AJA Video Systems - BRIDGE LIVE v1.14


Categories Video Processing

BRIDGE LIVE v1.14 is a powerful firmware update for AJA’s multi-channel UltraHD (UHD) and HD live video solution for remote production, contribution, collaboration, streaming, and delivery. The release includes optional perpetual JPEG XS I/O licenses available per HD channel or UltraHD channel/four channels of HD and streamlines user workflows with new customer-requested feature improvements that help automate workflow tasks.

Whether facilitating remote production, two-way interviews, live event streaming, multi-cam backhaul, field contribution, confidence monitoring, collaborative production, or ABR ladder profiles, AJA’s turnkey solution BRIDGE LIVE supports a wide range of streaming and contribution codecs, including NDI, H.265, H.264, MPEG-2, JPEG 2000, and now JPEG XS. BRIDGE LIVE v1.14 introduces two new license options for JPEG XS I/O, including BRIDGE LIVE JPEG-XS01, which supports a single HD channel, and BRIDGE LIVE JPEG-XS04, which supports a single channel of UltraHD or four HD channels. A new RTMP input with H.264 4:2:0 8-bit support is now available to users via the BRIDGE LIVE v.1.14 update, which also introduces support for ST2022-7 hitless redundancy via packet-by-packet comparison of RTP encapsulated traffic. This new feature enables the seamless reconstruction of a stream of RTP datagrams based on the transmission of multiple streams of identical content over potentially diverse paths.

Rounding out the update, input auto-reconfiguration for video and audio formats ensures that incoming formats are automatically recognized and passed through to the output. The output setting then determines if the formats (i.e., frame size, bit rate, etc.) will remain the same or change (EG: frame size, bit rate, etc.).
