German parliament upgrades with BTS27 June 2013
German parliament will get a TV upgrade, when coverage of sessions by BTS broadcast technology solutions, transfers to HD. In the German National Parliament’s Reichstag building in Berlin, more than 35 cameras in two studios, five conference rooms and in the plenary hall can be dynamically assigned to four control rooms.
The parliament TV is used-in house and for transmission via public and private broadcasters and via the internet. Now the plenary hall and one control room will be upgraded by BTS to HD.
BTS will install eight Grass Valley LDX cameras with 40-times Fujinon lenses and eight camera CCUs (XCUs) with OCPs and MCPs, a transmission system via dark fibre, a Grass Valley Kayak-HD mixer and a multiviewer system. Two HD character generators and two Nevion HD routers will be integrated. Both the Radamec camera robotic system and the Jupiter control system will be adapted to the new technology. New HD monitors and a Tektronix waveform monitor complete the upgrade.
