This is one of those products that gets announced four or five times, but Telestream put out a press release on their new Pipeline product.
Here’s the gist – it’s an SDI to DV25/50/etc converter, with a twist. Instead of outputting over firewire, they output to ethernet. So, you can move your capture away from your playback. That’s pretty neat. There are all kinds of scenarios in which that’s a useful ability to have. Plus, any time you can move more data to a standardized infrastructure within a facility, that’s nice.
I know some more about this product, but I don’t think I’m allowed to say yet. Check back after NAB.
