Omroep Zeeland Deploys Axon's Master Control SynMC
Omroep Zeeland, founded in 1990, is the broadcaster of the Dutch province Zeeland and is already for many years one of the best viewed and listened to regional broadcasters of the Netherlands. Omroep Zeeland shows the many faces the province Zeeland has on internet, television and radio. It broadcasts audio and video 24/7 and strives for constant high quality broadcasts. Because Omroep Zeeland always operated without a Master Control part of their production environment was constantly in use. In order to operate more efficiently a Master Control was crucial. Axon’s master control (SynMC) played an important role is this. The final situation has led to a cost reduction and improvement of the quality and continuity.
Omroep Zeeland turned to Axon for its master control requirements because the known reliability and stability of the Axon products.
Through one of its channel partners, D&MS, AXON supplied the Synapse-based SynMC master control module together with AXON's monitoring and control software Cerebrum. The combination of SynMC and Cerebrum enables Omroep Zeeland to fulfil its master control requirements against a lower cost than previously and with a far easier use, but still with the same high quality and stability it was used to. The installed system also has a high redundancy and is equipped for manual override.
"When we wanted to install a master control system we turned to Axon because of their proven stability and reliability of their products", says Alex Bogaert project manager Media and ICT at Omroep Zeeland. "Our system integrator D&MS integrated the Axon products with our other products to facilitate our master control requirements".
