ATG Danmon Eyes The Future Of Broadcasting

News Image
Representatives from broadcast systems integration specialist ATG Danmon headed to NAB in April.

Two companies from the Danmon Group exhibited on the show floor: Marquis Broadcast at booth SL9030 in South Lower and NTP Technology in Central Hall with reseller plus24 on booth C3851. Guests were also welcomed at the Danmon Group suite in the Westgate hotel adjacent to the Las Vegas Convention Centre.

"Major trade shows have always been useful for face-to-face discussions with suppliers and for comparing the merits of the latest technical developments," says managing director Russell Peirson-Hagger. "There is much to be gained from hands-on evaluations of the latest hardware, direct demonstrations of new software and discussions with the senior product developers.

"The show continued to reflect the push towards IP-based infrastructure. IP has been promoted by many manufacturers for several years and we have now seen the first deployments. As a systems integrator it is important that we stay well-informed in order to advise on the right solution for specific customer requirements. 4K UHD also continued to be a major theme and has already become a significant element of our systems integration activity."

"There was still a lot of talk about how IP solidifies into practical advantages compared with SDI," adds Head of Systems Integration, Jonathan Hughes. "Standards are still a sticking point. Broadcasters are awaiting the ratification of the next SMPTE recommendation which sets the roadmap for the IP open standards being promoted by the AIMS consortium."
