Riyadh television deploys Quartz router

Riyadh Television Station is undertaking a major router upgrade at its premises to enable more efficient handling of its facilities. The routing infrastructure for the upgrade will be sourced from UK-based manufacturer Quartz.

The TV station's MCR is being upgraded with a Quartz Q256 Serial video router with embedded audio to route digital signals for two news studios, a TV theatre plus several production studios, two continuities and nine non-linear edit suites.

The router will handle satellite feeds and fibre channels as well as the customary VTRs, video servers and monitoring feeds. With redundancy options, integral monitoring and full diagnostic features, the Q256 router is ideal for such central routing applications. Riyadh TV's system is configured as 160x224 and can be expanded in the same 16U frame to 256x256. It is also field-expandable to 1024 x 1024 by adding additional frames. The system includes redundant controllers and power supplies. Quartz also provided a number of smaller monitoring and data routers as part of the package.

The TV station's two news studios will be equipped with Quartz Q32 serial digital video routers. The entire solution will be designed and managed by UK technology integration services company, EML-TL Ltd.
