SAPEC ready for the future of broadcasting with SMPTE 2110 IP-enabled UHD solutions at NAB 2024

  • SAPEC will demonstrate the latest technological evolutions of its LAGUNA, SIVAC-ONE and GREDOS II equipment at booth W3930 in the West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, as well as showcase solutions from its partners The CornerCam, Video-MOS, and Acromove.
  • SMPTE 2110 makes its way into the European manufacturer’s decoders, demonstrating SAPEC’s ability to adapt to new IP and hybrid workflows.
  • The RIST protocol makes its debut in SAPEC solutions, offering users of devices such as LAGUNA new ways to transport content over public networks.

Madrid, April 4, 2024 – SAPEC will once again participate in NAB 2024, the world’s leading trade show for broadcast, entertainment, and new media. From April 14 to 17, SAPEC will demonstrate how its encoding and decoding solutions are ready to meet current and future challenges in the industry, including UHD, IP, SMPTE 2110, or transport over public networks.
Booth W3930, located in the West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, will host a large delegation of the SAPEC team, which continues to work tirelessly to evolve technologically with the market and adapt to its latest needs. Public network distribution, SMPTE 2110 or UHD workflows are consolidated in the most important Broadcasters in the world, and the European manufacturer’s solutions will prove to be ready to meet each new challenge of these highly challenging scenarios.
The LAGUNA, SIVAC-ONE and GREDOS II product ranges (which will feature major innovations) will be the highlights of a showcase where visitors will be able to discover their latest developments and performance through demos run in real time. Additionally, SAPEC will showcase the solutions of Video-MOS and Acromove, special partners for this American adventure, as well as its exclusive developments such as The CornerCam.
LAGUNA: committed to SMPTE 2110 and RIST
The multichannel UHD/HD/SD LAGUNA platform, compatible with HEVC, H.264 and MPEG-2 standards, previews its future at NAB 2024 and consolidates its position as an ecosystem ready to adapt to new industry standards.
Available in four different versions, SINGLE (single channel), DUAL (two channels), QUAD (four channels) and OCTAL (eight channels), LAGUNA has been designed to operate in all types of television applications: multichannel video contribution, DTT distribution, bidirectional applications (encoding and decoding in the same unit), transport over public IP networks or UP/DOWN conversions when operating as an encoder or decoder.
This highly versatile, low-latency solution for signal contribution and distribution is now equipped with the SMPTE 2110 interface, which makes the platform compatible with the set of standards defined by the SMPTE itself for sending and receiving IP assets. In this way, SAPEC paves the way to new 100% IP and hybrid environments, a goal of the most ambitious Broadcasters and a present for players who are already adapting their infrastructures and processes.
LAGUNA will also debut at NAB 2024 its compatibility with RIST, a protocol promoted by Video Service Forum for transporting content over public networks. RIST offers advantages such as Multicast support, maximum security encryption systems such as PSK (Pre-Shared Key) or DTLS (Datagram Transport Layer Security); bonding capabilities; packet correction in case of loss that can reach up to 45% of the content, and its open and standardized nature as an open protocol without a proprietary company behind it.
In addition to these important new features, SAPEC will demonstrate the full power and versatility of LAGUNA through a real-time demo in which attendees will be able to discover some of its latest enhancements: UHD license for QUAD (LMP4000) and OCTAL (LMP8000) models; thumbnail display for all models; the possibility of performing analysis and monitoring functions through the ETR-290 specification, or the ability to use LAGUNA as gateways: if the system receives an SRT signal, for example, it will be possible to forward the same signal simultaneously to the decoding of a SMPTE 2022 network and vice versa.
SIVAC-ONE, stellar return to NAB 2024 with new 12G interface
The modular SIVAC-ONE platform, tested in highly demanding environments such as the Ultra High Definition broadcasting of the last World Cup in Qatar through the Spanish DTT, returns ready to face new challenges.
