AJA gear from AJA HELO to FS1 converter for local production

Real-time streaming has become an integral part of the communication between the city of Santa Barbara and its residents, thanks in part to the integration of AJA technology into the city’s real-time streaming infrastructure.

City TV Production streams and records all Santa Barbara City Council meetings and other programs to YouTube, where community members can watch live or on-demand. Content was captured using 12 HD cameras in three HD meeting rooms, which were connected to the main control room by optical fiber and Cat5e cables. Audio and video feeds are sent from each room through the production switcher to create the main feed, which is then sent through the router to one of the three AJA HELO H.264 streaming devices.

City TV also uses AJA U-TAP SDI and connects to a local computer via USB to ensure a clear signal for adding virtual participants through applications such as GoTo Meeting or Zoom. Then, the received video feed will be sent through AJA HELO to be streamed to YouTube in real time. The AJA Ki Pro rack recorder is also used to back up the Apple ProRes codec on the AJA KiStor drive.

Other AJA products used as part of the infrastructure include AJA micro converters that support conversion between SDI and HDMI devices, and AJA FS1 converters/frame synchronizers to help convert analog component materials to HD-SDI for import into production In the system.

AJA HELO is also part of the City TV live streaming flight package, which includes three HD cameras, a switcher, a router and an AJA HELO for off-site production.

The urban television infrastructure was established by Triton Technology Solutions.
