For Harris Broadcast Gear
H

arris Broadcast has supplied a
range of integrated broadcast
solutions to international
distributor and service provider,
Gencom Technology Ltd, for the
implementation of a multi-channel
playout facility at Fiji TV.
The solution at the leading
television broadcaster in Fiji and
the Pacific region encompasses the
playout operation for 25 channels
and also serves SKY Pacific, the
Pacific’s premium direct-to-home
(DTH) satellite pay TV service.
Gencom Technology designed
and built the new solution in
Auckland, New Zealand.
At the heart of the new facility is
a Harris Broadcast Platinum router
with integrated HView SX Pro
multiviewers.
This, alongside various 6800+
modular processing systems,
ensures reliable signal processing

FRA: Euro Media Group has
acquired the technical resources of
Alfacam, a Belgian firm specialising
in the recording and broadcasting
o f i m a g e s i n t e r n a t i o n a l l y.
Euro Media Group CEO Thierry
Drilhon said that the acquisition
of the technical resources would
support long-term growth.
With this strategic acquisition, Euro
Media Group is reinforcing its presence
in wireless technologies & services
(RF) which are critical for major events.
The additional capacity, said
Euro Media Group, will increase its
footprint in Europe while expanding
its operations in emerging countries
such as Brazil.

Fuji TV’s playout facility runs 25 channels

and monitoring across the entire
Fiji TV facility.
The facility, now on-air, also
incorporates a range of Harris

Broadcast master control graphics
and production solutions to enhance
the on-air look across all channels.

DigitalFilm Tree Enlarges With Facilis TerraBlock
F

acilis TerraBlock has provided a
shared storage solution for two
ABC Studios series in Burbank, CA
as part of a new workflow process
that provides an integrated remote
post set up that includes editorial,
online, titling, colour, dailies and
VFX.
Designed by post-production,
consulting and software
development company DigitalFilm
Tree (DFT), the pipeline was originally
outfitted with TerraBlock and it
has already proven successful in
facilitating the workflow on the ABC
series ‘Mistresses’ and ‘Perception.’
With support for 4TB drives,
TerraBlock fits 96 terabytes into
a single 5RU, 24-drive chassis –

Digital Film Tree

providing all of the bandwidth
and storage necessary for a
full show season, while also
reducing the power consumption
and heat emission from that of a
traditional SAN.
This robust and compact design

allows post-production teams to
easily complete on-set dailies. Once
filming is wrapped, hard drives with
RAW Apple ProRes 444 footage are
loaded into the TerraBlock for the
dailies to be processed.
Concurrently, an editing team
is able to cut multiple streams
of Avid DNxHD Mbit/s36 offline
from the SAN.
There is always a link to the RAW
material housed on the TerraBlock,
so the post-production team can
easily lock a cut by reconnecting
to the online ProRes 444 material
rather than having to take the
material from LTO or the postproduction facility’s SAN.

AUS / GBR: Pilat Media’s IBMS
solution has been selected for
Foxtel Go, a portable app offered
by Australian pay-TV provider Foxtel.
Foxtel Go, enables Foxtel
subscribers to choose from
some of Australia’s most popular
channels and watch their
favourite shows anywhere and
anytime on both Wi-Fi and 3G.
Foxtel launched Foxtel Go last
November following the success of
its 2012 London Games app.
