Sport TV Chooses Enterprise SQ Server Based Production System For HD Sports Operations

Sport TV, Portugal's leading sports broadcaster, has just placed an order for an Enterprise sQ server system to enable it to upgrade its operations to HD.
Sport TV produces four premium sports channels; three are distributed via cable, DTH and IPTV platforms in Portugal and one by DTH in all Sub-Saharan Africa.
All ingest and editing of the HD programmes and promos will be carried out entirely within the new Enterprise sQ system. The order marks the first major move in the Portuguese market towards native HD broadcast production.
The new system will comprise a four port sQ 800 server and will have two eQ effects editors integrated in the system. Sport TV already carries out all of its news production on its existing SD Enterprise sQ system.
José M. Mourao, Sport TV's Technical and Operations Director, said: "This is the first step of the planned migration of all our production facilities to HD, in this case made easy by the fact that we can keep the existing Quantel workflow and editing tools."
The system was ordered through Ibertelco, Quantel's representative in Portugal. Joao Pessanham Ibertelco's Managing Director, said: "We are very happy with this first order for an HD system because it shows that the original system installed to support just one SD channel 'grew up' and it is now both a technical platform and a human structure able to broadcast four independent channels, which soon will become five. Sport TV is a winning story and Ibertelco is proud to be part of that success."
