Comprimato Transcoding & Transport

AJA Bridge Live 12G

AJA and ComprimatoBRIDGE LIVE represents an exciting partnership between AJA and Comprimato, both long standing industry innovators. The merging of AJA’s hardware development and video I/O expertise with Comprimato’s transcoding and internet transport know-how means customers can expect the versatility, speed and quality needed for that competitive edge. The unique fusion of company talent between AJA and Comprimato ensures that BRIDGE LIVE delivers the performance and reliability needed for live H.265 (HEVC), H.264 (AVC, MPEG-4), H.262 (MPEG-2) and JPEG 2000* encode, decode, or transcode needs.

*Full H.265, H.264, H.262 I/O functionality included with BRIDGE LIVE turnkey system, JPEG 2000 I/O license options available.

Multi-Channel SDI Support

AJA Bridge Live 12G

HardwareBRIDGE LIVE supports up to 4x 3G-SDI simultaneously for multi-channel HD or 1x 12G-SDI for UltraHD connections I/O in 1RU. Dual 10GigE Ethernet ports provide network connectivity and dual power supplies provide peace of mind.

Administration, monitoring and access to BRIDGE LIVE is supported via either network browser or local Display Port. Indirect agnostic monitoring and automation is supported via both REST API and SNMP.

Open Source SRT Support

AJA Bridge Live 12G

SRT ReadySRT is an open source video transport protocol and technology stack, developed and pioneered by Haivision, that optimizes streaming performance across unpredictable networks with secure streams and easy firewall traversal, bringing the best quality live video over the worst networks. The SRT Open Source Project, supported by the SRT Alliance, is a collaborative community of industry leaders and developers striving to achieve lower latency internet video transport by continuously improving open-source SRT.

BRIDGE LIVE includes SRT (plus encryption) to ensure that end users are well positioned to deliver their streaming video content securely, with low latency and secure reliability.

Closed Caption & Metadata Support

AJA Bridge Live 12G

Metadata and Closed Caption SupportBRIDGE LIVE fully supports both closed captioning and additional metadata which is often a neglected feature set with lower cost encoding devices.

BRIDGE LIVE supports:
• SCTE-35/SCTE-104 Ad insertion markers
• CEA-608/CEA-708 Closed Captioning
• Embedding Closed Captioning/Subtitles into H.264 SEI messages
• Metadata pass through
• MPEG-2 ancillary packet support, SMPTE 2038
• Electronic Program Guide (EPG) on input

200ms Low Latency

AJA Bridge Live 12G

Transport, Encoding and DeliveryBRIDGE LIVE can be configured for low latency or high quality tasks. Depending on configuration, latency can be as low as 200ms. And, BRIDGE LIVE naturally gives you the tools to move content and deliver according to your workflow needs.

BRIDGE LIVE support:
• RTMP, RTMPS
• RTP, UDP
• SRT(plus encryption)
• MPEG Transport Stream
• ABR Ladder Profiles
• Hand-ff for OTT packaging

Wide Streaming Service Support

AJA Bridge Live 12G

Live Direct-to-Audience StreamingBRIDGE LIVE offers a comprehensive platform for live video streaming. Streaming support includes SRT, RTMP/S, RTP/UDP, and MPEG-TS. Using these standard protocols provides wide support for streaming services from Twitch, YouTube Live and Facebook Live. BRIDGE LIVE builds upon the tried and tested approach of AJA’s HELO streaming device, while including flexibility for multiple inputs, broad format and bit-rate support, as well as metadata and redundancy.

And, while streaming to CDNs for a direct-to-audience delivery, BRIDGE LIVE can simultaneously deliver different stream types to partners to re-transmit, transcode, or store.

Reference Quality Video

AJA Bridge Live 12G

Reference Video for Remote CollaborationProduction and Post: Connecting remote artists and clients using reference quality video, or providing a high quality window into production for those who cannot be on-set.

BRIDGE LIVE means the flexibility to leave media and equipment at the secure, managed facility, and have creative talent work together remotely with reference quality video.

BRIDGE LIVE compliments existing GUI driving technologies (e.g. RDP, Teradici) by layering on the reference quality video needed for creative confidence and client/executive sign-off. Choices between H.265 (4:2:0, 10-bit), H.264 (4:2:2, 10-bit) with turnkey BRIDGE LIVE, or via optional license JPEG 2000 (4:2:2, 10-bit), mean there is choice and flexibility in how to approach your needs in terms of quality and latency.

Remote Encoding and Transport

AJA Bridge Live 12G

Encoding for Remote ProductionBRIDGE LIVE also offers the flexibility to tap video from on-set recording devices and stream the output of cameras (over a secure private line with encryption) providing a high quality window into production for those who cannot be on-set.

AJA Bridge Live 12G

Remote Video Transport and ContributionFor Broadcast, BRIDGE LIVE provides an efficient mechanism for backhauling remote live SDI video sources to the media production facility, in order to be converted back to SDI and made available on the internal facility SDI router for ongoing production/transmission.

Traditional secure lines for remote production can be very expensive, with additional fees being levied for time before and after a production starts and ends. BRIDGE LIVE allows source cameras and local program out to be transported using publicly available internet, with no penalty for early or extended use during a production. BRIDGE LIVE also offers lower latency than traditional secure lines for time critical productions.

Bi-Directional HD Encoding/Decoding

AJA Bridge Live 12G

Simultaneous Bi-Directional Encoding and DecodingBRIDGE LIVE also supports simultaneous bi-directional encoding and decoding with HD and SD sources. Using a broadcast facility as an example, you are able to receive up to three remote HD-SDI sources using the public Internet and return one program feed to a remote location.

The broadcast facility receives the three incoming encoded stream sources from the remote location and decodes them into SDI for editing and production, while simultaneously returning to the remote location an encoded program feed.

The remote facility in turn receives and decodes the returned program feed for program monitoring over SDI, while continuing to encode and transmit three HD- SDI sources to the broadcast facility. In this use case, one BRIDGE LIVE device would be installed at the broadcast facility and a second BRIDGE LIVE device would be installed at the remote location.

Encoding for Live Production & Distribution

AJA Bridge Live 12G

Live Production EncodingTelcos, IPTV and cable operators are often presented with an SDI source or a live event or live production, which is needed as a simple MPEG-Transport Stream with H.264/H.262 encode. The delivered stream may be required for further processing (storage, production), or else be streamed directly to an IPTV/Cable network.

AJA Bridge Live 12G

Encoding for Content DistributionFor Studios and Broadcast applications BRIDGE LIVE facilitates primary distribution of finished and mastered content to partners for subsequent streaming to audiences.

BRIDGE LIVE can provide ABR ladder profiles or hand-off for OTT packaging. For example, encoding to H.264 or H.265 for hand-off with ABR ladder profiles, including pointing the ladder profile directly to a local packager or CDN.
