The robust firmware update streamlines user workflows with optional JPEG XS I/O licenses, RTMP input, ST 2022-7 hitless redundancy support, and input auto-reconfiguration.
BRIDGE LIVE was developed as a collaboration between AJA and Comprimato to deliver the performance, reliability, and ease of use needed for critical live encode, decode, or transcode needs. Equipped with 12G-SDI I/O plus the power and flexibility to enable real time bidirectional encoding, decoding, and transcoding for critical UltraHD and HD workflows, BRIDGE LIVE is an essential part of any modern live video production toolkit. A compact and robust 1RU form factor with redundant power supplies and a three year warranty means peace of mind even when dealing with the most demanding applications.
New for 2023 is the addition of a licensable option for JPEG XS input and output. Also new is RTMP input, SMPTE ST 2022-7 hitless redundancy for critical signal delivery and Input Auto-Reconfiguration.
Whether facilitating remote production, two-way interviews, live event streaming, synchronous multi-cam backhaul with HDR, cloud contribution, program return, confidence monitoring, collaborative production, ABR ladder profiles to hand off for OTT packaging, BRIDGE LIVE ensures simultaneous, secure, and stable workflows whether over private lines or the public internet.
