ATG Danmon has completed a series of system expansion projects at the Stockholm headquarters of Ericsson Broadcast Services.
"These are the latest in an ongoing series of infrastructure enhancements and additions which have been completed successfully by ATG's engineers working in partnership with our technical management team," said Pontus Wahlstedt, system engineer and chief designer at Ericsson AB. "They include upgrades of existing channels from standard-definition to high-definition plus additional technical facilities to accommodate new channels. A key element of each task was to ensure that all scheduled live-to-air and file-based transmission were able to continue without interruption."
"We have completed several projects for Ericsson in recent months," detailed Scott Adams, senior project engineer at ATG Danmon. "These include a new studio for TV4 Sports News, new HD channels for Canal8 and TV12 and various upgrades from SD to HD.
"The standard-definition to high-definition upgrade projects include TV4's K2 studio which centred on a Snell router expansion. We have also added high-definition playout facilities for three Ericsson channels with another Snell router expansion, additional Miranda interfaces and Axon glue.”
"Additional work recently completed at EBS in Stockholm has included expanded signal multiplexing resources, plus the large-scale installation of Harmonic Omneon ingest and playout servers for TV4."
