Crystal Vision shows project-winning up and down converters and embedded audio modules at IBC 2010 Posted: 16/07/2010

The four new interface products that Crystal Vision will be showing on Stand 2.B11 at IBC 2010 work with 3Gb/s, HD and SD sources, can handle four groups of embedded audio and include the option of integrated fibre input/output connectivity. They have also helped Crystal Vision to win many of the biggest projects currently happening in the broadcast industry, following in-depth product evaluation and acceptance by major broadcasters.

At IBC Crystal Vision will be demonstrating the project-winning features of the Up-Down 3G up/down/cross converter, Q-Down-A 3G short-delay down converter and DA, TANDEM 3G embedder/de-embedder and SYNNER-E 3G multi-functional synchroniser. Crystal Vision products have always been designed to save rack space by being space-saving modules with 12 fitting in a 2U frame, but go one step further now with the latest products fitting more functionality in a single frame slot than ever before. The FIP fibre input and FOP fibre output options plug directly on to the Up-Down 3G, Q-Down-A 3G, TANDEM 3G and SYNNER-E 3G motherboards making it easy for them to send or receive signals from beyond the local equipment bay, while having the fibre integral to the board reduces the need to use additional rack space and money for separate fibre optic transmitters and receivers.

ABC and Fox affiliate WGGB-TV selects Crystal Vision for HD upgrade Posted: 03/06/2010

Massachusetts-based ABC and Fox affiliate WGGB-TV has selected Crystal Vision for its transition to HD, with the supplier decision made on the products functionality per dollar. WGGB-TV purchased 32 boards to up convert, down convert, distribute, synchronise, delay and embed/de-embed signals, and to key logos on to on-air programming.
WGGB-TV has been broadcasting from Springfield in the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts since 1953. Locally owned by Gormally Broadcasting, WGGB-TV is an affiliate for two of The Big Four US television networks: ABC and Fox. WGGB-TV broadcasts ABC programming (branded as ABC40) in High Definition and has been broadcasting Fox (known as Fox6) since 2008. WGGB-TV has its own studios in Springfield for local programming and needed to find an interface supplier for the HD upgrade of these studios, with the decision to be based on the products scalability, price and functionality.
WGGB-TV evaluated four interface suppliers, including its current provider. Following the detailed evaluation, WGGB-TV chose Crystal Vision because of the amount of functionality per dollar. WGGB-TV liked the fact that they could adjust the design based on the budget, with the system design actually changing after WGGB-TV engineers saw the features of the Crystal Vision boards.
