Timeline Television uses Axon Cerebrum Control in its new IP 4K Outside Broadcast vehicle
Axon Digital Design’s Cerebrum Monitoring and Control system will form the backbone of a new IP-based Outside Broadcast vehicle that is being launched in May by Timeline Television, a provider of outside broadcast, post production and studio based services to major UK networks.
The new 32-camera triple-expanding truck will deliver 4K HDR uncompressed broadcasts, using SAM IP infrastructure, a production switcher and multiviewer, Sony 4K cameras and EVS servers, all controlled and monitored by Axon’s Cerebrum platform via a single user interface. The vehicle will also feature a range of Axon 4K infrastructure products and hardware panels.
The company already uses Cerebrum in its main UK broadcast centre to control all the equipment in its programme chain. It has also installed Cerebrum across its fleet of OB trucks and flyaway kits.
“The Cerebrum control platform integrates seamlessly with the rest of the solutions we employ and always delivers to the highest standards,” says Daniel McDonnell, Managing Director of Timeline Television. “We have complete confidence that Cerebrum will provide agile and robust control on-board our new 4K IP truck and will support a hassle-free, flexible creative workflow.”
Jan Eveleens, CEO of Axon adds: “Axon systems are so easy to integrate and operate that Timeline Television always includes our equipment every time they launch something new. The reason for this is simple: the people who need to use it every day are happy with the functionality that it delivers and both the time and production costs it saves.” And he concludes: “Axon takes pride in the fact that leading OB providers like Timeline rely upon our solutions to deliver high quality live broadcasts to audiences worldwide. We’re with them every step of the way – from their next production to their next technology upgrade.”
