ATG Danmon Upgrades Record TV Network’s London Studio

Upgraded Brazilian TV facility benefits from contracted planning, installation, configuration, commissioning, documentation and on-site training.

The London-based UK studios of Brazilian free-to-air commercial television broadcaster Record TV Network were the recent recipient of the latest in a series of technical upgrades from ATG Danmon. The services provided to Record TV included the redesign and wiring of the Record TV studio facility, installation of a new routing switcher and production switcher from Blackmagic Design, and AJA signal converters. Also, audio-to-PC interfacing was integrated into the Record TV production system to enable high quality audio communication via Skype TX for Radio.

"We contribute a wide range of programme content supplementing the output from our parent channel in São Paulo," says Record TV's UK Administrative Coordinator, Rui Reis. "These include news, interviews, documentaries and entertainment. This latest update expands the versatility of our production infrastructure. ATG Danmon has proved a very good technology partner, able to work alongside our studio team without disturbing normal programme operations and to support us when needed. The systems installed have improved our operational efficiency and output quality."

Productions are switched with a Blackmagic Design ATEM 2 ME.
