Video & Streaming

Video

The video at TRI is captured on Sony PMV-EX3 cameras. The imaging devices in these camcorders are three 1/2 –inch CMOS sensors that allow us to produce video in full HD resolution of 1920x1080. In the edit room the live video can be cut on a Panasonic AV- HS450N HD/SD video switcher. The switcher’s Multi-Viewer function allows us to display up to 20 different images on two monitors, which we use as a virtual monitor wall. The program video from the switcher is sent to our web streaming servers and to an AJA Kona LHi capture card on a Mac Pro. Using Final Cut Pro, the video is captured, stored and ready to edit.

Streaming

TRI Studios utilizes a secure highly scalable streaming platform that has the ability to broadcast high bitrate HD video with fast video start-up times and uninterrupted playback at HD bitrates. TRI features 2 Digital Rapids StreamZHD encoders and broadcasts using the H.264 video codec at 720p, 30 frames per second with AAC audio. We also utilize two high redundancy/high-capacity all fiber (primary & backup) networks that offer maximum streaming throughput to its end users. Because TRI uses the largest live HD CDN, video is delivered faster and more consistent than any other network and is fully integrated with support across Flash, iPhone and iPad with detailed analytics.
