ATG Danmon has completed the latest in a series of technical upgrades for the London-based UK studios of Brazilian free-to-air commercial television broadcaster Record TV Network. The services provided include the redesign and wiring of the Record TV studio facility in addition to the installation of AJA and Blackmagic video routers, and signal converters. Also integrated into the Record TV production system was audio to PC interfacing, enabling high quality audio communication via Skype TX for Radio.
“We contribute a wide range of programme content supplementing the output from our parent channel in São Paulo,” said Record TV’s UK administrative coordinator, Rui Reis. “These include news, interviews, documentaries and entertainment. This latest update expands the versatility of our production infrastructure. ATG Danmon has proved a very good technology partner, able to work alongside our studio team without disturbing normal programme operations and to support us when needed. The systems installed have improved our operational efficiency and output quality.”
“Record TV was introduced to us by Vantec, our Portuguese partner within the Danmon Group,” added ATG Danmon’s MD, Russell Peirson-Hagger. “We were very pleased to assist in upgrading and expanding their London facility.”
Founded in 1953, Record TV broadcasts to over 150 countries on five continents. It transmits via cable, satellite and internet, reaching about 80% of the European population and also reaches Africa, Asia and the Americas. Based in São Paulo, it specialises in programmes reflecting Brazilian culture and society and is today the longest-established Brazilian television broadcaster. In 2015, it became the pioneer Latin American TV network to produce programmes in 4K. In the UK it is the only Portuguese channel broadcasting on the Sky+ HD platform.
