SeaChange International’s Broadcast group has announced that Telenord has redesigned its ingest and play-to-air system around SeaChange MediaServer (MSV) 1200 standalone edge server. The redesign was done without Telenord having to revise its existing processes.
This new SeaChange-based design ticks Telenord’s requirements for compact equipment that’s able to provide a total of eight output channels, where every channel is Standard Definition (SD) native, and can be upgraded anytime to High Definition (HD). Additionally, Telenord required a total of two input channels in SD, upgradeable to HD.
The MSV1200 at Telenord is said to be equipped with an internal raw storage of 8TB and will receive media files from non-linear editing stations via FTP. The same files will be processed by the SeaChange MediaGateway software embedded into the MSV prior to the playout process. The playout solution is operated with the Italian SI-Media automation.
Marcello Dellepiane, Vice President of EMEA Sales at SeaChange Broadcast said, “Telenord airs more than 10 hours of live content everyday. SeaChange Broadcast understands how crucial it is to keep their architecture updated without interrupting business. Moreover, the MSV 1200 offers them a flexible and scalable solution for transitioning to HD. ”
SeaChange Broadcast is becoming XOR Media, an independent technology company that will support existing SeaChange Broadcast customers and deliver transformative media storage and codecs solutions to the market.
