IBC: BHV To Offer Outsourced Engineering Paradigm To Reduce Risk, Lower Development Costs
Re-branded and expanded, BHV is returning to IBC 2022 (RAI, Amsterdam, Sept. 9-12, stand 10.A20) with a new logo, look and a paradigm to provide vendors with a reliable resource for building ground-breaking product portfolios without breaking the bank.
BHV, known for its multi-award-winning designs dating back to 2002, is leveraging its own skill base to offer turnkey embedded engineering services to large brands seeking agility, or small players needing capability in video, streaming and production sectors. The team will be on Stand 10.A20 to discuss projects, explain the process and will also be demonstrating the company’s own new video, wireless and control technologies.
“We’ve been fulfilling this need for manufacturers, very successfully, for years,” explained Julian Hiorns, BHV managing director. “The pandemic, however, threw us into high gear with vendors having to deal with lockdowns, supply chain issues and labor shortages. Clients brought us their idea, or even a seed of an idea, and we turned it into a product built on the very latest, proven technologies in the industry. We absorbed the risk and worry, and they reaped the rewards of bringing cutting-edge solutions to market, some of which earned them patents. Now we’re pleased to have IBC as the perfect environment to broaden our reach and offer these services to the variety of attendees and vendors at the show.”
BHV says it “fills the growing need for outsourced innovation and development by bringing high-end electronic design and manufacturing services to a broad cross-section of vendors serving the broadcast/video production, streaming, professional AV and image processing industries.” The company offers clients a multi-phased approach to product development that includes market assessment, technology evaluation, an intelligently engineered product design and delivery of a complete turnkey solution.
Leveraging its own unique portfolio of hardware and software technologies, BHV provides embedded engineering solutions available in ASIC, FPGA and software defined delivery for video, wireless and control applications. The company also maintains a substantial inventory of components enabling completed software and hardware solutions to be integrated quickly, avoiding supply chain delays and missed deadlines.
At IBC, BHV will conduct demonstrations that illustrate the three major pillars of its product development offerings.
View — The View section will highlight BHV’s video capabilities, feature its own software-defined NDI implementation, and include demonstrations of the Company’s ASIC-based video processor silicon, capable of format and frame rate conversion, vision mixing and DVE and many picture manipulation functions all at 4K60P.
Connect — The Connect section will be dedicated to BHV’s wireless technology capabilities and include solutions for network connectivity, telemetry and remote control with support for ISAM, 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G, and UHF RFID tracking.
Control — The Control section will introduce attendees to the Human Machine Interface of Things, or the “HMI-of-Things” that refers to the creation of rich interface designs comparable to smartphone interfaces.
