Quartz seals deal with Belgium's Public Broadcaster, VRTVRT selects Quartz multi-format Xenon router for its signal processing functions (September 16, 2005)
Belgium's Public Broadcaster for the Flemish community, Vlaamse Radio-en Televisieomroep (VRT) shook hands with Dutch Systems Solutions Company, N.I.C.E at IBC following an order they placed with UK manufacturer Quartz Electronics last month for a system that will handle more international EBU signals. N.I.C.E are Quartz distributor for Benelux.
A 128x96 serial digital video router from the Quartz Xenon range will replace a 64x64 SDI router previously supplied by Quartz, to cope with expansion at the Brussels-based facility.
Patrick Van der Borgh, Head of Support TX-LCT has been impressed with Quartz since the purchase of it's first system in 2002: ?The company has a good reputation throughout the industry and our experience with Quartz equipment and support services has always been excellent.
Van der Borgh continues: ?The Xenon is an easily configured router with great redundancy features for reliability, and it has all the flexibility we need for future developments because of its unique SPT modules.
SPTs are optional plug-in modules that add powerful features inside the multi-format router saving cost and space.
While most systems require external equipment for functionality like channel branding, multi-channel viewers and line/frame synchronisation, audio shuffling and even master control, Xenon can house all of these options, and more, under one roof. What's more, the plug-in SPT modules have the capacity to be reprogrammed to perform different levels of functionality and new tasks without having to physically replace the hardware. Xenon's new Multi-Viewer SPT module and the Xenon Audio roadmap were seen for the first time at IBC.
VRT stands for "Vlaamse Radio- en Televisieomroep" (the Flemish Radio and Television Company), a public sector public limited company. VRT is the public broadcaster of the Flemish community in Belgium. VRT provides a high-quality selection of programmes in the sectors information, culture, education and entertainment.
