Renewed Vision Centralizes Playback To A Single Workstation

Renewed Vision’s multi-screen media server was used for the live 2018 NFL Draft broadcast earlier this year. PVP 3.2 offers the ability to synchronize SDI feeds across multiple outputs, while simplifying how users manage effects and transitions in dynamic live productions.

Renewed Vision has announced a new version of its ProVideoPlayer3 (PVP3) multi-screen media server, video processor and screen control software for live production environments. Now available for download at the company’s website, the PVP 3.2 release centralizes playback functions to a single workstation, simplifying live production operations for large broadcast and professional production projects. The software also adds new synchronization, control and management functions.

The latest version retains all enhancements previously introduced in the PVP 3.1 release, including support for the industry-standard DMX512-A lighting control protocol and an integrated HTTP control server for improved data management and integration. PVP 3.2 amplifies the overall value proposition for customers with the ability to synchronize SDI feeds across multiple outputs, while simplifying how users manage effects and transitions in dynamic live productions.

Brad Weston, President, Renewed Vision, said it is now possible to play back and frame-synchronize multiple 1080p60 or 4K SDI outputs from one machine.

“We’ve already seen PVP 3.2 projects with [a dozen] 1080p60 outputs and a 4K output off of the same single machine,” he said.

PVP 3.2 also strengthens its effectiveness for live productions by integrating network triggering for backup instances. This effectively adds a redundancy layer with seamless backup protection while in midst of a big event. This means that when the unforeseen problem occurs, users can retain the efficiency of single-machine operation while also achieving redundancy through network triggering that seamlessly triggers backup machines throughout the event.

While centralizing operations to a single machine is the main value proposition of PVP 3.2, Renewed Vision has also responded to rental market requests to simplify license use across different workstations. The latest release allows users to transfer licenses between machines using a USB dongle without online activation and deactivation. This is especially useful for PVP3 customers working in rental and touring environments as it puts customers in control of their own license management.

PVP 3.2 lets users design and deliver rich visual experiences spanning multiple interactive, resolution-independent displays. The new playback, control and stability benefits of PVP 3.2 complement the extensive communications and control advances introduced in PVP 3.1; as well as other foundational features of PVP. These include direct SDI outputs, interactive screen control functionality, an enhanced low-latency video playout engine, and the integration of NewTek’s Network Device Interface (NDI) technology for live, IP-based production workflows.
