NEWS ANNOUNCEMENT FROM ATG DANMON
Letchworth, Hertfordshire, UK - ATG Danmon reports continuing growth in demand for systems integration services throughout the broadcast industry as well as associated sectors such as corporate, educational and governmental video production.
"2018 saw ATG Danmon successfully complete a large number of projects," comments Managing Director Russell Peirson-Hagger. "Our year's activities began with the fulfillment of the latest in a series of technical upgrades for the London-based UK studios of Brazilian free-to-air commercial television broadcaster Record TV Network. Introduced to us by Vantec, our Portuguese partner within the Danmon Group, Record TV broadcasts to over 150 countries on five continents including about 80% of the European population. Project included the redesign and wiring of the record tv studio facility plus installation of video routers and signal converters. Also integrated into the record TV production system was audio to PC interfacing, enabling high quality audio communication via Skype TX for Radio. "
"Among other important project developments in Q2 was the modernization of a TV gallery on BBC Scotland in Glasgow, which was awarded the production of bulletin-style news programs. Careful coordination was crucial to ensuring that the daily broadcast schedule could continue as normal was achieved by installing all the required new equipment in a temporary control room, which could be configured and used for staff training before going live. We achieved KVM system, we unloaded and emptied the legacy control room before moving the complete system. a multiscreen display with 55-inch 4K monitor displays, and audio-father control. We also designed and integrated a large control desk configured for use by a five-strong team comprising news editor, teleprompter, producer, director and technical operator. "
"In Q3, we signed a contract to design, assemble and integrate two mobile video production systems for one of Europe's longest-established parliamentary television channels, which will record and broadcast the various committee rooms in the government buildings old-technology 625-line equipment and allow procedures to be televised in 1080i Both systems are designed to meet highly-specific requirements, and are highly qualified to operate. "
"One of London's leading theaters commissioned us to design and integrate a media asset management and archiving system." The theater records many of its performances for relaying theaters around the world. post production and playout An important requirement was the ability to log each performance and add descriptive metadata to allow permanent search of archived content. "
"We also finalized a storage system for a London-based training establishment, enabling its creative media team to archive and access very large amounts of video content quickly and efficiently. Occupying just 4U of space, the system's 16 bays can accommodate 80 drives."
"Projects keeping us occupied during Q4 include the upgrading and modernization of the newsroom for a major UK broadcaster, an SD to HD upgrade for a global television network, plus a new UHD production studio and post suite for a major international corporate."
"2018 was forecast to be the year SDI buckled under pressure from IP. The reality is that IP has simply become another way to get signals from content from one location to another, with obvious attractions for new builds, but less so for the established SD -SDI and HD-SDI broadcasters and support service providers. The industry's eyes should now be on the integration of 4K and potentially 8K into the HD production environment with all the potential that offers lossless HD cutout from higher resolution sources. introduction of regular 8K broadcast in Japan from December 1 proves a sufficient spur for manufacturers to introduce sensibly priced 8K cameras, production equipment and displays.
