Synamedia, the independent video software provider, has announced that the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC)/Radio-Canada has chosen its video network portfolio and expertise to enable CBC’s transition from SDI to IP-based infrastructure amid its relocation to a new broadcast centre in Montreal.
The software transition involves the company’s virtualised Digital Content Manager (DCM) in a SMPTE 2110 IP-based infrastructure and the PowerVu Professional Receiver (D9800).
“We’re thrilled to be CBC’s partner of choice in assisting with the broadcaster’s relocation and transition to IP-based infrastructure,” said Julien Signes, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Video Network at Synamedia. “We take pride in our state-of-the-art technology and exceptional customer service, and this deployment of our video network solutions highlights both. Our team fully understood the challenges that come with migrating and upgrading the systems for a national broadcaster like CBC which has deep roots as Canadians’ trusted news and entertainment source.”
