Complete Harris Broadcast ONE integrated solution at Makedonia TV

MakedoniaTV installed a complete Harris Broadcast ONE integrated solution with design and build-out support from AmyDV, Harris Assured Partner for Greece.

The design of the installation called for flexible top quality and state of the art systems combined together to create a tightly integrated whole which could adapt easily to the transitions facing broadcast in the imminent future, fortifying the broadcaster for the future.

AmyDV designed and built the new solution at the company’s central office building at Vrilissia close to Athens airport and shipped the completed and tested system to MakedoniaTV one week ahead of schedule in order to give the operators more “hands on” time with the system.

As it turns out this was a good decision as for commercial reasons the administration requested the on air date be brought forward to the beginning instead of middle of June 2013.

Indeed the team from AmyDV delivered the project which went on air on the 3rd of June 2013.

“discussing the project, it very quickly became clear that the engineers at AmyDV where the right choice and discussing with them that Harris Broadcast solutions where the best of the choices available to us,” said Mr Arvanitides of MakedoniaTV. “we needed a solution with no compromise in picture quality, obviously reliable, flexible enough to handle our workflows which include sharing devices between the two operations and capable to handle any possible upgrade path in the future. Harris and AmyDV both understood the possible futures of our industry and were for me a clear choice for a partner in the challenging years to come. AmyDV managed in a very short while to build a solution specific to our needs, in a timeframe shorter than agreed with more features more training and more support than agreed! Even at the installation and cabling level the detail of thinking which will make servicing and maintenance simpler and which happened so easily was impressive.”

At the heart of the new facility is a Harris Broadcast Platinum™ router with integrated HView™ SX Pro multiviewer.  This, alongside various 6800+™ modular processing systems, ensures reliable signal processing and monitoring across the entire facility.

The Harris Broadcast Platinum router broke industry barriers as the first to offer genuine dual-path routing, allowing video and audio to be contained in the same device without losing signal paths.  HView SX Pro — easily the industry’s most scalable, highest-density multiviewer — delivers the exceptional quality and flexibility of today’s most advanced multiviewers in a smaller, smarter design.

“We recognize that every broadcaster in the world is different, and we aim to offer flexible solutions which will meet each customer’s real operational and commercial needs,” said David Chalkidis, manager of AmyDV, Harris Broadcast Partner for Greece.  “Working with Harris Broadcast, we were able to build a solution for MakedoniaTV that meets each of their specific needs and is cost-effective, robust and highly reliable.  We were also able to deliver the technology quickly and on budget.”

The facility, now on-air, also incorporates a range of Harris Broadcast master control, graphics video server and automation solutions to enhance the on-air look across all channels.  These systems include IconMaster™ master control switcher and IconLogo™ high-definition channel branding system, Nexio Volt II Video servers, all controlled under Harris ADC™ Automation.
