MBC TV Korea installs two Calrec Apollo consoles into flagship channel

Long-time Korean Calrec customer Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation (MBC), which has an extensive installed base of Artemis and Apollo consoles, has once again turned to Calrec to satisfy its growing audio needs with the purchase of two additional Apollo consoles.

Ji-hun An, Audio Director, Sound Department at MBC TV, said, “Being very familiar with Calrec’s Artemis and Apollo consoles, we’re confident in the stability of the company’s technology, which is vital in a live environment. The Apollo surface is also easy to use and when working live because we frequently have to adjust parameters during a broadcast, including channel dynamics and routing. The Apollo’s control surface makes this simple, and it’s high DSP count means configuring it for different projects is straightforward.”

MBC acquired the two additional Apollos from Calrec for its flagship MBC TV channel. The first console is installed in studio C, which is used for the production and recording of live-to-tape UHD and HD current affairs and wider cultural content. The second is in studio E, where similar content is produced for live-to-air broadcasts. MBC use a fixed format MADI box for multi-track recording in both studios.

Gravity Media Gears Up for a Summer of Sport with New Flyaways Posted: 07/01/2020
Gravity Media Gears Up for a Summer of Sport with New Flyaways

Gravity Media, a leading provider of outside broadcast trucks and flyaway production kits, is building further systems in preparation for premier sporting events in 2020, including a major football competition in Europe. Central to the new flyaway kits is the Platinum™ IP3 router from Imagine Communications.

The key to success in building flyaways is to create a system which provides all the resilience and reliability needed for live broadcasting, but in a compact footprint. As the name suggests, these often have to travel by air freight to meet deadlines, where additional space and weight can be prohibitively expensive.

“We picked the Platinum IP3 because we know it is reliable — we know what it does,” said Peter Newton, technical and operations director at Gravity Media. “Because of the established partnership with Imagine, we knew that we would get good support if we need it, and we will get ample utilization of the equipment. It is a good solid product that does what it says it will.”

Gravity Media has used equipment from Imagine Communications for over 15 years, which has established Imagine as a trusted partner. When it came to choosing routers for the new flyaways, Gravity Media compared all the popular models on the market, but was confident in selecting the field-proven Platinum IP3. The new flyaways will use both the 15RU and 28RU routers.

The key project for which these flyaways are designed requires support in 12 locations over a four-week period in June 2020. The kits will provide live production functionality. The Platinum IP3 routers incorporate integral multiviewer technology, reducing space in the racks and simplifying setup. The order also includes a number of modules from Imagine’s Selenio 6800+™ processing range, along with Magellan™ router control panels.

“While the headlines are about the transition to IP, it is important to remember that a lot of broadcasters and production companies need to extend and enhance existing, SDI-based systems,” said Mathias Eckert, SVP & GM EMEA/APAC, Playout & Networking, at Imagine Communications. “Because of our close partnerships with major operators like Gravity Media, we clearly understand the need for high-functionality, high-reliability SDI solutions, as well as IP technology, and we are committed to supporting our customers for as long as they need SDI, as part of our ‘your path, your pace’ approach to the IP transition.”

RTVE uses TVU Nano Router to capture the live action of the Morocco Rally Posted: 07/01/2020
RTVE uses TVU Nano Router to capture the live action of the Morocco Rally

TVU Networks, the global technology and innovation leader in live IP video solutions, announced that Spanish public broadcaster RTVE chose TVU equipment to follow the 2019 Rally of Morocco. RTVE’s coverage was a unique blend of action captured at close range with a smartphone running TVU Anywhere and more static moments shot using a standard camera setup with TVU One.

The Rally of Morocco is the most renowned rally in the country, bringing in the best racers every year. To provide viewers with an engaging live broadcast, RTVE sought a set of solutions whose versatility could match the liveliness of the rally.

RTVE found the answer in TVU Anywhere, the powerful application that turns mobile smart devices into HEVC transmitters with IS+ transmission algorithm. The Spanish broadcaster paired TVU Anywhere with the ultra-compact TVU Nano Router, which helped to ensure smooth, interruption-free transmissions by providing up to 200Mbps of secure, high-speed Internet by combining data from three different SIM providers. 

TVU One, the mobile live video transmitter with HEVC encoding, was also on standby for the event, deployed when RTVE needed to switch to a higher resolution transmission with ultra-low, sub-second latency. The combination of these TVU products helped RTVE effectively capture the fast-paced action of the 2019 Rally of Morocco, and the live broadcast was successfully aired to RTVE’s flagship website and TV channel.
