ATG Broadcast Completes HD MCR For Associated Press

ATG Broadcast has completed a large-scale project for The Associated Press as a key element in the organisation’s global transition to high-definition operation. The contract centres on a new HD master control room (MCR). Located in Camden, London, the MCR is the international hub of global video operation. It serves Associated Press clients in many countries as well as linking with a global network of news bureau.
“The new MCR is part of our HD infrastructure upgrade, providing a state of the art video infrastructure for AP’s video operations” explained AP Technology Manager, Global Video, Peter Watson. “The control room provides enhanced video monitoring and ergonomic workstations for the operational team. ATG Broadcast was a logical choice for the project given its successful track record in designing and installing comparable systems for major broadcasters in many countries.”
“With organisations of the calibre of Associated Press making the transition to high-definition, 1080-line is now clearly the benchmark resolution for broadcasting,” commented ATG Broadcast Managing Director Graham Day. “We designed a complete multi-seat MCR and transmission facility that can accommodate five operators plus a supervisor. Work on the system began in May when prefabrication commenced at ATG’s premises. The MCR went live in October as scheduled. It is fully equipped for 1.5 gigabit/s operation but with a core that can easily be upgraded to 3 gigabit/s as or when required. The project includes connection to existing architecture and migration of live services to the new area. This has been a challenging and rewarding project for ATG which is pleased to be part of AP’s global upgrade plans to HD.”
