German ZDF Chooses Marina For 3sat Playout

ZDF (Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen) has chosen Pebble Beach Systems' Marina automation control to take the helm over the playout of 3sat.
3sat is a collaboration between ZDF, ARD, ORF and SRG, broadcasting from Mainz to serve German-speaking audiences across Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
This is now the second channel at ZDF to be transferred to Marina control. ZDF and Pebble Beach Systems will continue to work together as the project evolves, with ZDFneo and ZDFinfo channels scheduled come under the control of Marina automation in the coming months.
Pebble Beach Systems’ Managing Director, Peter Hajittofi, announced the news yesterday.
"I’m confident that over the coming phases of the project at ZDF we will only build on our formidable reputation for satisfying one of the most prestigious broadcast customers in the world," he said.
"The installation at ZDF will incorporate approximately 40 operator positions that require controlled access across multiple systems, making it an ideal fit for Marina’s distributed architecture. Marina provides a robust platform to support the most demanding operational requirements."
The 3sat installation features Nexio servers under VDCP and API control, nearline attached storage from Isilon, Evertz EMC switchers and keyers, router control via BFE and logos, subtitling and graphics from Miranda, FAB and Viz. In addition, Marina is controlling Sony and Panasonic VTRs for ingest and playout, and other sundry devices via Pebble Beach Systems’ own generic driver.
