Format diversity 
SABA Playout is a system for playback of news and TV programs with broadcast quality and by employing software tools it supports all available video formats. In this system, besides professional broadcast file formats, low resolutions such as videos recorded by mobile phones can also be played and also any new video format can be played without changes in the hardware. SABA Video Playout system automatically modifies the output resolution according to broadcast standards. Thus HD videos can be played beside SDs, simultaneously.
