Axon broadcast’s white paper is just one of hundreds available from NewBay Connect. Launched this year, the website is a digital resource centre for professionals within the broadcast, professional AV and audio markets offering white papers, analyst reports, case studies, briefings and tutorials to its members. Below is an extract from Axon’s white paper, which can be downloaded in full here.
CTV recently launched their OB11 a 4K capable vehicle equipped with AXON’s monitoring and control software Cerebrum and its signal processing equipment Synapse.
The new truck commissioned to work on CTV’s recently renewed cricket contract with Sky Sports has been future-proofed to be 4K-capable as a matter of course. It supports 28 cameras and can accommodate 34 production staff. The unit is 3 GB/s throughout which is supported by AXON’s signal processing equipment. One of the Synapse modules in use is the GDV080 a 3Gb/s Monitoring distribution amplifier with down converted SD or analog video outputs. In case CTV will have a requirement for 4K production AXON can provide 4K up and down converters which fit in the same form factor as the 3GB/s modules.
The control and monitoring of the Sony production switcher, Image Communications router, Calrec audio console, RTS/Telex intercom and the Synapse modules is done through AXON’s monitoring and control software Cerebrum. Launched at IBC2013 Cerebrum provides comprehensive tools to configure, control, monitor and maintain products from any manufacturer within and beyond the broadcasting industry. It is one interface to control many devices.
