Cobalt Joins
TICO Alliance
USA: Cobalt Digital has joined the
TICO Alliance.
Using the TICO compression and
video-over-IP standards, the group
enables the industry to seamlessly
update existing SDI-based workflows to IP and UHDTV 4K.
Membership in the Alliance gives
Cobalt access to the TICO technology, and in turn Cobalt can quickly
integrate TICO into its high-density
FPGA-based hardware platforms.
Cobalt TICO solutions will be available as openGear modular cards
and as units in Cobalt's exclusive
BBG-1000 Series of standalone
systems.

Rogers Selects SAM For
4K Rollout
R

ogers Media has selected SAM
to provide a range of leading
technology for its 4K and HDR
broadcasting services.
The programming package to be
delivered includes over 100 live sports
events, including every Toronto Blue
Jays baseball home games and more
than 20 NHL games.
The
investment
follows
on
from Rogers CEO Guy Lawrence's
announcement last year about
the company's 4K intentions and
commitment to the market.
At the heart of the installation is
a Kahuna 9600 switcher - featuring
a 16 input A/B cut bus - for the MCR
alongside Morpheus automation and

ICE CiaB units. Rogers
Media has also installed
main and backup 4K
sQ servers in addition
to a range of SAM
infrastructure products.
Following a period of
comprehensive market
research and technical
trials
to
evaluate
playout options, Rogers
then carried out proofof-concept testing in
Canada.
The first live test, a 4K broadcast of
a regional hockey game, took place in
December.
SAM's technology was also deployed

Rogers has deployed a SAM Kahuna 9600

for coverage of Sportsnet's joint
venture with BT Sport and the NBA to
cover the Raptors vs. Orlando Magic
game in January live in 4K from The O2
Arena in London.

Abracadabra Relies On FOR-A Magic

C

alifornia-based
Abracadabra
Presentation Graphics has chosen
FOR-A's new HVS-2000 unit.
The new switcher's first big test
was when Abracadabra worked with
entertainment technology company,
FNTech, for production of a cloud
computing conference held
recently in Tokyo.
"Both the HVS-2000 and
HVS-110 switchers have
been great out-of-the-box
solutions for the work
that we do," said Colin
Tanji, Staff Producer and
Director,
Abracadabra
Presentation
Graphics.
"To be as cost effective
as possible, we usually
source the majority of
our equipment from local

vendors. However, when it comes
to switchers, we insist on bringing
our FOR-A gear with us. That's how
confident we are that FOR-A provides
the best switchers on the market to get
the job done right."
Cloud
computing
users
and

programmers from around the world
attended the popular cloud computing
summit.
Abracadabra used the HVS-2000
video switcher to switch and feed the
event's live webcast from the keynote
presentations, feed video from the
cameras to the main
presentation
switcher
for use on the main
presentation screens, and
provide video content
to the delay screens
and all overflow video
areas during the keynote
presentations.

Abracadabra opted
for another FOR-A
switcher, the
HVS-2000
