What can you see at our stand?

Integrate your TV channel into the web.


With the integrated social network uploader and the platform adapted file transcoder you can easily get your content to the web. DiSA Transcoder as part of the DiSA Broadcast Suite is designed to fit seamlessly into your workflow. Whether you need a mobile format for handheld devices, Flash for your online media library or H.264 based content for your Smart TV features, everything is done automatically. The powerful and reliable coding engine allows you to concatenate files and optionally add „channel brandings". Besides that you can create batch transcoding jobs on a single engine or with multiple engines sharing the jobs. The DiSA Transcoder operates based on profiles – either in watch folder mode or controlled by DiSA user applications. In combination with the Inbox it works fully automated in the background.


Integrate the web into your TV channel.


Upgrade your channel to a Smart TV channel! With the HMS HbbTV® playout you can integrate web sites into your TV signal. With the possibility to show web sites on a TV set, customers have many new opportunities. Broadcasters must keep that pace and integrate the web into their TV signal. With the HMS playout you are well prepared for that. The digital playout integrates web site URLs into the DVB stream, which allows you to send out additional information to the viewers. For each show you can transmit individual URLs, giving you the opportunity to provide show-based information in CE-HTML. All HbbTV® features can be managed easily within the integrated MAM.


Get a TV channel for rent!


Use the HMS Managed Service to start up a new channel with almost no initial cost and no risk. There are various applications the HMS Managed Service can be used for. In general, any back end of an HMS product may be provided as a service. That includes database servers, playout servers, recording servers, streaming servers, or any other server for high-performance tasks such as transcoding. Using the HMS Managed Service, you save the initial costs for buying server hardware and save time for hardware delivers. Our systems are ready to be used. You have the flexibility to upgrade or change the services you ordered, which allows you to quickly adapt to changed requirements.


how you can save substantial operational costs compared to other Broadcast Automations.

With the DiSA Broadcast Automation Suite you can easily manage large numbers of distributed playout sites. Its software architecture is designed for maximum savings of running costs for connecting remote playout stations. It can use regular internet connections for updating its rundown and downloading media files. The playout server needs neither a static IP nor a VPN. Our new communication technology reduces the load of the central server and increases security. With the MD5 check sum we identify transmission errors as well as file revisions and immediately reinitialize the transmission. Connection outages are no problem, either. The playout server only needs a connection when refreshing the rundown and copying new files.

You search for a playout solution for HotelTV, public transport or Digital Signage? Let our booth staff illustrate how much potential for savings you have with your infrastructure.


the power of our 2 RU multichannel DVB Playout with EPG and HbbTV®.


The DiSA Playout Server is the all-in-one 2 RU server, including an EAS crawl generator for Harris,TFT and DASDEC decoders. It can render animated channel graphics, crawls or picture-in-picture in real-time, even with alpha and color masks or blur effects. Hence you can crop your secondary video toany shape (e.g. with rounded corners) or set behindmilk glass. Transitions can also contain moving effects.

Output interface is SDI or HD-SDI. The DVB extension module additionally creates a DVB compliant Transport Stream (via IP or ASI).


our MacMini based full HD Playout with live crawls and channel graphics

We can even be smaller. Our fan-less MacMini-based playout server is a fully loaded HD playout at only 2.4 lb. No matter if rendering channel graphics or crawls in real-time. The video quality is amazing. Convince yourself at our booth!


the versatility of the DiSA MAM with various local, regional and national ad capabilities.


DiSA's Media Asset Management is capable of handling numerous different playout sites. These can conveniently be grouped to common markets or assigned to individual markets. Ads can be organized based on this assignment. Each site directly reports played ads via as-run-logs. Hence you can easily manage ad markets and check actually played ads.


how easy DiSA can interoperate with 3rd party products.

The key strength of the DiSA is its interoperability. Its XML API is already widely supported by different broadcast companies. Using the API you can control 100% all functions of the DiSA. It is mainly used for scheduling, retrieving metadata, exporting or importing EPG data, but it is also used as an intermediate translator interface for 3rd party CMS.

Successful integrations include (but are not limited to): Harris®, BroadView®, Annova, Step2e, Gracenote, 3points, Sohard, Previon, BarcoNet, TV Anytime and Pebble Beach.
