Spanish language broadcaster Televisa has deployed Sienna MediaVortex Media Globalization, linking the twin Sienna infrastructures at Televisa's Mexico City HQ and the International Broadcast Centre at the London 2012 Olympics. MediaVortex spans the 6000-mile, 100mBit, 200-millisecond latency connection with a fully managed UDP based WAN acceleration layer for intelligent transfer of proxies for still ingesting and completed assets, which are recorded in London. These proxies are used by editors and loggers in Mexico, with their log entries and edits automatically sent back to London for conforming. Mark Gilbert, CTO of Gallery SIENNA commented: "The system has been working excellently and over the first four days of the Olympics around 600 hours of Proxy media has been propagated to Mexico. The seamless user interface and reliable MediaVortex transfers have allowed operators to quickly embrace the system." Each one of these assets is conjoined with its twin in London so changes made at either end are instantly reflected at the other. By selecting a Sienna remote edit workflow; Televisa has reduced its head count in London by more than half compared to Beijing, with the remainder working remotely from their desks in Mexico. www.sienna.tv
