will also see a world first – a next generation live production cloud solution on the first day of NAB.
“We expect NAB 2023 to be a breakthrough show,” said Erling Hedkvist, Sales and Business Development for arkona. “It is the first time we’ll be exhibiting in North America since we launched arkona publicly and we will be starting off with a bang. We can’t reveal any details yet, but anyone who is interested in the benefits of Cloud and high end broadcast productions should stop by! Of course, we’ll also be showing our latest BLADE//runner release which was just tapped for a major installation in Australia.”
Designed for the modern broadcast facility where agility and scalability are essential, the BLADE//runner suite provides a highly flexible and modular core infrastructure for Tier-1 live broadcast productions. BLADE//runner provides a wide variety of tools for professional productions, including audio/video routing, compression, processing, and visualisation, with open standards support and an API 1st approach. API 1st allows for a high degree of flexibility centred around user specific workflows. BLADE//runner is also controllable through NMOS IS-04/-05.
At NAB, arkona will be highlighting its newest version, BLADE//runner 2.2, which includes the new JXS application that extends the capability of the AT300, arkona’s latest generation Programmable Acceleration Card (PAC), with JPEG-XS. The JXS app is a great feature expansion of the BLADE//runner ecosystem for customers with a need for low latency high quality compression. In addition to JPEG-XS the new JXS app is also capable of handling ST2110-20/30/40 and 2022-6 uncompressed routing and processing.
