Avid Media Browse OUTPUTS to TV, Web

At NAB, Avid Technology will show its new Avid Media Browse system that supports Web and TV production for output to both. With a mouse click, the system targets the selected material and creates a Web copy in QuickTime, RealMedia, Microsoft Windows Media or MPEG-1 format. In addition, journalists can use Media Browse to create a new Web version while the video is being prepared for on-air broadcast.

Tandberg Intros IP for Broadband TV

Tandberg Television will launch its broadband IP architecture, designed to bridge the broadcast and broadband worlds, at NAB. It's based on a content-streaming headend platform that takes in MPEG-2 video and audio feeds, encodes or descrambles them, and then repurposes the content for multistreaming over the broadband IP network. The system can handle transmissions from a digital satellite transponder, digital cable headend, or digital terrestrial transmitter.
