Telegenic Networks US Golf Coverage With Riedel MediorNet

Outside broadcast company Telegenic is using a Riedel MediorNet decentralised signal routing and distribution system as part of its technical production of US golf for European broadcasters.

UK-based Telegenic recently opened premises in Atlanta, the US golf capital. Its Riedel MediorNet location production system comprises a MetroN core router, ten MicroN media distribution network units and four Compact Pro mainframes. This is used to carry HD video and a range of different audio feeds.

The installation also marks the first North American use of Riedel's MediorNet MultiViewer software application. This operates on two of the MicroN devices and allows multiple views of up to 18 video signals on four MultiViewer displays. Also part of the installation is Riedel's RockNet 300 audio distribution network, which sits on top of the MediorNet infrastructure.

When installed on site the MediorNet system and its constituent parts sit on a 10Gbps fibre optic network. This arrangement creates a decentralised routing matrix, with WDM multiplexers reducing the number of fibre connections for the Compact Pros from six single-mode cores to only two.

Commenting on the new system, Andrew Wisniewski, Telegenic's US operations supervisor, said, "MediorNet controlled by VSM hardware and virtual panels provides the technical and production team with unprecedented flexibility. The all-in-one approach, where we do not need to route signals in and out of various pieces of equipment drastically simplifies the set-up. The network design makes connecting the trucks and sharing resources much easier and more straightforward."