With ultra-low latency FPGA-based encoding and decoding (below 170 ms glass-to-glass), the system will demonstrate at the Las Vegas show its proficiency in handling UHD/3G/HD signals with WCG and HDR signaling for remote contribution based on HEVC/H.265 to handle resolutions up to 2160p50/60 4K UHD.
SIVAC-ONE will exhibit at NAB 2024 with a new 12G interface, both electrical and optical, which enables its integration in high-demand UHD environments and positions it as a preferred choice for signal management for the next major global sporting event in the summer of 2024.
GREDOS II and the revolutionary THE CORNERCAM
The LAGUNA and SIVAC-ONE platforms will be joined at NAB 2024 by two other SAPEC in-house developments: the H.264/MPEG-2 family of encoders with integrated GREDOS II modulator and the revolutionary THE CORNERCAM system.
The H.264/MPEG-2 family of encoders with integrated GREDOS II modulator supports up to two video channels (SD/HD) and audio channels simultaneously with MPEG-1/AAC/Dolby AC3and EAC3 compression and, optionally, HEVC, both 4:2:0 and 4:2:2:2 profiles. The system can integrate two types of modulator: Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) with support for the American standard ATSC or ISDB-TB, or a satellite modulator (DVB-S/S2/S2x).
The SAPEC solution features up to two video inputs (SDI / HD-SDI) or one 3G-SDI input, whose signals can be multiplexed to generate an MPTS with both programs, and up to 16 channels of embedded mono audio (8 stereo pairs) on each video channel. Ready to configure each program as Digital TV, Digital Radio or 1-Seg (only for the ISDB-Tb option), GREDOS II features RF DTT or Satellite outputs, two IP outputs with SMPTE2022 1/2/7 support with optional SRT/RIST, and an ASI option. The solution also stands out for its logo insertion capability in each video source; its management through a web browser, access through which you can check the thumbnails of each video input; front display, or SNMP alarm management.
In addition, The CornerCam’s revolutionary corner flag camera system, a solution developed by SAPEC, will be shown for the first time at NAB. This system aims to replace the classic soccer corner flags with a system that includes two cameras (one lower and one upper) with horizontal remote control and HD 1080i capabilities. The cameras, connected to the mobile units via fiber optics, are remotely controllable by a joystick system and a pre-selection and multi-screen system created by SAPEC itself.
This solution, which has already been tested in collaboration with the RFEF in top-level matches, is also compatible with Video Assistant Referee duties, as its position allows for the review of possible ball exits at the limits of the pitch.
Demos together with Video-MOS and Acromove
Beyond offering real-time demonstrations of the capabilities of LAGUNA, SIVAC-ONE and GREDOS II, SAPEC will demonstrate the solutions of two of its partners: Video-MOS ( and Acromove (
Video-Mos is a developer focused on the creation of solutions and services for quality control of audiovisual content using the MOS parameter and AI capabilities. The company specializes in customizing its systems according to each client’s requirements, so it is able to designate multiple parameters for all types of live and archive content.
The Acromove firm specializes in offering private 5G network solutions for transporting broadcast signals with high bandwidth and low latency, additionally offering processing and storage capacity with cloud connectivity. To demonstrate the efficiency of this system, the SAPEC booth at NAB 2024 will feature a private 5G network that will be used to transport a 4K signal encoded with SIVAC-ONE hardware, which will subsequently be decoded in a LAGUNA device.
A large delegation of the SAPEC team will be present at booth W3930 to demonstrate how the Spanish manufacturer’s platforms continue to improve to meet the major challenges of the Broadcast industry today, as well as those that are yet to come.


SAPEC is a company based in Spain with offices in Mexico, which designs, develops and manufactures reliable video contribution and distribution solutions for highly demanding broadcast and telecommunications environments.

Its solutions allow the transport of audiovisual content with professional quality in real time and without limitations either through satellite, fiber optics, IP, radio links…
