TRULY FLEXIBLE

Our software was designed with flexibility and scalability in mind. All processing functions are dynamically instantiated and can be created and deleted on demand just as you have come to expect in a hybrid-cloud environment.

ON DEMAND

Create or delete processing functions quickly and easily according to the production needs you have at that time

WIDE VARIETY

We offer a wide variety of audio, video, and metadata processing functions for professional live broadcast

AGILE

We believe in fast and iterative software development in close cooperation with our clients and partners

TRUSTED

Our software is used daily for Tier 1 productions around the world

BLADE//runner

BLADE//runner is a software suite of live broadcast production apps which provide a wide variety of tools for professional productions. Designed with a highly flexible and modular core allowing for the creation and deletion of resources and functions on-the-fly. BLADE//runner is controllable by an open API as well as through NMOS IS-04/-05 and is designed for the modern broadcast facility, where flexibility and scalability are essential.

API FIRST

At arkona we believe in open standards and an API first approach. API First allows for a high degree of flexibility where user specific workflows are at the center, and where an operator is no longer limited by static and proprietary "standard" operational models. We have built an extensive and powerful API which let's you control ALL features of our software through WebSocket or NMOS, putting YOU in charge.


at300 edge compute processor

Designed for hybrid-cloud environments where compute heavy uncompressed 4K workflows are most efficiently processed at the edge, the AT300 is arkona's edge compute platform. 

Powered with Intel S10MX FPGAs and with dual non-blocking 100GE interfaces, it packs a tremendous amount of compute power into a compact format while still being 40% more power efficient than the previous generation.

Highest density 4K/HDR

With its dual non-blocking native 100GE interfaces, the AT300 provides the highest density 4K/HDR solution on the market with up to 85 UHD instances per RU

12 x faster performance

Designed with 300 GBps HBM2 memory the AT300 is the industry's first compute platform with High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) that provides up to 12 x more memory bandwidth compared to DDR4 RAM

Seamless integration
Fits directly into existing frames and rear-plates allowing for easy upgrade and expansion
Software defined
Easily interchangeable software apps that are fully controllable through our modern and open WebSocket API or through AMWA NMOS IS-04 and IS-05
