Australia: Imagine routers for ABC
June 26, 2014
Imagine Communications, a provider of media software and video infrastructure solutions, has won a major contract to replace all video routers in the television service of the Australian Broadcast Corporation (ABC). The national broadcaster will replace existing routers with a flexible, scalable, HD-capable infrastructure centred on Platinum large-scale router solutions and their extensive range of facility signal distribution functionality including fibre input switching, audio management and integrated multiviewers. The contract also includes hundreds of Magellan control panels for accessing the routing platforms’ rich capabilities.
“We are delighted that ABC has selected Imagine Communications for this significant project,” said Joe Khodeir, Senior Vice President for Asia at Imagine Communications. “Routing on a national scale can be a complex technical challenge, and this will be one of the largest router projects of its kind undertaken in the southern hemisphere. The extensive scalability, powerful integrated capabilities and forward-looking design of Platinum routing solutions make them the ideal choice for broadcasters taking a long-term view of their operations.”
