Fox Sports playout from a new facility in the Media Park Hilversum has gone live, controlled by VSM broadcasting from L-S-B. Initially Fox will playout and manage six channels of HD and nine online channels, with the capacity for future expansion. Fox Sports is the largest premium TV channel in Holland with live sports coverage of Eredivisie & Jupiler League, Bundesliga, Barclays Premier League, ATP tennis tournaments & Wimbledon, the NFL and MLB.
LDM (local Lawo Group representation) alongside UK systems integrator Broadcast Networks worked closely with Fox Sports, which chose VSM as it offered freedom of control to manage resources and allowed complete dynamic assignment of operational positions.
The VSM system connects and controls products from many vendors, including an Imagine Communications Platinum IP3 Router, Axon modular glue equipment, G&D’s DVI Control Centre Digital, and Pebble Beach automation.
