ATG Danmon Secures Contract With European Parliamentary TV Channel

News Image
ATG Danmon has been selected to design, assemble and integrate two mobile video production systems for a European parliamentary TV channel.

"These units will replace old-technology 625-line equipment and allow proceedings to be televised in 1080i high definition," said Project Manager Howard Dixon. "ATG Danmon, being an experienced global systems integrator, won the tender on the basis of our ability to specify and deliver cost-effective high-performance solutions to a deadline. Both systems are designed to meet very tightly specified requirements, each allowing a high degree of production versatility. The resultant units are highly mobile, quick and easy to set up and very logical to operate."

The systems will allow recording and live broadcasting from the various committee rooms located within the government buildings.

Nine Panasonic AK-UB300 HD/UHD multi-purpose cameras and five AWU70B remotely controlled pan/tilt/zoom cameras will also be deployed as part of the project. Each production unit will incorporate a Panasonic camera control panel, a Telemetrics controller for the robotic PTZ cameras, and a Ross Carbonite live production switcher.

Recording will be to an integral Blackmagic HyperDeck Studio which can handle all standard definition and high definition formats up to 1080p30. A 1920 x 1080 resolution 9 inch Sony LCD monitor is being incorporated into each system for quality checking, plus a 27 inch HP EliteDisplay multiview monitor.

Both systems will be housed in mobile broadcast trollies built to ATG Danmon design by Custom Consoles, together with the necessary interfaces and auxiliary equipment such as a Lynx Technik video test generator, Glensound audio ident generator and DBX audio compressor/limiter.
