MOG and Exton enable Siminn to ensure recording of 4 HD 3G-SDI channels of the Premier League
MOG and its partner Exton has been selected by Síminn, the Icelandic Broadcaster, to guarantee the recording of 4 simultaneous HD 3G-SDI channels of the Premier League to fans across Iceland, with a remote software.
Síminn sought to acquire an ingest system to cover its acquisition needs. One of the requirements was to have the media recorded locally, or to their SAN (Storage Area Network), with additional web preview functionality, so they can guarantee a constant overview of the incoming signals.
Considering that the acquisition was for a Live Sports workflow, one of the most crucial requirements was to minimize the editing time, as well as the transferring time of the assets. It was also necessary to provide editing and highlights capability while still recording (edit-while-growing), in order to assure a faster distribution on-the-fly.
MOG’s 4PRO mediaREC software, from the MAM4PRO branch, was chosen to guarantee a broadcast-quality acquisition of 4 HD channels in 3G-SDI. The software can be accessed through a remote html5 UI, thus guaranteeing constant monitoring of the incoming signals.
Each source can have its own separate setup, therefore guaranteeing the correctly synchronized multi-camera playback sequence with all the associated media.
4PRO mediaREC is a video recorder that can support UHD/QFHD/FHD in up to 12 SDI/IP Live video in Avid, OP1a, QT, MP4, XDCAM, XDCAM EX, XAVC, FLV, HLS, MPEG-DASH, WebM, MPEG-TS, Matroska, NDI and IMF formats. It is available as a software-only, or in a compact 2RU rack, depending on the customer’s needs.
