TAG Helps Italy’s 3zero2 Monitor IP Streams

Production and distribution company 3zero2, in Milan, Italy, has added a TAG Video Systems MCM-9000 multiviewer and monitoring system to its state-of-the-art production facilities and multi-platform delivery services to enhance their monitoring capabilities at the company’s playout-MCR facility.

The addition of TAG’s IP-based all-software solution running on off-the-shelf hardware is the ideal fit for 3zero2’s 6,000 square meters of studio and production space, as it allows them to scale the multiviewer and monitoring system as the need arise.

Luciano Consigli, Technical director at 3zero2, said they were looking for an IP-only solution that ran on off-the-shelf hardware to support its live production, master control and playout services.

“We needed a Multiviewer that could support both compressed live streams and uncompressed ST2110/2022 streams in one platform.  TAG’s ability to provide a complete monitoring solution including signal probing and multi-view visualization in a single software-based solution” helped him make the purchase decision.

The system at 3zero2 was designed, installed and supported by TAG’s Italian partner Communication Video Engineering (CVE). CVE installed the TAG MCM-9000 IP-based Multiviewer to initially monitor more then 50-channels running on Dell COTS servers.
