AIT Partnership Group Ltd, the leading UK integrator of matrix KVM switching, today announced it had provided consulting services and the Matrix KVM Switch solution used in the new BT Sport broadcast centre in East London.
The Matrix KVM Switch connects all video services within the broadcast centre. Part of the former International Broadcast Centre of the London Olympics, BT Sports broadcast centre includes three studios, production galleries, 20 editing suites, 200 producer desktops, a control room and a central equipment room which houses all the computing resources.
From the outset BT Sport was clear on their objectives to deploy a system that would allow complete flexibility to interconnect hundreds of workstations throughout the building to banks of remotely-located electronic equipment, explained Ian Martin, Broadcast Solution Consultant for AIT Partnership Group Limited.
IHSE KVM matrix switches provide the critical central data switching functionality. IHSEs combination of high video resolution, low latency and instant switching, combined with comprehensive interfacing to studio control systems and stored configuration capability made it the ideal choice, said Ian Martin.
The solution has already been running in-situ for a number of months with BT-Sport. For further information please see our case study: http://www.ait-pg.co.uk/broadcast-and-control-rooms/broadcast-and-control-case-studies/bt-sport/
The tight integration timescale and the size of the project made this the most challenging broadcast installation we have completed in our 12 year history. Steven Bailey, CEO AIT Partnership Group Ltd.
At the core of our new studio build is a spirit of collaboration that brings the best of industry working together toward a common aim: to make the BT Sport studios a world-class hub for the best ideas and talent. Jamie Hindhaugh, Chief Operating Officer of BT Sport.
