Sports graphics company Alston Elliot (AE) Graphics has selected the Snell 2RU Vega router to create a web-enabled workflow environment for sports production in its new OB trucks. AE Graphics partnered with Thameside TV to facilitate the implementation.
Vega provides AE Graphics with a small footprint and web-based configuration, enabling members of the AE Graphics staff to instantly re-route the system, without specialist training. The Vega system also allows AE Graphics to plan for future developments in its OB space, including 4K routing and production.
John Scantlebury, chief technical officer at Alston Elliot, said: “Creating a flexible workflow environment is imperative to the implementation of our new OB trucks for sports production. A small footprint, combined with advanced capabilities, make Vega a natural choice, and we look forward to reaping the benefits of a more efficient workflow in the months to come.”
AE Graphics had already been using Snell routing equipment in its existing trucks and for the new OB vans the company chose a 96 port 2RU Vega. Vega routers are asynchronous, so any port can be configured as an input or output. Any port can also be configured for fibre or coax connectivity.
“Snell is pleased to help Alston Elliot Graphics implement our Vega router into its OB trucks, as well as helping the organisation prepare for the next step towards 4K,” said Mark Gardner, Snell sales director for Northern Europe and Africa.
