ATG boosts Icelandic broadcasting7 September 2012
The output of the Icelandic Broadcasting Service (RUV) has been significantly enhanced with two new 1080i high definition channels from ATG Broadcast.
The new TX2 and TX3 channels form part of an expanded playout system hosted at the network’s headquarters in Efstaleiti, Reykjavik.
“RUV chose ATG Broadcast to install its 625-line playout system some years ago and was keen to maintain continuity with the same engineering team,” said ATG Broadcast Managing Director, Graham Day.
“Each of the two new HD channels is equipped with a Snell Integrated Content Engine and a Morpheus automated routing control system. A new monitor wall has been constructed in the transmission suite. An Axon multiviewer system, together with Genelec audio monitors, has also been installed to provide monitoring for all three channels.” – Michael Burns
