Overview

BRIDGE LIVE is a turnkey solution built for critical streaming applications with high performance 12G-SDI video encoding/decoding, stream-based transcoding, flexible I/O, comprehensive metadata support, closed caption support and all within a compact 1RU form factor with redundant power supplies.

Designed with the ability to support both low-latency and high-quality workflows across a range of codecs, containers, and protocols, BRIDGE LIVE enables numerous use cases; multi-input live streaming to platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, or Twitch, providing high quality reference video for remote collaboration in production and post, backhauling remote live SDI video sources to the media production facility, SDI to MPEG-TS conversions for Telcos/IPTV/Cable networks, through to encoding for content distribution with ABR ladder profiles or hand-off for OTT packaging, and all supported via public internet.

*plus optional annual maintenance and feature-set extensions

AJA and Comprimato

BRIDGE 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.

Hardware

BRIDGE LIVE supports up to 4x 3G-SDI simultaneously, or 1x 12G-SDI connections yielding 4 HD channels or 1 UltraHD channel of SDI video 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.
