Broadcast Solutions has implemented a complete TV playout centre for Mediatec Broadcast AS in Oslo, Norway. The studio consists of a master control room and a central control room with 52 decoders, 28 encoders, 16 up/down/cross converters, 16 channel Dolby E, one 288×576 Snell Cygnus video router and one 576×576 Snell Cygnus video router.
Four stations are handled with the Probel Morpheus automation system and seven EVS servers: the “Rikstoto” sports channel and three Viasat channels. Two production studios, each with six cameras, are connected to the main control room, an external connection to an OB truck is also provided. 12 NLE stations are available in 16 combined cut and commentator rooms.
The new studio was built parallel to the 24/7 broadcasting; some existing equipment was carried over from the old studio. During the commissioning of the new studio the transmission was handled by an OB van.
