Pipeline Replay high-definition, multi-angle capture and playback

Telestream Pipeline™ Replay™ is a cost-effective, easy-to-use system for capturing multiple high-definition camera feeds, for instant synchronized review of any camera angle from a live event timeline. With Pipeline Replay, you can record an entire day's event, instantly review any point of time, then jump back to view live action. Scrub, in sync, over the entire event timeline, creating a seamless multi-clip playback experience. Pipeline Replay also allows you to repurpose media for editing, transcoding, creation of highlights, or web/mobile distribution. Pipeline Replay combines Telestream Pipeline HD Dual hardware encoder with its high-performance, multi-clip Replay software application.

Pipeline HD Dual real-time hardware encoder
Each Pipeline HD Dual in a Pipeline Replay system captures two channels of HD-SDI video from live sources and encodes them in real time to Apple ProRes HD. Since files are immediately accessible while they are being captured, Pipeline is ideal for instant review of live sports action. Pipeline's compact, one-rack-unit size offers unparalleled encoding density and portability for easy installation in mobile sports vehicles. Since it is network-based, Pipeline is highly scalable and easy for anyone on the network to access.

Pipeline Replay multi-clip player application
Replay is a multi-clip player that simultaneously synchronizes dozens high-definition camera feeds. With frame accurate timing data, the player can view any point in time to provide you with an accurate picture of what is happening on any section of the track or field. You can even copy content right from the timeline to a laptop or external drive for later review, anytime, anywhere.

Capture IP data stream and add customer metadata
Replay also allows you to capture an event's IP data stream. The time-stamped data is extracted and placed as markers on the timeline with a descriptive name, enabling one-click access directly to the action. Replay also allows custom metadata logging after the event.

Since the system is XML-driven, you can add custom metadata tags and create new markers for incidents you want to review later. It all goes into an XML document that can be used for archiving purposes. Pipeline Replay can easily be customized to ingest time-stamped metadata from multiple sources, making it useful for all types of live, multi-camera events or sports, reality TV production, or applications where review and logging of multiple
camera angles is required.

Telestream NASCAR Project Wins IBC2012 Innovation Awards

Nevada City and San Jose, California, September 10, 2012 - Telestream®, a leading provider of video transcoding and workflow solutions, and Quantum, a global expert in data protection and big data management, today announced that the NASCAR video capture and replay project incorporating technology from both companies won the prestigious IBC2012 Innovation Award in the Content Management category. Telestream developed the video capture and replay system for NASCAR’s high-speed sports officiating. The award recognized NASCAR and its project partners, including Quantum for its StorNext data management software and CineSys for its disk storage.

“It is an honor for the NASCAR project to be recognized by the IBC,” said Barbara DeHart, vice president of marketing at Telestream. “The new race control system would not have been possible without the collective efforts of NASCARProductions, along with the Telestream, Quantum and CineSys teams. Together, we were able to bring high-quality capture and replay into the race-day operations of one of the most exciting sports around.”

In the fast-paced world of NASCAR racing, where broadcasts reach more than 150 countries, video also plays a key role in controlling NASCAR races. The new race control system is based on Telestream’s Pipeline HD hardware encoder and a new, high-performance, multi-clip Pipeline Replay application.  The scalable, file-based system provides instant capture and synchronous display of 18 high definition (HD) camera feeds, enabling instant access, search, and analysis of an entire race event.

“The instant replay system that Telestream has provided NASCAR this season has enabled our officials to perform their jobs in an even more efficient and time-sensitive manner,” said Robin Pemberton, NASCAR Vice President of Competition. “Having instant access to that many camera angles featuring such high-quality video has been a terrific addition to our race weekends.”

The race control system utilizes high-speed StorNext File System software from Quantum to provide simultaneous access of video content, including the ability to rewind and read while continuing to write from 18 HD cameras. CineSys provided on-site infrastructure, architecture, installation, and technical assistance.

”We are pleased to have been selected by Telestream to participate in this important project, and it is especially gratifying to be recognized in this prestigious award. StorNext’s robust file sharing software is fine-tuned to address the high-performance streaming needs that accompany higher resolution video. Because of our collaboration, these combined technologies are greatly improving the accuracy of race monitoring and enhancing the experience for millions of NASCAR fans,” said Janae Stow Lee, senior vice president, File System and Archive Product Group at Quantum.

The award was presented at the IBC2012 Awards Ceremony on Sunday evening, September 9 at the RAI in Amsterdam. IBC is the premier annual event for professionals engaged in the creation, management and delivery of entertainment and news content worldwide. The Innovation Awards recognize collaboration and those who push the boundaries. Telestream is exhibiting at IBC in stand 7.D16, and Quantum is exhibiting in stand 7.G30.
