Net Gains for Perform Group and WTA with Ross Video
The new Perform facility was completed towards the end of 2016 and has now been operational for 8 months. It includes a range of products from Ross Video including the Carbonite Black production switcher, Abekas replay server, Ultrix routing platform and several customised DashBoard control interfaces.
Paul Quinn, Operations Manager at Perform, is delighted with the results. “The deal with the WTA is the largest contract in women’s sport that has ever been signed. The main aim of this facility is to deliver the best quality product for WTA Media; we take in the pictures from almost all of the WTA events globally, quality check them, add commentary and distribute them to the relevant broadcast partners. Our operators need products that are intuitive, easy to use and tailored to their needs so they can concentrate on the images in front of them on screen. We’re very pleased with the products we procured from WTS and Ross – everything has worked exactly as needed”.
Oscar Juste, Ross Video’s Director of Sales for EMEA, points to flexibility as the key to this project’s success. “We talk a great deal about Smart Production and our ability to help content producers work more quickly and efficiently. Both WTS and Ross spent a lot of time understanding Perform’s creative, technical and business needs, and we were able to create various customised DashBoard panels that are very powerful yet simple to use. This has given Perform’s operators a great deal of flexibility and has helped everyone to be more creative as well as more efficient”.
