Masstech - MAM For Leading Sports Channels
World Sport Group, one of the largest producers, distributors and suppliers of sports programming in Asia, and B4U India have appointed Masstech to provide digital archiving for all their media content. Masstech, a leading provider of streamlined media asset management (MAM) solutions, penetrates the sports content arena with new global installations. Masstech will implement the Emerald v7.5LE solution at World Sport Group’s Singapore facility. Emerald will archive more than 10 years of Asian football and golf footage, and magazine shows, which is conservatively estimated at more than 10,000 hours of programming. The company features almost 600 sport event days and more than 5000 hours of sports programming annually, across more than 30 countries in the region. Its television division manages the live on-ground production of some of the region’s top sporting events and ratings leaders including the AFC Asian Cup, AFC Champions League, 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil – Asian Qualifying Rounds, FIFA Club World Cup, Barclays Singapore Open and Emirates Australian Open for its global network of broadcast, broadband and mobile partners. The Emerald v7.5LE solution is an upgrade of a digital linear tape (DLT) based solution. Content that comes in via tape or satellite is ingested into XSAN via FCP/MR in Apple ProRes 422. The ingested clip will remain in XSAN for edits. Once the edits are completed and no more repurposing is required for the clips, they will be purged and archived by Emerald. The production department can search for content, preview a proxy and restore or partial file restore back to XSAN. James Leow, Head of Digital Media at World Sport Group said: “With Emerald we can achieve so much more. Masstech’s Emerald provides cost-effective digital archiving and automates content archiving from our FCP editing systems as well as central storage. LTO technology enables us to archive more content with less media. This upgrade allows us to store our sports content cost-effectively as we continue to produce thousands of hours of sports programming.” first import metadata into Emerald and then archive mxf content from an FCP system. The mxf content will be linked with metadata already available on Emerald system. B4U’s current workflow involves archiving content on video tapes. The content is then ingested from tapes and the files uploaded to the playout server. Emerald eliminates the timeconsuming process of having to re-ingest the same content again. Digital files can be stored on LTO5 tapes along with metadata and recall as and when required. Once Emerald is installed, one important capability is that metadata can be imported first and then re-linked with the assets later when content is archived. Emerald also enables B4U to associate pac files with archived mxf and WM9 content so that when they edit the segment for re-telecast, they can preview sub-titles while editing the segment. Brad Redwood, Vice President for International Sales & Marketing said: “We’ve had an incredible response to Emerald. Sports and News organisations alike are adopting Emerald as their mini-MAM solution of choice. With no hidden costs, media companies around the world have realised the value and affordability of Emerald for digital archiving and content management.”

Packaged with rich built-in features offering mini MAM capabilities for LTO tape archiving, high quality speed (HQS) transcoding and content management on one common platform. Supporting up to two LTO-5 tape drives with any size robotic tape library from a wide range of manufacturers like Spectra, and IBM and others. In addition Emerald has fee-free unlimited disk and tape storage with an unlimited number of offline externalised LTO cartridges, effectively providing an infinite archive capacity. As World Sport Group’s storage requirements grow, Emerald can be easily upgraded to Masstech’s Topaz system for multi-server scalability and streamlined MAM. ■

Emerald Adoption
Emerald is gaining market share around the world as the World Sport Group installation will be followed closely by another installation at B4U, an Indian satellite channel. B4U were looking for a MAM system which would allow them to

Danmon Migrates Kanal 75 To File-Based HD
Danmon Systems Group recently completed a full migration to file-based HD production for Scandinavian sports broadcaster Kanal 75. Based at the Solvalla stadium in Stockholm, Kanal 75 is a subsidiary of AB Trav och Galopp, the authorised betting company for trotting and thoroughbred horseracing in Sweden. “We record around 1,300 Swedish and international horseracing events each year, local and international, and transmit more than 100 hours of original television every week,” said Kanal 75’s Director of Technology Johan Eriksson. “Danmon Systems Group designed and installed the original technical facilities at our Solvalla headquarters and partnered with us on this new project. Progressing to file-based high-definition enables us to deliver images that look fantastic even on very large publicvenue video display screens. You feel like you are actually attending the live event.” Kanal 75’s Assistant Technical Director Robert Svensson, said: “An EVS IPDirector suite is being used for ingest scheduling, clipping, streaming, production content management and playout control. IPDirector also handles the logging of races and delivery to our web distribution platform, linked to ATG’s betting data feed. Content recorded and logged on the EVS production system is transferred to a shared storage and checked in to the Interplay for archiving. “Kanal 75 is an outstandingly efficient network and has used server-based technology from the outset,” states Danmon Systems Group’s Deputy Managing Director

Kanal75 Master Control Room

Peter Thomsen. “This is the latest phase in a large project which includes expanded routing and monitoring. We also integrated a media asset management system from Avid plus a file-based archive to form a cohesive infrastructure. “The new system makes optimal use of metadata, allowing

production teams to search, browse and retrieve material without the limitations inherent in hybrid and discrete-media libraries. “The transition to 1080-line content acquisition and postproduction will greatly enhance the viewing experience.” ■
