DPG Media in Belgium is in the process of completing an all-new ST2110-based IP production facility at Medialaan in Vilvoorde, dedicated to its entertainment offering (vtm, the leading private TV channel in the Flemish part of Belgium, Q2 and others). Concurrently, DPG Media is putting the finishing touches to an all-new broadcast facility in Antwerp for its news services.
Given Lawo’s proven track record regarding open-standard IP-based remote and studio broadcast production solutions, DPG Media selected Lawo for all audio-, video- and control-over-IP tasks, the aim being to enable agile remote operation in various configurations.
Designed for true remote production capabability, part of the specified components will be housed in flightcases and used both on DPG Media’s Medialaan premises and all over Belgium during outside broadcast events.
Video distribution, multiviewer generation and glue will be provided by Lawo’s V__matrix platform equipped with thirty-three C100 FPGA processing blades for flexible, multi-purpose operation anywhere on DPG Media’s IP network.
