IBC sees MEDIORNET star continue to rise

X-Link, manufactured by Austrian-based networking and multiplexing specialist MEDIORNET, received the STAR (Superior Technology Award Recipient) Award from the editorial staff of TV Technology Europe magazine at the 2006 IBC convention.
The award builds on MEDIORNET’s success at IBC2005 where its high-speed optical switching product, X-Switch, walked off with three awards - including the prestigious IABM Peter Wayne Award for Innovation.
The STAR Award (Superior Technology Award Recipient) is designed to celebrate and showcase the pre-eminent technological innovations available to the broadcast industry. TV Technology Europe's editor, Mark Hallinger, reviewed a variety of products, examined the technical applications and their overall contribution to the industry, and then chose just 15 winners.
Clemens Czarnecki, head of sales, MEDIORNET, commented: “It’s a remarkable achievement for MEDIORNET to be recognised at IBC for the second year running. Innovation is at the heart of our company culture and our aim is to continually keep pace with changes such as triple-play. If broadcasters and multimedia companies truly hope to meet market demand, what’s required is a single, decentralised and compact infrastructure system to manage all their networking needs.”
Aimed at broadcast, outside broadcast, events and multimedia applications, X-Link enables its clients to interface, route and transport any type of data over a decentralised, secure and robust network.
Key benefits of X-Link and X-Switch include:
  • Single, integrated system – it integrates video, audio, data and control signals into a single, low-latency and secure network – and importantly without the need for compression
  • Save space – as its systems use intelligent nodes linked by fibre optic cable, and also integrate many of the extra ‘glue’ products, they’re much more space efficient than traditional copper cable solutions
  • Save money – as MEDIORNET solutions are fully integrated, broadcasters don’t need lots of extra devices, a separate transport system or additional matrices.
  • Scalable – easy and intuitive to operate, they’re scalable from a single switch to a large, meshed wide area network (WAN) spanning many hundreds of miles. They also enable multiplex network signalling and not point-to point networking like competitive systems.
  • Modular – its systems are modular so they can be reconfigured after each event or application.
  • Future-proof – they’re designed for the future and have multi-channel audio, computer graphic interfacing, and integration for third party vendors built in.
X-Link will be shipping from the first quarter of 2007.
Based in Vienna, MEDIORNET GmbH is an industry-leading producer of field-proven low-latency modular switching and fibre-optic transport systems for broadcast, events and multimedia applications.
