Virtualisation and cloud based graphics

RT Software led the way in broadcast virtualization with it’s Virtualized Production Server, vPS

vPs hosts RT Software’s fully virtualized real time graphics solution.  vPS is based on CotS hardware and allows an IT-based server to host multiple services and channels.

User benefits are manyfold – its scalability,  low cost of ownership, ease of management and efficiency all add up to a new era of cost effective broadcast infrastructure.

The reference platform supported by RTSW is the HP DL Series server running VMWare VSphere, although any platform that supports VMware vSphere Enterprise 6.5 and nVidia Grid can be used.  Virtual OS’s supported are Windows 10, WinServer2012/WinServer2016.  The core platform is supplemented with either single or multiple nVidia GPUs, AJA Corvid SDI video i/o and Mellanox IP video cards, plus Newtec NDI ® is fully supported for both video in and out.

NDI® is fully supported for both video in and out.  Development is currently engaged with support for IP SMPTE-ST2110.

Other platforms may be supported by request.
