TV Markíza needed a new simple efficient solution for its HD on-location multi-camera setups

Slovakian private TV station, TV Markíza, is using Stryme's 2U 12 HD channel Genesix VideoServer V7. TV Markiza will use the new VideoServer to simplify its OB van productions of sports, news and live programmes.

 

For HD productions, TV Markíza demands a great deal of on-location multi-camera setups. Speed and simplicity, efficiency and flexibility as well as maximum usability and reliability are top priorities for streamlining workflows. Stryme's seventh generation ultra-slim 2U GENESIX VideoServer with 12 HD channels (8 ingest, 4 output) was thought to meet all these needs. The solution is also optimised for the confined spaces in OB vans. 

Genesix VideoServer's key features aim to boost the performance of multi-cam Ingest workflows. To simplify and optimise editing, synchronised recordings from several camera settings (simultaneous multi-cam Ingest) are copied in parallel to an external NAS storage, using a Transfer While Capture function. Capture enables users to keep up the suspense of live moments by delivering clips quickly.

A new AutoNaming function automatically names and categorises clips and camera settings in logically structured directories and sub-directories. Editors can more easily find clips needed for editing, re-sequencing, post-production highlight cuts, etc. AutoNaming also makes easier to set up and customise individual user profiles and reuse clips at a later stage or for other productions. For efficient Multi-Cam Ingest, all eight grouped ingest channels are started simultaneously.

“Our goal was to offer TV Markíza a simplified operation with even more mobile possibilities. That is why we were very happy to work in tandem with Elvia-Pro to optimally integrate the Genesix VideoServer and realise our very first project in Slovakia. TV Markíza now benefits from a sophisticated, all-in-one failsafe solution that ensures uninterrupted live broadcasting at a reasonable price," said Stryme CEO Goce Zdravkovski.

Milan Kicin, CEO at ELVIA-PRO Slovakia was pleased with the speed and ease of the integration process.: “Genesix has truly exceeded our expectations. The system’s technological precision, its user friendliness, and the simple, yet intuitive multi-cam Ingest functions make live HD productions child’s play. It’s the ideal choice for broadcast studios on the move!”
