Triangle Television Installs Grass Valley K2

As part of its expansion from Auckland to Wellington, New Zealand regional and cultural broadcaster Triangle Television has installed a Grass Valley K2 Media Server and Media Client system, as well as Grass Valley router and infrastructure products from Thomson.
The order also included Grass Valley ViBE MPEG-2 encoders to provide two-way contribution circuits over IP between New Zealand’s two largest cities.
Triangle Television is New Zealand's first non-commercial, regional TV station and has been broadcasting to the Auckland region since August 1998, in Remuera since March 2004, and on the North Shore from August 2005, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The channel broadcasts on a Government-owned channel and as a public broadcaster, combines access, public service and ethnic television programming into a novel and exciting format.
Triangle Television took the decision to add a Wellington operation earlier this year. The new channel is based around an eight-channel Grass Valley K2 system with storage for 250 hours of content. A multi-layer Grass Valley Triton router and Grass Valley modular products complete the Wellington installation. This configuration will be replicated in Auckland as the original analogue, tape-based system is replaced with a K2 system in the near future. As well as the equipment, Grass Valley provided Triangle Television with systems integration support and a continuing service level agreement for the next three years.
After Astral Media in Canada, Österreichischer Rundfunk (ORF) in Austria, Al Jazeera, and TV5, amongst others, Triangle Television is the latest station to adopt Thomson’s K2 system, fully compatible for HD and available since Q4 2005.
The two centers, in Wellington and Auckland, are linked for program exchange by IP circuits. Grass Valley MPEG-2 ViBE encoders have been supplied to provide the compression and encoding. ViBE platform allows Triangle Television to migrate to MPEG-4 in the future.
