IBC 2015: Pebble Beach Systems has announced the launch of a new software-defined virtualised IP channel system, Orca.

Orca is a virtualised IP-enabled software-defined integrated channel which runs on a virtualised platform.

The system optimises a software-only implementation of the company’s Dolphin platform to run in a private cloud with IP inputs and outputs.

Orca provides the same functionality in a pure software environment as was previously handled by discrete video server, graphics and subtitling systems.

As with Pebble Beach’s Dolphin, Orca software-defined channels can be configured to meet the requirements of each service. 

An orchestration layer also allows deployment against pre-configured templates, so that channels can be launched and integrated into a Pebble Beach Marina system.

A demo at Pebble Beach’s IBC stand showcased the company’s Marina automation solution controlling a range of virtualised channel types hosted on the Orca virtualised IP channel solution, and on their partner Harmonic’s Electra X VM platform.
