In this series of articles, we will explain broadcasting for IT engineers. Television is an illusion, there are no moving pictures and todays broadcast formats are heavily dependent on decisions engineers made in the 1930’s and 1940’s, and in this article, we look at the most fundamental element of video – sensors.

Since launching in 1965, the Brazilian-based Globo TV has established itself as a leading content producer, attracting, entertaining and pulling together viewers from all over the world with original content and high production values. Challenge To maintain this reputation, Globo TV wanted to improve the workflow of its post-production control centre, which is used to monitor, manage and store all incoming and outgoing TV feeds as well as the associated computers that are dedicated to this media transfer process. It wanted operators to be able to access the 25 ingest computers from six different locations, eliminating the need to have users physically moving between each of the 25 computers, while also allowing them to display all or designated ingest streams on a video wall. After identifying these requirements, Globo TV contacted the team at Adder Technology to specify a solution. Having already used KVM technology to simplify the workflows in its audio editing rooms, Globo TV knew this was also the answer to its post-production problems, but it required specialist knowledge to help identify what was required. After understanding Globo TV’s needs as a business, Adder decided on a range of products that would work together using the existing network infrastructure.
At NAB, Black Box introduced the next generation of InvisaPC, allowing broadcast control rooms to reap all the benefits of virtualizing workflows in the cloud.
