ProSiebenSat.1 Station Deploys Stryme’s Genesix VideoServer

ProSiebenSat.1 purchased the latest 2U edition VideoServer with 16 HD-SDI channels for its Austrian private TV station PULS 4.

The station previously used the server for live, studio and on-location broadcasts of the Austrian legislative elections in 2019. The group’s free TV stations ATV, PULS 4 and the new NewsChannel PULS 24 covered all debates and election news programs.

Stryme's server is equipped with an AutoNaming function and three lightweight Genesix 2GO storage units.

The AutoNaming function automatically names and categorizes clips and camera settings in logically structured directories and sub-directories.

Genesix 2GO is described as a high-tech storage/backup and data transportation device with a capacity of up to 6TB packed in a sturdy casing. Its high bandwidth ensures rapid video content transfers in real time for up to 16 channels (XDCAM HD 422) without compromising quality.

The packages come complete with ingest, transfer manager and MAM. A cable connects the two. All data (clips, video footage, etc.) is transferred and stored simultaneously on the Genesix VideoServer and on the portable storage units. After recording, data transfer to post-production is as simple as ‘unplug and go’.

Philipp Beuchert, Head of Broadcast & Production Systems at ATV Privat TV says: “We have worked with the server for more than five years. Its high-tech features, simple operation and easy integration with other processes impresses us every day.”
