From Oz To You: HD/SD Integration From ONDA


Melbourne, Australia-based Bluefish444, the manufacturer of 4K/2K/HD/SD SDI video cards, has completed its integration with ONDA Automation from global software development company Media-Alliance, in use by television production and media management for news, sports, program production and archiving.

ONDA is a scheduling and automation playout suite developed for broadcasters.

Playout automation and the scheduler share the same database, assisting in providing access to data and simultaneous edit of the playlist when scheduling changes.

ONDA manages secondary events such as GPI triggers, and basic CG or advanced 2D/3D animated CG systems such as ClassX.

ONDA can integrate with other Media-Alliance workflow solutions, such as VIVA Ingest, Borneo MAM and Witness Compliance recording.

Bluefish444 adds that it is working closely with Media-Alliance to qualify Bluefish444 hardware and software in other parts of the broadcast workflow chain supported by Media-Alliance.

Currently, Bluefish444’s freely bundled IngeSTore software is being evaluated for ingest, and Bluefish444’s integration with CasperCG is being evaluated for advanced 2D/3D animated CG.

Bluefish444 video cards are used in broadcast, feature film and post-production markets for editing, animation, compositing, color correction, restoration, digital intermediate, 3D and IPTV applications.
