Televizia Markiza, a leading commercial television broadcaster in Slovakia, is now fully high definition after adding a new outside broadcast truck to its fleet. Its latest HD vehicle was built by German systems integrator Broadcast Solutions working with Slovakian company ELEKONIKA and is designed for both general location production and studio disaster recovery situations.
Just in time for the start of this recently past 2016-2017 season, Scotttrade Center, home to the St. Louis Blues NHL hockey team, upgraded the video control room that supports the center-hung video score board with a full complement of broadcast production solutions from Grass Valley.
With the emergence of 4K and HDR production, remote production companies and studios have been struggling to make sense of the additional requirements for more cabling (4X more) and native equipment that supports it.
