DataMiner Tech Behind Sony’s Live Element Orchestrator

Sony uses Skyline Communications technology as the orchestration engine in its Live Element Orchestrator.

Sony has driven rapid global adoption of its IP Live Production System including system cameras, video switchers and servers with IP capability as well as the development of the IP Live System Manager,” said Masakazu Murata, GM, Media Solution Business Division at Sony. “As a result, Sony has already proven itself to more than 50 OB trucks/studio systems around the world. Our first-ever Live Element Orchestrator performs the overall system management of an IP-based production system including third-party solutions. In this development, Skyline’s DataMiner was adopted as a core technology. 

“We are extremely excited that our multi-vendor DataMiner technology was selected by Sony as orchestration engine for their new Live Element Orchestrator solution,” said Ben Vandenberghe, CEO at Skyline Communications. “DataMiner’s highly pronounced open architecture is indeed part of its unrivaled signature. But what is more, by leveraging our engines, our partners and customers can also benefit from a wealth of other unsurpassed features and capabilities. “A good example is the fully integrated artificial intelligence, which is vital to manage all-IP and highly virtualized ecosystems easily, efficiently and even proactively. The DataMiner Augmented Operation allows operators to focus on managing the operation and preventing issues instead of having to resolve them.”
