CBC Radio-Canada and LiveU to Bring SMPTE ST 2110 Standard to State-of-the-Art New Montreal Broadcast Facility

CBC/Radio-Canada has chosen LiveU as a technology supplier, adding LU600 HEVC field units, servers and supporting equipment to its operations. The development of a new state-of-the-art broadcast center in Montreal and the national public broadcaster’s mission to adhere to the SMPTE ST 2110 Standard prompted LiveU to partner with CBC/Radio-Canada to develop an IP-based solution. CBC/Radio-Canada facilities in Toronto and Montreal will carry LiveU gear and support broadcast, digital, and radio operations. LiveU Canadian Reseller Partner, DXM Technologies will support CBC/Radio-Canada on the ground.

“CBC/Radio-Canada broadcasts from locations around the world, requiring an integrated solution to deliver high-quality live transmissions over IP to its audiences,” said Avi Cohen, LiveU COO & Co-founder. “CBC/Radio-Canada has given us the opportunity to understand their production needs and how they serve the public. We are honored to have been given the opportunity to work towards the development of a mix of products that support SMPTE 2110 for CBC/Radio-Canada.”

Collaboration with Global Broadcasters

LiveU’s global presence and customer base which includes major global broadcasters CNN, Fox News, CBS News, NBC, BBC, Sky News, and others made the organization a valuable technology supplier to CBC/Radio-Canada. The potential to collaborate with the global news organizations via LiveU’s Content Contribution and Distribution Service, LiveU Matrix will allow CBC/Radio-Canada to share and receive pool content from high-profile events and breaking news events around the world.

35th anniversary Posted: 29/07/2020
35th anniversary

Admittedly, it’s not the best time to celebrate an anniversary, but the occasion remains: Guntermann & Drunck GmbH (G&D) has been in business for 35 years and is considered one of the hidden champions of Germany’s South Westphalia region. The Siegen-based company develops and manufactures KVM products for extending and switching computer signals, and operates on a global scale. KVM systems from G&D are installed in numerous control rooms around the globe, for example in air traffic control centers, TV & film production studios, the chemical industry as well as in the energy sector.

The company was founded on 22 July 1985 by Udo Guntermann and Martin Drunck as well as Reiner Ruelmann. Today, the medium-sized company continues to grow solidly and employs around 100 people at its locations in Siegen, Germany, and Burbank, CA, USA. “We were already developing KVM devices before the technology even had a name" says Roland Ollek, CEO of Guntermann & Drunck GmbH. “Our company works in a niche occupied by few companies in the world. With our expertise in providing solutions and developing products close to both the market and our customers, we have now become one of the world's leading hidden champions.”
