Systems Integration Update
races worldwide remotely via IP,
including studio-based commentary,
news and Skype call-ins, plus on
demand training videos. IRONMAN had
already purchased some equipment
including a four-input TriCaster Mini
video switcher and analogue Mackie
audio desk before realising that a
much more elaborate infrastructure
would be needed. On a tight budget,
CP Communications enhanced this
workflow by adding an external 20 x
20 expansion router. Audio upgrades
include a Yamaha TF-1 digital audio
mixer and Unity intercom system,
with end-to-end Dante audio over
IP signal management. A new green
screen stage lets the studio news set
maximise virtual sets and graphical
backdrops.
"Live
multi-camera
IRONMAN race coverage can now be
produced remotely over IP, saving
travel and crew costs for a faster ROI,"
comments CP Communications' CEO
Kurt Heitmann. "Bonded cellular, one
of our specialties, facilitates signal
backhaul and distribution."
dB Broadcast is nearing completion
of a new broadcast centre in Cardiff
for BBC Cymru Wales. This is the first
BBC facility to use IP technology
across both its production and
broadcast operations. The project
includes broadcast infrastructure,
media production, TV studios and
TV playout. An IP core is adopted for
signal routing based on SMPTE 2110
and AMWA/NMOS. The new technology
deployed is able to adapt quickly to
new video formats, higher bandwidth
or higher video resolution. It also
offers simpler production for multiple
and new platforms, with less need for
conversion between different video or
audio formats.

upgrade for the Royal Opera House in
London. It encompasses a production

workflow, intelligent network control,
improved recording and playout
facilities, a 4K monitor wall, vision
mixer, production desks and enhanced
camera talkback. Equipment supplied
included an EVS XS-Via live production
server, Ross Carbonite Ultra UHD
vision mixer and Ross Ultrix UHD
router; Trilogy Mentor master sync/
test generator and Trilogy Gemini
talkback systems were also installed.
Control desk furniture was supplied
by Custom Consoles. Working between
opera and ballet seasons over the
summer, Megahertz had less than 10
weeks to complete installation in time
for a live relay of the ROH's production
of Mozart's opera Don Giovanni on
October 8.
PBT Adria has completed a project
for
Belgrade-based
broadcaster
Minacord Media, recently founded
by composer, songwriter, singer and
instrumentalist Zeljko Joksimovic.
Minacord Media chose PlayBox
Neo Version 19 channel-in-a-box
scheduling and playout systems to
power three new television channels:
Kazbuka, K1 and TV Doctor. All three
will be transmitted via cable and IPTV
in Serbia, and on the Go4TV mobileTV platform across Croatia, Slovenia,
Austria plus the wider European Union,
Switzerland, Canada and the USA. "Our
aim is to establish a dynamic group
of channels which, between them,
will
appeal
to every age
group," Zeljko

Joksimovic comments.
Qvest Media will provide the
consulting for the development of
the European Parliament's broadcast
and multimedia infrastructures. A
recently signed four-year agreement
covers the provision of services for
the parliamentary offices in both
Brussels and Strasbourg. The objective
is to establish more efficient working
conditions for media organisations
and news representatives. New
technologies like UHD/HDR or multiplatform distribution and streaming
will be adopted plus migration of
the existing SDI network to an all-IP
infrastructure.
Studiotech Belgium is participating
in the modernisation of two control
rooms and two studios for Radio/
Television Senegal (RTS) in Dakar.
Equipment involved includes Avid
iNews, an Evertz EQX-10 hybrid video
central matrix, new Evertz 3067VIPX
multiviewers, intercom and KVM
matrices, audio processors, Autocue
prompting infrastructure, four 55-inch
video walls as well as of 30 kVA and
60 power supplies. Studiotech has
also renovated two regional television
channels in eastern and southern
Senegal (RTS3 Tambacounda and RTS4
Ziguinchor respectively). Each includes
a four-camera production system as
well as Avid Media Composer stations
and dedicated broadcast servers.
Other recent
projects
for
RTS include a

equipped with four Sony HDC-300
cameras, Sony MVS-3000 32/16 vision
mixer, 2.4 metre C band satellite
antenna, Clear-Com Pico 32 intercom,
an Evertz Xenon 32 x 32 router and an
Evertz 3067VIPX multiviewer.
TVC
recently
completed
an
expandable HD OB trailer for
Norwegian public broadcaster NRK.
At 13.6 metres long and weighing
26 tonnes, OB24 is one of the
largest vehicles we have built,"
comments Aras Kriaučiūnas, Head
of TVC's Projects Management
Group. "Equipped with 24 dedicated
workplaces, it comprises a camera
control suite, a slow-motion video
effects facility, two production
galleries, an audio control suite, plus
an apparatus and server room. OB24
is a designed to handle simultaneous
feeds from 28 cameras. Four Leader
LV5350 waveform monitors were
chosen for the camera control suite
plus an LV7300 rasterizer for the main
production gallery."
Swiss broadcast systems integrator
Visuals has completed a project for
the Geneva offices of a globally active
service organisation. It includes two
control desks forming a core part
of a new television studio. These
comprise an L-shaped Custom
Consoles Module-R for use by up to
five production gallery operators and
a rectangular Module-R Lite configured
for two operators.
"The facility will be used for a wide
range of productions which can be
live streamed or recorded for later
viewing," says Peter Sullivan, Visuals'
Broadcast Systems Project Manager.
"Module-R and Module-R Lite series
have proved a successful choice in
earlier projects we have completed
for major broadcasters such as RTS
and more recently for Switzerland's
National Equestrian Institute, allowing
robust and operator-friendly desks
to be produced from our initial draft
designs."
