Imagine Communications debuts Versio 3.0

Imagine Communications will use IBC to highlight Versio 3.0, the latest release of the company’s integrated channel playout solution.

Providing all playout functions and features in software, Versio 3.0 is 100% software-based, supports premises-based COTS servers to cloud-based virtual machines, including a traditional integrated playout appliance model and supports baseband, IP-only, baseband and IP, and cloud (VersioCloud) deployment models. It also supports software-only graphics with 2x2D DVE, internal and external automation, integration with the Nexio Farad SAN solution, as well as third-party SANs and industry standard NAS offerings, and any-to-any transport, including compressed or uncompressed IP (2022-6) and SDI/baseband.

The 3.0 release of Versio also marks the introduction of the Versio MCS, an optional touchscreen-based master control surface.  The Versio MCS feature brings new efficiencies to master control, enabling operators to manage Versio’s advanced switching, graphics and automation capabilities with a simple touch of a button in a single or multichannel environment. The new control surface also enables advanced levels of user interface customization. Media companies can now optimize their control surfaces for specific requirements and use cases, according to the company.

Imagine has also unveiled the line-up for ImagineLIVE, a week-long series of presentations and interactive discussions. Guest contributors include Microsoft, Cisco, HP and IBM.
