Timeline Television Invests In Axon Cerebrum System

Timeline Television has selected the Cerebrum Monitoring and Control system from Axon Digital Design as the core of its new IP-based OB vehicle.

The new 32-camera triple-expanding truck, which launches in May, will deliver 4K HDR uncompressed broadcasts, using SAM IP infrastructure, a production switcher and multiviewer, Sony 4K cameras and EVS servers – all controlled and monitored by Axon's Cerebrum platform via a single fully customisable user interface. The vehicle will also feature Axon 4K infrastructure products and hardware panels.

Timeline Television already uses Cerebrum in its main UK broadcast centre to control all the equipment in its programme chain. It has also installed Cerebrum across its fleet of OB trucks and flyaway kits.

Many of the broadcast projects delivered by Timeline Television have utilised Cerebrum. This includes the Dubai World Cup. Working with UK-based Racecourse Media Group (RMG), who undertook the production of all 20 of the season's fixtures from Meydan Racecourse, Timeline Television provided all of the technical infrastructure including cameras, horseback reporter cameras, the EVS systems and graphics. It was all controlled and monitored by Cerebrum.

"Our Meydan Racecourse infrastructure includes a large SAM central hybrid matrix that handles all audio and video routing," explained Daniel McDonnell, Managing Director of Timeline Television. "The matrix is controlled by the Axon Cerebrum platform. The operators use both touch screens and hardware panels to perform complexing routing, speeding up the operation. Cerebrum also provides a single interface to control a variety of other broadcast equipment making the whole operation very efficient."

He added: "The Cerebrum control platform integrates seamlessly with the rest of the solutions we employ and always delivers to the highest standards. We have complete confidence that Cerebrum will provide agile and robust control on-board our new 4K IP truck and will support a hassle-free, flexible creative workflow."

Jan Eveleens, CEO of Axon, commented: "Axon systems are so easy to integrate and operate that Timeline Television always includes our equipment every time they launch something new. The reason for this is simple: the people who need to use it every day are happy with the functionality that it delivers and both the time and production costs it saves. Axon takes pride in the fact that leading OB providers like Timeline rely upon our solutions to deliver high quality live broadcasts to audiences worldwide. We're with them every step of the way – from their next production to their next technology upgrade."
