NEWS MANIPULATE & EDIT 4K/HDR Rogers Media, part of Canada’s Rogers Communications, has selected technology from Snell Advanced Media (SAM) as part of the set-up for its 4K and HDR broadcasting services. At the heart of the installation is a Kahuna 9600 switcher, featuring a 16 input A/B cut buss, for the machine room where it will operate alongside Morpheus automation and ICE Channel-in-a-Box (CiaB) units. Rogers Media has also installed main and backup 4K sQ servers in addition to a range of SAM infrastructure products. Rogers Media vice president of TV Frank Bruno said: “After a rigorous testing process with a variety of manufacturers, SAM’s technology just worked. The support during the proof of concept was excellent, installing, testing and ensuring the system would be rock-solid live on-air. In fact, we have gone live with the proof of concept system while we deploy the full system it worked that well.” Content to be transmitted includes more than 100 live sports events, including every Toronto Blue Jays baseball home game and more than 20 NHL ice hockey matches.

At NAB (booth C1745), Calrec Audio will showcase four new networking interfaces: an AES67/Ravenna interface; an AVB interface; a modular I/O Dante card that also has AES67 compatibility; and a SMPTE 2022-6 video interface. “We’re drawing a line in the sand with these products,” said Dave Letson, Calrec’s vice president of sales. “We had held back on publicly stating Calrec’s formal direction on AoIP until we had properly assessed the market and talked to our customers. We strongly feel that it is not the role of a manufacturer to dictate which route to take, but to facilitate the broadcasters’ choices. Calrec’s customers can now interface with multiple protocols at the same time.” blackmagicdesign.com calrec.com s-a-m.com Grading SGL has an established history serving the archive needs of broadcast facilities around the world.
