Argosy focuses on convenience, operational flexibility and environmental considerations at CABSAT 2020

Argosy, a leading international supplier of broadcast and AV cables and infrastructure products, will provide support for the Middle East and North Africa media market at CABSAT 2020 (31 March – 2 April 2020, Dubai World Trade Centre, stand G3-201). By providing a one-stop shop for systems engineers and designers, Argosy supports them in building sophisticated solutions quickly, simply and cost-effectively.

Argosy specialises in every aspect of media infrastructure, from cables and connectors to active hardware devices such as network switches, fibre transport and KVM switches. At CABSAT it will showcase a range of its offerings, including its own manufactured patching and termination panels, equipment racks and tactical fibre and SMPTE camera cables. Plus products from some of the market leading manufacturers including: BES, Canare, Cliff Connectors, Ghielmetti, and Neutrik.

Experts from Austrian vendor kvm-tec will also be available on the Argosy stand, explaining how the latest generation of high-bandwidth, IP-connected KVM (keyboard, video and mouse) solutions can deliver secure connectivity with low latency while linking multiple workstations to multiple computers. Such solutions reduce clutter in operational areas by needing only one set of keyboard, mouse and monitor while instantly accessing multiple services. This also helps to reduce cost by eliminating multiple monitors which contributes significantly to an improvement in environmental performance.

“With the media world changing so rapidly, demanding more outputs and higher resolutions, we know our customers need to be able to rely on suppliers to ensure they have the right infrastructure hardware, now and for the future,” said Chris Smeeton, CEO of Argosy. “We have a strong and long standing presence in the Middle East, and our many customers know that we are much more than just cable stockists – we can help finalise the details of installations, ensuring that the system works first time and stays working.

“CABSAT is a great opportunity for us to talk to our client base in the region,” Smeeton added. “They know us as problem solvers, and we enjoy finding solutions for them that are reliable, practical and, in an atmosphere of increasing environmental concerns, as green as we can make them.”

Chinese Television System Relies on Riedel Intercom Solution for Live 2020 Taipei New Years Eve Broadcast Posted: 28/01/2020
Chinese Television System Relies on Riedel Intercom Solution for Live 2020 Taipei New Years Eve Broadcast

WUPPERTAL, Germany — Jan. 28, 2020 — Riedel Communications today announced that Chinese Television System (CTS) relied on a Riedel intercom solution to support its live production of the 2020 Taipei New Year's Eve Party, hosted at the Taipei City Hall Square. Broadcast live by CTS on its flagship channel and on its news channels, the seven-hour broadcast included multiple Taiwanese star performances, with an impressive New Year's Eve countdown lighting up the iconic Taipei 101 skyscraper and a stunning five-minute fireworks display. The show at Taipei City Hall is growing bigger and more spectacular every year and recently ranked among CNN's Top 10 places to spend New Year's Eve.

"For us it was important to have a reliable intercom system that would ensure smooth communication during a long live broadcast window," said Matt Lin, Engineer at CTS. "We expected a high level of noise from the crowd and also from the stage, and this was a challenge. Nevertheless, the production, camera, and stage crews came back with positive feedback on Bolero."

TSL Products Expanded Broadcast Control Systems Meet Demands of Sports Production Environments Posted: 12/12/2019
TSL Products and rsquo; Expanded Broadcast Control Systems Meet Demands of Sports Production Environments

TSL Products, a leading designer and manufacturer of broadcast workflow solutions, continues to see expanded uptake of its broadcast control system offerings to meet the specific needs of sports broadcasters who require solutions that keep up in fast-paced, high-stress environments. Using TSL’s powerful control tools to support remote production in particular, local production teams can maximise their resources and take control of devices located anywhere, allowing them to save valuable time and investment when it matters most.

“The conversation about broadcast sports solutions and applications today is heavily focused on remote production, and all the major events and broadcasters are seeking solutions that are quick and simple to implement,” says Mark Davies, Director of Products and Technology at TSL Products. “Our control offerings allow customers to quickly set up systems and take control of their configurations — making TSL’s control platforms incredible versatile for live productions. At TSL Products, we strive to provide our customers with reliable gear that simplifies and expedites remote command and control over production capabilities. This is especially important for sports productions, where there’s an audience of millions, and no margin for error.”

TSL’s device controllers can be used to pass camera tally signals and trigger graphics between multiple production trucks and venues. Tallies can tell the hands-on operator that the camera is ‘live’ and selected on a production switcher for use on-air. Delegating who has control over what camera tallies and what resources at a remote site can be configured ahead of the game, or even while live on air—saving precious time in these high-speed environments. Additionally, the company’s kit is perfect for production fly-packs deployed to remote game sites communicating with a local system at the home base facility to route tallies from production studio to the event location.

TSL inherited a powerful ingest management solution as part of its acquisition of DNF Controls in April 2019. These solutions have been designed with a sports broadcaster’s high-volume recording facility in mind, where sometimes overwhelming amounts of incoming material must be secured. Specifically, the company’s GTP-32 Control Processor offers a simple, cost-effective, and easily accessible solution, which can be configured for multiple simultaneous ingest channels, with units located remotely. The GTP-32 delivers conditional operator control and monitoring over a wide range of broadcast production equipment across cities, states and countries.

Esports Stadium Arlington Integrates TSL Products Advanced Control System Into Workflow for Seamless Interoperability Posted: 23/10/2019
Esports Stadium Arlington Integrates TSL Products and rsquo; Advanced Control System Into Workflow for Seamless Interoperability

Esports Stadium Arlington in Texas needed to establish a broadcast workflow suitable for its modern, 100,000-square-foot event space. The stadium’s integrator suggested adding TSL Products’ advanced control system into the facility’s workflow to achieve a seamless, universal broadcast control surface.

 

“We needed an advanced and user-friendly system to transition between live hosts and various player cameras to help organize who should be live at each point of the event,” says Corey Dunn, VP of Broadcast for the stadium. “Operating with TSL’s advanced control system benefits both the production crew and on-camera talent. From the hosts at the desk transitioning from camera-to-camera to our production crew knowing who is live and when – the integration of TSL into our workflow doesn’t just impact camera operators, but the entire production.”

 

The stadium uses TSL Products’ advanced control to significantly improve its workflow, especially with the multitude of camera angles required in esports productions. In addition to the sheer volume of inputs and potential places that the technical director needs to locate and select for preview/program, the fast-paced and ever-changing “action movie” nature of the environment also lends itself to a dedicated advanced control system. Additionally, many Esports workflows require interfacing a bevy of both traditional broadcast as well as IT and COTS equipment to run properly. Using Virtual Panel Interfaces, the stadium can create an easily configurable process to customize these operations with intuitive, drag-and-drop controls.

 

“TSL helped solve our biggest challenge: integrating the many different types of equipment and technology we have at the facility,” said Dunn. “The system provided us with the opportunity to put on smooth shows on a consistent basis. Our integrator helped us make the best possible selection for the facility, and TSL continues to deliver.”

 

TSL’s intuitive control interface enables users to establish seamless broadcast communication on a single, unified layer. The system was initially built as a tally system, and therefore had to be independent, universal, configurable and infinitely scalable. With over 2,000 installations worldwide, TSL can now manage complex control tasks, such as router control, studio failover and delegation. With TSL, customers can achieve interoperability between equipment routed through analog, IP or hybrid networks, regardless of differing manufacturers and format specifications. TSL’s Tallyman control system is a globally trusted and road-tested broadcast production control solution that bridges the gap between IP framework components and any broadcast or live presentation technical equipment.
