Beeline TV’s playout centre driven by Snell routers9 October 2013
Russian provider of home IPTV services Beeline TV, has chosen Snell Sirius and Halo routers in its newly upgraded playout centre in Moscow. The systems integrations and installation services for Beeline TV were provided by V-LUX.
"When Beeline TV chose V-LUX for the upgrade of its national IPTV playout centre, we were committed to sourcing state-of-the-art systems to meet our client’s exacting requirements for seamless signal routing as well as quick and discrete redundant connections to IPTV backup services," said Anton Rakutin, senior project manager at V-LUX. "The Snell Sirius and Halo routers have provided the ideal solution, offering the perfect mix of high redundancy and broadcast-quality output in flexible and extremely easy-to-use systems."
In Beeline TV’s new playout centre, the Snell Sirius and Halo routers provide signal routing for the service’s entire linear and on-demand TV lineup. The Halo system (pictured), provides a solution for HD, SDI, and ASI switching, and the Sirius routers offer automatic conversion of any input to any output in both analogue and digital formats.
"Beeline TV is a trailblazer in the Russian IPTV landscape, bringing a highly sought-after service to home viewers across the country. Beeline’s choice of Snell routers for its new playout center is a testament to the highly flexible, affordable, and redundant technologies that are built into every Halo and Sirius system," said Andrey Velichko, Snell’s head of sales for the CIS and Baltic states. "With Snell’s advanced routing technology supporting its operations, Beeline TV is well-positioned to continue on its rapid growth path and maintain its leadership position for Russian IPTV services."
