Retevision, Spain’s national carrier for commercial television, recently completed a large project for a new control room, installing Zandar FusionPro MultiViewers at the core of its broadcast facility. Sited at the Telepuerto Internacional de Arganda (TIAR) near Madrid is the largest broadcast contribution and distribution center in Spain.
The station manages feeds for all the company’s satellite operations in Europe and the Americas through a huge complex, supervised and controlled in a new central control room. Ibérica de Componentes was appointed as the turnkey contractor for the new control room facilities, installing 10 Zandar FusionPro MultiViewer systems, which display more than 160 video signals and four VGA input signals.
Each of the compact 3RU FusionPro systems can display up to 26 source signals and is managed from the Z Manager Java-based client/server application, which allows Retevision to set up and edit the output display characteristics from a centralized control position. The resulting multi-image outputs are fed to 50in Mitsubishi rear projectors, forming a video wall for operators to view all network signals passing through the international teleport. This Zandar system is mission-critical for the Retevision as the majority of Spanish broadcasters use this facility for their satellite distribution and contribution feeds.
Ibérica de Componentes’ turnkey contract included delivery, installation and commissioning of the complete system.
