PLAYOUT LIVE VIDEO OVER IP TVU Networks has signed up reseller Ariston Broadcast & Telecom Solutions to sell its kit in Greece and Cyprus. The deal will see the Athens based company offer TVU’s full suite of IP products and offer rental services for capturing, transmitting and distributing live video. Ariston managing director Christos Doulis said: “This partnership with TVU Networks is crucial as we enter into this new era where customers require integrated solutions that combine technology, industry leadership, quality, cost-efficiency - and at the same time, the sustainable tools and methodologies not just to optimise their infrastructure and IP video ecosystem now but also for the future.” At the same time TVU Networks has announced that its IP transmission, routing and distribution equipment will be available by Techex in the UK. Globecast has been chosen by The Africa Channel to provide media management, playout and distribution services across the US from its Culver City Media Centre in California. Making use of the Media Factory cloud-based media processing platform, the Africa Channel provides edited content that is ingested before Globecast carries out quality control (QC) and ad-insertion. The Africa Channel is distributed via cable in the US. Globecast has also replaced two Africa Channel satellite feeds - one SD and one HD - with a single HD feed and managed the sourcing and deployment of the new receivers and worked with cable affiliates who require a SD variant to install new transcoders. PLAYOUT Playout and television service provider ABS Broadcast has installed Cinegy Air PRO, the real-time playout server and multi-channel broadcast automation software. ABS Broadcast head of technology and engineering Mukund Patel said: “The growing demand for our playout services worldwide meant that we simply couldn’t continue buying and maintaining racks upon racks of servers. There had to be a better way, which has now clearly emerged as an IP-based approach.” The Cinegy Multiviewer, Archive, Studio PRO, and, for graphics, Type have also been installed, with all of the modules being integrated with the ABS’s ABSolute Delivery Platform. +44 1293 541 200 “Designed from experience, built with passion” ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● Wireless Camera Systems Multiple RF Cameras Full Camera Control DOMO (Cobham) Systems Full Support and Advice Bespoke Design Years of Onsite Experience Onboard Cameras Mini Cameras KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 115 JULY 2016 | 25
