Leitch is beta testing its NEO VR modular digital video recorder with ITN, one of the largest independent news organizations and provider of news services to three of the largest commercial television channels in the U.K., ITV, Channel Four and Five.
The trials have been taking place since July 2003, and ITN has confirmed orders for three units to date.
ITN will use the NEO VR modular digital video recorder to help produce the background for news bulletins for ITV, Channel Four and Channel Five.
NEO VR records and plays back program material in a variety of applications, including news and mobile sports production, emergency signal playout and clip playback in news edit suites. It can be packaged with any of the other NEO products for a custom-tailored modular solution that maximizes efficiency and optimizes facility space.
