Snell Solutions Drive HD Webcasts
Of Norwegian Parliament Sessions
T

he Nor wegian Parliament,
Stortinget, has chosen a Snell
Kahuna 360 Compact multi-format
production switcher and a Snell
Sirius 830 large-scale router with
Advanced Hybrid Processing (AHP)
for the final phase of its migration
to HD operations. Supplied and
integrated by Video 4 AS and
Megahertz Broadcast Systems, the
Kahuna 360 Compact and Sirius
830 enable live 1080p coverage of
all Parliament sessions.
"The production switcher and
router are the workhorses in any
high-output broadcast facility, and
we knew we'd need to choose these
systems carefully for the design of
our new HD studio," said Thomas
Andresen, Advisor, Stortinget. "With
the Snell Kahuna 360 Compact and
Sirius 830, we chose wisely indeed.
In addition to uncompromised
broadcast quality and high reliability,
both systems provide the ease of
use that Snell is known for. This
was especially important since we

needed to enable freelancers from
NRK to come in and use the systems
without any significant training."
From its new HD production
studio within the Parliament
complex in Oslo, Stortinget streams
all live sessions from parliamentary
chambers and hearing rooms to
its website and also offers a video
library of pre-recorded sessions for
viewing on demand. In a spacesaving 6U mainframe, the Kahuna
360 Compact acts as a shared
switcher to re-distribute resources
across Stortinget's four control
rooms from a single mainframe.
Using Snell's unique Make M/E
technology, operators are able to
custom-build an M/E feature set to
match the production requirements
of each control room, with a 2 M/E
Compact Kahuna control panel and
three Kahuna micropanels providing
the control surfaces.
Snell's Sirius 830 router gives
Stortinget up to 288x288 inputs and
outputs in a compact 16U frame

size, with the ability
to add an additional
144 independently
controllable outputs for
connection to Snell or
third-party multiviewer
solutions. Stortinget has
chosen Virtual Studio
Manager from LSB for
overall system control
and full integration with
the Sirius 830 allows VSM
to control both its routing and
processing functions.
The Sirius 830 provides
embedding and de-embedding
and applies its AHP functionality on
every input and output. Integrating
multiple channels of processing
modules into a single chassis,
something that would previously
have consumed several bays of
modular equipment, minimises the
need for external glue and saves on
space, costs, power and cabling.
"According to Norwegian law,
Stortinget is required to make a

Snell's Kahuna 360 Compact multiformat production switcher

high-quality recording of every word
of every public debate, and then
make that video available to citizens
- so the technology that went into the
new HD facility had to be absolutely
bulletproof," said Robert Rowe,
Snell's chief technology officer. "This
is the perfect environment for our
Kahuna 360 and Sirius 800 product
lines, both of which provide the high
degree of integration, reliability, and
versatility the Stortinget broadcast
operation needs to meet its
legislative mandate."
