"ATG Broadcast pioneered the transition from tape-based to file-based production, content management and playout both in the SD and HD domain," comments Tim Felstead. "Our infrastructure design team fully understand the advantages to be gained by integrating IP based technology, networks and software into their designs. We also have detailed experience of the workflows necessary to broadcast content to cellular and internet based viewing platforms. The resultant systems, operating successfully in many countries, are reliable, easy to use, easy to maintain and easy to expand."

Projects currently in progress or recently completed include:

* System expansion for Ericsson Broadcasting Services at its headquarters in Stockholm, including the upgrading of Studio K2 from standard definition to 1080i high definition.
