BirdDog Studio NDI produces robotics live event
Building robots, programming them and then competing in tournaments – could education be more fun? VEX Robotics is all about creating tools for today’s educators, mentors and parents to inspire tomorrow’s problem solvers. With over 1,000,000 students in more than 50 countries actively using the VEX Robotics platform, it truly is a global movement in STEM education. STEM education is the learning of science, technology, engineering and mathematics in an interdisciplinary or integrated approach; robotics addresses all of this in the most engaging way possible. BirdDog Studio NDI was recently used exclusively as the video capture and distribution hardware at the VEXRobotics Australian Nationals, using the power and flexibility of its NDI products to bring the production to life.

Jyske Bank installs Workspace Backup for its online channel Posted: 21/06/2018
Jyske Bank installs Workspace Backup for its online channel

Jyske Bank prides itself on its innovative corporate culture – and rightly so. Back in October 2008, Jyske Bank was the first bank in the world to open an internet-based TV station – jyskebank.tv. Every day, this station brings financial news and in-depth economic programmes, along with informative and entertaining journalistic features from Denmark and abroad, all created using Avid systems. Jyske Bank decided to invest in Workspace Backup from Marquis Broadcast after a rather unfortunate RAID service error on their Avid ISIS a few months back, which meant they lost some of their media. This new Workspace Backup system is now being used to take daily backups of Avid work-in-progress, as part of Jyske Bank’s disaster recovery systems.
