TAG V.S. Multiviewer Powers Signal Monitoring for 3zero2
3zero2 has selected a TAG Video Systems MCM-9000 Multiviewer and monitoring system to enhance their monitoring capabilities at the company’s playout-MCR facility in Milan.
3zero2’s reputation for delivering the highest-quality production values and services was earned by its unwavering commitment to adopting only cutting-edge technologies for its 6,000+ square meters of studio and production space. The addition of TAG’s IP-based all-software solution running on off-the-shelf hardware further positions 3zero2 as a unique and dynamic company equipped with future-proof technology for maximum flexibility, scalability and poised for growth.
“We were looking for an IP-only solution that ran on off-the-shelf hardware to support our Live Production, MCR and Playout services,” explained Luciano Consigli, 3zero2 Technical director. “We needed a Multiviewer that could support both compressed live streams and uncompressed 2110/2022 streams in one platform. TAG’s ability to provide a complete monitoring solution including signal probing and multi-view visualization in a single software-based solution was a key reason for our choice and a huge advantage for us.
In addition to that, the support from CVE has been very helpful. As our business continues to grow, being able to easily and cost-effectively expand our monitoring capabilities has proved invaluable.”
The system at 3zero2 was designed, installed and supported by TAG’s Italian partner- Communication Video Engineering (CVE). CVE installed the TAG MCM-9000 IP-based Multiviewer to initially monitor more then 50-channels running on Dell COTS servers. The scalable, software-only platform, optimized with support for all emerging standards allows them to quickly expand in terms of capacity, variety of signals, and provides a path to easily add applications such as OTT and distribution to playout and production as the need arises.
“We all know how competitive the live production and playout landscape is, and providing a premium quality service to our customers is crucial,” says Luca Catalano, CEO CVE. “Our use of TAG’s Multiviewer and monitoring technology is central for our proposition in this landscape.“
