Nevion, a leader in transporting media from the camera to the home, has today announced an agreement to supply its latest media monitoring probe, the TNS4200, to both Deutsche Welle, Germany's international broadcaster, which creates content aimed at audiences outside of Germany, and parent company ARD the Association of Public Service Broadcasters of Germany, the worlds second-largest public sector broadcaster.
The TNS4200 is designed to continuously monitor broadcast streams and signals, enabling fast fault detection and diagnostics, with an easy-to-use and intuitive user interface. The TNS4200 will be used by ARDs Play-Out-Center in Potsdam, just outside of Berlin. The Play-Out-Center is responsible for digital video broadcasting multiplexing the three channels produced by Berlin-Brandenburg Broadcasting, the public broadcaster for the German states of Berlin and Brandenburg, namely, tagesschau24, EinsFestival and EinsPlus.
The ARD Play-Out-Center will add the Nevion TNS4200 to its existing bank of advanced digital recording, editing and broadcasting equipment, for its three transmission lines and satellite uplink.
With headquarters in Bonn and Berlin, Deutsche Welle creates television, radio and online content in 30 languages for audiences around the world, with a mission statement to promote intercultural dialogue and work to further international understanding and tolerance.
Deutsche Welle will also use the Nevion TNS4200 to monitor its satellite network, partner stations and the platforms providing the streams for other means of distribution.
Daniel Bikki, System engineer of ARD-Playout Center said: Nevion have a long history of supplying leading media transportation devices to broadcasters, and the TNS4200 will be a great asset to both ARD and Deutsche Welle.
The powerful toolbox will help us to find and diagnose faults quickly, and continuously monitor as many streams as we need, without affecting broadcast performance. Above all else, the TNS4200 will prove to be a cost-effective and most importantly, a very easy-to-use solution for us.
