    [EN] Microsoft targets broadcasters with the new studio-grade Skype TX

    With Skype TX, Microsoft is looking to help broadcasters transform their existing Skype-enabled video feeds into higher-quality broadcasts. This is a big move for sure, though it’s perhaps not all that surprising given the extent to which Skype is already used for live video in news broadcasts.

    Skype TX is basically designed with pros in mind, with support for the HD-SDI formats (a broadcast standard), while video and audio will be free from notifications, ads and other pop-ups. Skype TX will also manage aspect ratio mismatches automatically, and it can handle multiple Skype calls simultaneously on a single interface.

    Skype Delivers a New Solution for Broadcasters

    04/07/2014 in Big Blog by Angie Hill

    Today, we’re excited to announce a new solution for broadcasters from Skype, available in the coming year. This improved offering is a result of Skype’s recent acquisition of our long-time broadcast partner Cat and Mouse. We’ve built on the existing Cat and Mouse technology to deliver a high quality hardware and software Skype integration direct into a studio environment.

    Skype TX is studio grade software that delivers high quality audio and video output to seamlessly connect broadcast and media productions with people around the world.

    Skype TX is part of the Skype in Media offering, which was created to inspire and enable a new generation of media moments. Now broadcasters can use the new Skype TX to develop new formats and creative concepts for live, video on demand and other digital content – creating even more engaging moments. The website showcases examples of how Skype has been used in media to enhance the broadcast experience. Here, broadcasters can also download brand assets to use in their productions. All of this combined with the launch of Skype TX, means we now offer a complete suite of tools for broadcasters to enrich the viewer’s experience.
