New control desk installed by ATG Broadcast at TV4 Sweden.
TV4 Sweden has chosen ATG Broadcast to equip a new multichannel playout area. TV4 Sweden transmits five channels: TV4, TV4+, TV400, TV4 Film and TV4 Fakta. Four of the channels are transmitted from TV4's headquarters in Stockholm. TV4 also operates Sweden's largest network of local television stations.
The contract covers the relocation of TV4, TV4 Plus, TV400 and TV4 Film to a new multichannel playout area. Three control desks are being installed, each desk being capable of handling any of the channels. A single operator can control up to ten channels from one desk, depending on the complexity of the channel configuration.
The new playout area is much more space-efficient than the previous facilities. Each control desk incorporates an Evertz multiviewer feeding a horizontal row of three Sony 16:9 LCD picture monitors located above three 19in PC control screens. Pebble Beach automation replaces earlier systems.
