Broadcast Solutions has installed Riedel’s MediorNet real time media network on board Alphaline A12, a new HD OB van commissioned by Slovakian television network, Televízia Markíza.
Working in tandem with Riedel’s Artist digital matrix intercom solution, MediorNet provides a decentralised and redundant communications and signal routing backbone for Televízia Markíza’s line up of live sports and entertainment broadcasts. Riedel will be talking about the installation at IBC this year.
Rainer Kampe, Broadcast Solutions CTO, said: “MediorNet’s decentralised routing approach is perfect for live broadcasting. Not only does it reduce the single points of failure, but it also makes things simpler and more efficient by placing physical I/O closer to where it’s needed while also reducing copper. Alphaline A12 is our first OB deployment of MediorNet, and we know we’ve made the right choice to deliver the bulletproof communications capabilities Televízia Markíza requires.”
Alphaline A12 is capable of supporting 14-plus cameras in productions, such as Televízia Markíza’s popular Let’s Dance reality show, and also provides critical backup support for the network’s studio programming. Broadcast Solutions worked with Slovakian systems integrator Elektronika to design and install the van’s MediorNet network, consisting of a MetroN core router, 16 MicroN high-density media distribution network devices, and four MediorNet Compact stage boxes. An Artist 128 intercom system with 14 keypanels provides flexible high-quality communications.
