French broadcast company M6 Group has announced plans to move to an all-IP workflow, employing the SMPTE ST 2110 suite of standards for professional media delivery over IP networks and SMPTE 2022-7 for seamless protection switching.
M6 Group has tasked Harmonic with upgrading its ingest, playout and storage infrastructure to a media-over-IP solution.
The company will employ Harmonic’s Spectrum X media servers for content ingest, live switching with graphics, DVE, 24×7 playout and manual review, with manual control supported through Broadteam’s Omnium video controller. Harmonic’s MediaGrid shared storage system will support M6 Group’s real-time editing and playout operations.
“Having relied upon Harmonic’s video production and playout solutions for over a decade, we know firsthand the reliability and innovation they provide,” said Mathias Bejanin, CTO at M6 Group.
“When the infrastructure goes live, we will be leading the market in global deployments of SMPTE ST 2110 and SMPTE 2022-7 protection, setting the benchmark for workflow modernisation, efficiency and redundancy.”
