G&D Assigned To Equip BSkyB's Harlequin One

The German manufacturer Guntermann & Drunck GmbH has been assigned with the task of equipping BSkyB's new broadcast facility Harlequin One in West London with KVM extension and switching solutions.
The contract included KVM installations for several hundred servers and desktop computers. G&D’s British partner, Omnio Technologies, supervised the project. At Amsterdam’s upcoming IBC G&D will present an overview of their KVM solutions for broadcast professionals.
The new building is reported, in Europe if not in the world, as being outstanding for its sustainability. Consequently all equipment in use was chosen carefully after extensive evaluation to ensure BSkyB achieved this goal.
The remarkable building allows access to natural daylight and fresh air, views outdoors and across floors. As naturally ventilated studios and offices serve for ideal working conditions for people the aim was to separate them from distracting and emission-intensive computer hardware. That’s when KVM came into play. By implementing this hardware, people thrive from KVM benefits. The multi-platform content production studios became heat and noise-free as computers are stored access protected in free-cooled data rooms. G&D KVM solutions provide for a seamless computer interoperability and efficient workflow environment.
Reducing the environmental footprint was one important topic at BSkyB’s Harlequin studio.
“The need for efficient, reliable technology to reduce the overall energy consumption of BSkyB’s technical facilities made us plan with G&D’s hardware”, said Paul Norton, Managing Director of Omnio Technologies.
“The ease of use of their products, the fact that they are extremely reliable, intuitive and backed by the best technical and after sales support Omnio had experienced gave us no hesitation in recommending that BSkyB implement G&D solutions as the KVM infrastructure within Harlequin One, confidence in our partners is crucial and that’s why we trust in G&D.”
Broadcast professionals are invited to meet the people behind Omnio Technologies and Guntermann & Drunck at this year’s IBC in Amsterdam, from 9th to 13th of September, hall 4, stand 4.B74.
