Bridge Technologies is supporting Densitron’s development of a new four-unit, rack-mountable Multiviewer+ system, based on Densitron’s Intelligent Display System (IDS) solution. 


Densitron: The system is based on Densitron’s Intelligent Display System 

The new Multiviewer+ incorporates a 19in Densitron UReady 4RU touchscreen monitor and integrates the full functionality of Bridge Technologies’ VB440 monitoring probes.

The Multiviewer+ can be used to control multiple third-party systems for applications such as broadcast lighting, camera positioning and signal routing. The IDS Core software enables flexible control, while Bridge Technologies’ VB440 IP probe allows for the monitoring and analysis of high bit-rate broadcast media traffic.

Built to comply with the requirements of SMPTE ST-2110 and ST-2022-6, the VB440 IP probe allows production teams to continuously survey all layers of media transportation on an IP network and facilitate quick resolution of potential problems.

Integrated into the Multiviewer+ via the Widglets API, the VB440 allows the system to display two, three or four comfort monitoring screens in conjunction with a range of various monitoring elements, including waveform data or any configuration of data display required by the user.

Speaking of the natural congruence of Multiviewer+ with VB440 monitoring capabilities, Simon Jones, CEO of Densitron, said: “As pandemic conditions continue and mean smaller deployments for studio-based and outside broadcast projects, we believe that this very powerful, compact and easy-to-use solution will resonate with production teams everywhere. From the start of our discussions, it was clear that the combination of Densitron and Bridge Technologies’ R&D could deliver an amazing end-result, with the VB440 providing the opportunity to give broadcasters a wealth of data-driven insight. Combine this with the robust UReady monitor and the IDS solution, and you have a fully scalable and highly intuitive solution for today’s fast-moving broadcast and production sectors.”

Expanding on this idea, chairman for Bridge Technologies Simen Frostad said: “The way that Densitron have integrated our Widglets API technology into their IDS solution and UReady touchscreen is fantastic and demonstrates such a keen understanding of what kind of information production engineers need, how they need it presented to them and how they can work with it most efficiently.

“Indeed, we can speak to that from personal experience – we use Densitron products throughout our IP-based studio in Oslo, where we produce our weekly Bridge Show, and their clear, slick and intuitive workflows make life so much easier.”
