While the emerging concepts of remote processing and storage and “At-Home” production might be new to some, the team at Pac-12 Networks, the sports media production arm of the collegiate Pac-12 Conference, has been doing it—and refining their IT-centric workflows—for years. When you are tasked with supplying content across multiple platforms generated from 100 venues across 12 campuses, it’s just not humanly possible to deploy and manage all of the resources required.
UseeTV, an interactive television network owned and operated by PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia, recently installed a complete broadcast playout system from PlayBox Neo to power a new sports channel.
The broadcast facility is scheduled to open in autumn 2019, and it is based on a full-IP solution using SMPTE ST 2110. The facility will include multiple studios, postproduction facilities, a new nationwide master control room and a centralized ingest and playout center. All news and sports production will use the new IP infrastructure.
Imagine Communications has implemented a new multichannel playout center for Alpha TV in Athens, Greece. The new installation gives Alpha TV the ability to meet its viewers’ demand for HD on all channels, and builds a platform for future growth plans. It also ensures business continuity by providing full redundancy, eliminating the risk of any channel going off air.
As the clock ticks forward, broadcast and production professionals eagerly await news from the 2019 consumer Electronics Show (CES). Why should content producers and TV stations care what the CES industry announces in January, 2019?
This year is proving a volatile one for the playout market, with major shifts towards IP technology and major player Arqiva announcing it is aiming to move out of the sector. This has now been followed by Rohde & Schwarz buying UK playout, master control and graphics manufacturer Pixel Power, which substantially expands the German company’s broadcast and media division.
