Axon Services Sochi Broadcasts

News Image
Netherlands-based broadcast infrastructure providers Axon Digital Design is currently servicing the Sochi broadcasts with its signal processing, multiview and broadcast monitoring & control equipment.
Russian broadcast systems company ANO Sports Broadcasting has 12 3Gb/s capable OB trucks and 12 support trucks in use on site in Sochi.
Axon modular signal processing product line Synapse will be used in a broad range of applications within the OB trucks, including the up, down and cross conversion of 3G signals.
Axon modules will support the distribution of video and audio signals throughout the OB truck as well as the embedding and de-embedding of audio signals.
Also, Axon miniaturised technology will control the synchronising, legalising and keying operations within the fleet. Finally, AXON’s SynView will form the standard multiviewing platform on the trucks.
One of the trucks is configured as a large master control room with five discrete areas providing feed/line control, supervisor area, server control, audio control and a main technical area. A second support truck contains a complete flight-case based eight-camera production unit.
Next to the trucks the Sochi mobile MCR is executed with Axon's SynView multiviewers and amongst others the Synapse up/down/cross converter GXG110. The module features a cross-input audio shuffler and ProcAmp. 2x8 channels out of any of the 16 embedded audio channels can be de-embedded and shuffled. This means that combining embedded audio from input 1 and from input 2 in the SD outputs is possible.
In three of the stadiums AXON's signal processing is used for handling video to fibre conversion. The Synapse BFM88 used is a passive optical multiplexing/demultiplexing module onto single mode fibres. The module allows you to multiplex or de-multiplex eight wavelengths onto or from one fibre with use of CDWM technology.
