Hamlet Delivers Quality Control to TVT for BBC World Services

Simultaneous monitoring of up to 4 channels of 3G, HD or SD SDI inputs

Versioning, localisation and media supply services expert, TVT has selected Hamlet's award-winning DigiScope DS900 to monitor both SD and HD signals in the transmission chain for the encoding of Closed Captions at BBC World.  The deal was for one initial unit, with the option to purchase further units as the anticipated requirement to insert Closed Captions in additional streams of BBC World increases.

Launched earlier this year at NAB, the DigiScope DS900 is a cost effective, 1U, half rack enclosure, with the capacity to provide simultaneous monitoring of up to 4 channels of 3G, HD or SD SDI inputs, with EYE pattern if required.

"After assessing all available products on the market, we chose the Hamlet DS900 for its exceptional combination of functionality and value for money," commented Kim Thesiger, managing director, TVT.  "We required a scope which was capable of handling both HD and SD signals as well as multiple signals from different feeds and the ability to access real time information about the feeds remotely. The Hamlet solution perfectly met our needs." concluded Thesiger.

The kit was installed at TVT in May 2011 and has already proved invaluable in troubleshooting complex signal issues between the UK and US.

"We know that our clients like TVT and installations such as those at BBC World, are looking for high quality at the lowest possible cost, and the DigiScope DS900 was designed with these two requirements in mind," added Steve Nunney, managing director, Hamlet Video International.
