SES has selected Telestream to provide system timing, waveform monitor and quality control (QC) technology at its recently opened remote production facility at Stockley Park, London.
The facility will employ Telestream’s SPG8000A sync generators for system timing applications as well as its PRISM SDI/IP waveform monitor for all video monitoring and QC applications.
The SPG8000A sync generators with an ECO8000 change-over unit enable full remote operation through a web user interface. According to Telestream, this enables the SES teams in Munich to switch network timing sources or GPS receivers remotely without the need to be on-site in London to perform critical management and support tasks.
The team in Munich will also be able to remotely operate and view all of the PRISM waveform monitors in order to check SDI signal quality and deep video analysis.
“When we developed PRISM platform, the primary goal was to help our customers address the un-chartered futures of UHD and IP packet-based infrastructures,” said Charlie Dunn, SVP, Tek Business Unit at Telestream. “By using a ‘software defined’ approach this allowed us to adapt to the direction of the industry by working closely with early adopters like SES. Early on it became clear that remote-access was a key tenant to these customers’ IP transitions and, as a result, the remote-access of PRISM’s UI over the network has become one of its most valued capabilities.”
