  • Software/Virtualization SAM’s CiaB solutions – ICE, ICE IP, and ICE SDC can be coupled with Morpheus, Momentum and SAM’s xFile framework to form a pathway to the future. In response to the growing market demand for adjusting content duration, SAM offers Alchemist Kronos, which brings Alchemist’s unmatched image quality to the application of duration adjustment within the software based xFile series.
  • Monitoring and Workflow: SAM’s Media Biometrics bring unique capabilities to monitoring. For the first time, automated monitoring can not only understand the quality of media, but that it’s the right media. It’s now shipping in products across SAM’s portfolio including the new Sirius 800 integrated multiviewer, enabling monitoring by exception and reducing cost of operations.

Enabling the IP Transition SAM has a full range of IP solutions, highlighting how it can help customers make a risk-free transition to IP whilst still addressing their current business needs. SAM’s new IP-Edge technology takes complexity away from hybrid and pure IP rollouts. Products that are IP-Edge enabled include routers, switchers, IQ processing, servers and playout systems, and customers can buy with confidence knowing that IP-Edge systems closely follow the interoperability goals of AIMS. One of the first products launched in the IP Edge family is the IQ Edge processing solution, developed to bridge the gap to IP environments by offering a range of image and audio processing capabilities in an integrated package.
