Projects concluded by Studiotech in 2014 and 2015
In 2015, Studiotech Belgium designed, developed and delivered an ultramodern HD production control room at the Eucalyptus Centre in Algiers, an EPTV (public broadcaster) site in Algeria.
The 3G production control room comprises: thirteen Sony optical fibre cameras, a Sony 4 ME video mixer, two Yamaha mixers, an Evertz EMR 3G modular video matrix and two Grass Valley, 2-channel 3G broadcast servers.
Some features include: overall patch-free video design, communication via an Evertz matrix, modular and redundant, fully integrated visualisation multiviewer system and a video matrix, a reliable system enabling the continuation of broadcasts in all circumstances with the possibility of expansion to manage a second studio.
In 2014, Studiotech Belgium delivered all the audiovisual production equipment for the coverage of the XVth Francophonie Summit. Together with RTS (Senegalese Radio and Television), Studiotech Belgium ensured media coverage of the Francophonie Summit held in Dakar on 29 and 30 November 2014, in the presence of many Senegalese and overseas public figures.
This technological and logistical challenge was achieved in record time by Studiotech Belgium.
This huge project fulfilled in a period of 8 weeks included an OB van equipped with 10 HD camera on a trailer, a DSNG vehicle and a radio car, all equipped with generators.
Studiotech Belgium also delivered two complete mobile studios in 4 camera configurations, each for live coverage, 16 ENG sets and 10 microwave links in order to allow journalists easy point-to-point transmissions. Last, but not least, Studiotech conceived and installed all the non-linear workflow.
Subsequently, RTS was provided with this entire audio and video infrastructure in order to modernise their facilities.
In 2014, within the framework of the technological development of TM2, the second channel of ORTM, Studiotech Belgium supplied, installed and commissioned production equipment as well as the construction of a building in Bamako to accommodate the new installations.
The concept and selection of equipment were entirely managed by Studiotech Belgium and the whole project was completed in a record time of six months, including commissioning and training of Malian operators.
One of the many technological requirements of the project was the integration of a production control room and a final control room in one place that can be used both for direct transmissions and the preparation of transmissions for the distribution loop.
The new audiovisual infrastructure covers a studio including manual and robotic cameras with stage lighting, a control room, a news room, a CAR room, a Protools editing unit, two NLE editing rooms, numerous production servers and a sound booth in addition to a plethora of mobile production equipment.
The latest and best performing computer and audiovisual techniques were implemented by Studiotech Belgium to ensure 24/7 broadcasting and production in high definition standard.
Studiotech Belgium, a renowned integrator in Africa, chose the best manufacturers in the field, including Evertz Microsystems.
