The CCMA group (Corporació Catalana de Mitjans Audiovisuals) and Sony are collaborating with system integrator Unitecnic to provide news channel 3/24 with the technology and infrastructure necessary for the transition to IP.
3/24 is using Nevion’s VideoIPath from Sony’s Networked Live ecosystem as a connection manager and the Sony HDCE-TX30 IP CCU to connect its existing cameras to the IP network.
“The integration of Sony and Nevion allows the use of the HDCE-TX30, an IP extension adapter for remote live production cameras, which facilitates the coexistence of the two formats (SDI and IP) as well as the integration with previously existing equipment, without the need to change and with significant cost savings,” said Oscar Garcia, senior solutions architect at Nevion.
The broadcaster built a new studio, identical to the previous one, and a control room from where it has been broadcasting at full capacity with IP technology since October.
“The transition to IP has been a crucial project that enables us to respond to the different changes and needs on a daily basis,” added Anna Ochoa, specialist engineer at 3/24. “Sony and Nevion have been fundamental partners for this transition and together with the joint work of the integrator Unitecnic, we have managed to overcome all the obstacles that a project of this size presents.”
