BVE 2016 show preview
ATG Danmon UK is a media and broadcast systems integrator based in Letchworth, Hertfordshire, providing solutions to a global market. Exhibiting on stand H52 at BVE 2016, the company will promote its range of systems planning, design, installation, configuration, commissioning and post-installation support capabilities.
"BVE2016 sets off a very interesting year in the broadcast sector given the rapid technical advances taking place at almost every level," comments ATG Danmon UK Managing Director Russell Peirson-Hagger. "As a systems integrator, we need to ensure we are tuned to the latest advances in hardware, software and operational workflow. Our customers rely on us to make the right technological choices for them in order to gain maximum benefit from their investment.
"4K is fast becoming the required standard for programme production given the affordability of latest-generation cameras and displays. At least as significant as the introduction of 4K over the next few years will be the increasing use of IP across areas of broadcast infrastructure that have been dominated by SDI. IP clearly has some current benefits to offer but there are still plenty of reasons why we will see the continued use of SDI for the foreseeable future. Rather than IP completely replacing SDI, it is clear that a hybrid approach currently offers the best of both technologies. We can help our customers deploy the systems that best meet their requirements.
"Many channels now offer catch-up television services as a routine element of their activity, along with web-based news, programme guides and over-the-top supplementary programme feeds. A key element of our role is to support our customers with these new delivery options and to ensure they can operate as efficiently as possible in an industry which demands high productivity as well as creative efficiency.
"The ATG Danmon team has over 20 years of experience in designing, producing, installing, commissioning and maintaining systems that give our customers the best possible return on investment."
