Südwestrundfunk (SWR) will implement MOG Technologies’ mxfSpeedrail at Euro 2016.
SWR, one of the largest broadcasting organisations in Germany, will take advantage of the technology to boost its production workflow throughout the tournament in the summer.
MOG Technologies provides MXF and centralised ingest solutions, and its mxfSpeedrail technology, a file-based system launched at IBC2014, is expected to be a key element of SWR’s video editing workflow.
Its core purpose is to reduce the time it takes for content to be ready to air.
“SWR has been using MOG’s ingest systems for several years, both in its studio facilities and OB vans,” said Steffen Kretz, video editing supervisor at SWR outside broadcasting.
“We know that mxfSPEEDRAIL is a robust and solid solution that enables the automation of ingest, transcode, playback and SDI capture processes with great capabilities that solve most of our media production breaches.”
The technology allows for editors to make changes to contents while they are still ingesting, rewrap and transcode in a single process, maintaining the content integrity, and convert audio bit depth from 16 bits to 24 bits without the need for third party solutions.
It also allows users to unify the production environment, transcoding the media files from any input format into a DNxHD format.
