ABS Broadcast Selects Trilogy For New Playout Centre

Trilogy Communications, provider of digital intercom systems and Master Reference Generators, has announced that ABS Broadcast, one of the largest independently owned playout and television facilities companies in Europe, has selected Trilogy's Mentor XL Master Reference Generators as part of the development of a brand new 32 channel playout centre in Park Royal, London.
Supplied by specialist Broadcast and Professional Services integrator VSC Design, the installation of the Mentor XL's will play an integral role in ABS's playout centre's as they manage the transmission of many major television channels across the globe.
Mentor XL was selected by ABS Broadcast as it was the only Sync Pulse Generator that was able to meet all the desired functionality whilst keeping to the required budget. Key to the simplicity and flexibility of the Mentor XL system is its innovative architecture, which avoids the need for numerous option boards or factory upgrades by allowing optional features to be activated via a standard IP connection.
The units are equipped with a range of options including; SD and HD Test Signals, Tri-Level Sync, Timecode, and Vector, the browsable application that allows remote configuration and monitoring of all system parameters. With the Mentor XL SD/HD references and test signals are generated simultaneously in any video standard, and with independent timing, ideally suited to the management of a complex multichannel operation.
The Mentor XLs were also specified with GPS receivers which allow for all video, timecode and audio signals to be locked to a single stable reference. The other key benefit of using GPS as the reference source is that it also allows the Mentor XL to act as an NTP server for all other PC based broadcast equipment, establishing an ultra-resilient and synchronous video and audio environment.
