Frankfurt, Germany – 30 March 2023 – arkona technologies GmbH, provider of IP core infrastructure solutions for top-tier broadcast productions, has announced plans to show the latest BLADE//runner software at their booth in the Central Hall C 4345.
Visitors to the booth will also see a world first – a next generation live production cloud solution on the first day of NAB.
“We expect NAB 2023 to be a breakthrough show,” said Erling Hedkvist, Sales & Business Development for arkona. “It is the first time we’ll be exhibiting in North America since we launched arkona publicly and we will be starting off with a bang. We can’t reveal any details yet, but anyone who is interested in the benefits of Cloud and high-end broadcast productions should stop by! Of course, we’ll also be showing our latest BLADE//runner release which was just tapped for a major installation in Australia.”
Designed for the modern broadcast facility where agility and scalability are essential, the BLADE//runner suite provides a highly flexible and modular core infrastructure for Tier-1 live broadcast productions. BLADE//runner provides a wide variety of tools for professional productions, including audio/video routing, compression, processing, and visualization, with open standards support and an API 1st approach. API 1st allows for a high degree of flexibility centered around user specific workflows. BLADE//runner is also controllable through NMOS IS-04/-05.
At NAB, arkona will be highlighting its newest version, BLADE//runner 2.2, which includes the new JXS application that extends the capability of the AT300, arkona’s latest generation Programmable Acceleration Card (PAC), with JPEG-XS. The JXS app is a great feature expansion of the BLADE//runner ecosystem for customers with a need for low latency high quality compression. In addition to JPEG-XS the new JXS app is also capable of handling ST2110-20/30/40 and 2022-6 uncompressed routing and processing.
