Axon debut on Cloudbass' new IP truck

Neuron processor as HD-SDI/UHD IP gateway

UK outside broadcast specialist Cloudbass has become the first outside broadcast company to transform an existing OB truck from HD-SDI to UHD IP using Axon Digital Design's signal processing technology. The transformation allows Cloudbass to offer broadcasters all the flexibility and speed of a fully IP workflow.

Upgrading the 20 camera vehicle took five weeks to complete and involved a total refurbishment of all working areas, as well as the installation of a full IP solution based around Axon's recently launched Neuron Network Attached Processor (NAP). This gateway product, which was designed to address the needs of complex IP and hybrid-IP environments, supports the latest industry standards by handling uncompressed SD, HD, 3G and UHD signals based on the ST2022-6 and ST2110 specifications.

To complement the Neuron system, Cloudbass also installed Axon Synview IP Multiviewers in the truck's main gallery, with additional Synapse UHD processing for the final output path. It also installed an Axon Cerebrum monitoring and control system for complex mobile production, news and studio live production, master control and remote production.

Due to using new IP technologies, Cloudbass was able to upgrade the truck within a short space of time.
