Beijing Radio and Television Network (BRTN) is a new radio and television agency in China that provides millions of viewers worldwide with news, sports, and general entertainment programming. Launched in January 2014 by Beijing Media Network (BMN), BRTN distributes content from the 18 member stations of the BMN and also creates original content for broadcast.
BRTN’s state-of-the-art integrated performance hall features a large-scale, panoramic display wall that works with RGB Spectrum’s MediaWall 4200 Display Processors to provide a spectacular backdrop for the programs filmed in the studio. The 7.5 x 42 feet wall is made of laser phosphor display (LPD) tiles from Prysm and is the focal point of the performance hall. The two MediaWall processors driving the wall are used to configure and display video and graphic images with the precision and clarity required for high end television applications.
Inputs to the processor include pre-recorded content and live camera streams from BRTN and BMN servers as well as text, graphics, photos, and videos from PCs to support and enrich programming. A matrix switcher provides each MediaWall processor with up to twelve sources for simultaneous display. These windows can be of any size or configuration. Technicians can quickly change the appearance of the video wall by selecting preset layouts.
Television studio applications require a high-level of stability and redundancy to ensure the continuity of broadcasts. The MediaWall processor was chosen because of its reputation for unsurpassed reliability and stability. According to the integrator, Century Sage System Technologies, the customer was very impressed by the processor’s quick response to signal switching, stable performance, and flexible control options.
Century Sage System Technologies offered these observations: “RGB Spectrum’s processors were a perfect fit for the video broadcast industry, since equipment stability, redundancy and real-time transmission are critical. The flexibility and seamless switching performance of the MediaWall system exceeded the client’s high expectations and we are very satisfied with both the ease of installation and the stellar performance of RGB Spectrum’s products.”
