Kingston University orders ATG streaming system

ATG Broadcast, one of Europe's leading systems integrators, has supplied a complete mobile audio/video LAN, WAN and internet streaming pod to Kingston University.
Fully self-contained, it includes two ATG 500RM encoding units, a control keyboard and 1U slide-and-tilt 15 inch TFT LCD monitor together with an integrated keyboard video and mouse switch. The entire system is housed in a 13U rack which in turn is fully shock-proofed inside a robust aluminium flight case. The case is mounted on a detachable wheeled base unit for easy transportation and mobility. This allows the streaming station to capture, encode and transmit live or recorded television content from any part of the campus with a network connection point.
Each of the ATG 500 RM streaming encoders incorporates a 250 Gbyte serial hard disk server utilising the latest 3.4 GHz Intel 4 processor, a DVD re-writer and two Gbytes of DDR RAM.
The software is specifically configured to Kingston University's requirements and can generate Windows Media or Real Video files. An integral Osprey-500 DV card enables high quality video/audio capture from both analogue and DV sources. Each card contains a hardware de-interlacing filter which significantly improves video quality when capturing standard PAL sources. The system accepts composite video, S Video, DV (via IEEE 1394), balanced or unbalanced stereo audio, professional digital audio (AES/EBU), and consumer digital audio (S/P-DIF).
Justin Howard, multimedia and web analyst at Kingston University, said: "ATG listened to our requirements and understood exactly what we needed. The system they have produced is compact, versatile and highly reliable. It was fully tested by ATG under standard soak conditions and in our operational environment prior to delivery."
