Playoutcenter for Mediatec Broadcast AS in Oslo/Norway
In late 2011 Broadcast Solutions implemented a complete TV playout center 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 288x576 Snell Cygnus video router and one 576x576 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.
Every event has its specific requirements. To meet each of these, Mediatec works in four integrated business areas, Outside Broadcast, Mobile Links, Production and Wireless/Camera Solutions. This enables Mediatec to supply adequate solutions for any broadcast. Mediatec Broadcast has an extensive range of outside broadcast units and production facilities. These include a fleet of more than 20 OB trucks, flight-pack facilities, studios, special cameras, 30-camera link systems, uplink trucks and fiber MCR’s.
The Mediatec track record reveals credits from large-scale broadcasts such as the Olympic Games in Sarajevo, Albertville, Lillehammer, Athens and Beijing, The Wimbledon Championships, The Nobel Prize Awards and Tour de France. To this should be added the experience as supplier to the host broadcaster for the Eurovision Song Contest, UEFA Cup Final, Champions League and IIHF World Championships.
