Japanese broadcaster Chukyo TV equips new broadcast suites with IHSE KVM switching system
With plans to locate staff over a large multi-floor building, the in-house engineering teams chose to house all broadcast technology equipment centrally and connect individual users throughout the building over copper and fiber cabling. Signal distribution is made possible by the Draco tera KVM switching system, giving operators at every workstation complete and instant access to all appropriate devices.
They can freely access editing, caption, scheduling and other broadcast tools from their own workstation consoles, without having to move to another desk or location. The system provides instant connectivity, switching and delay-free video and audio transmission throughout the studios, production floors and other areas within the broadcast facility.
Ryuhei Takahashi, Deputy Director at CTV Technology, said “The extensive access control and supervisory capability of the IHSE switches enables us to designate which individual users have access to specific devices in the center. For example, individual users can be allowed to control playback of video without being able to edit it. Or they can be allowed to only access specific SNG and FPU devices.”
