Knowing full well the massive demand for high quality delivery of Winter Olympics action in a country with huge participation in the events, Broadcast Network Connections (BNC) is deploying an Elements NAS to establish a steady connection for transmission in Austria.

elements 13Feb2018The 60-bay plus JBOD expansion between onsite editing in PyeongChang and producers in Vienna is designed to ensure that BNC supports ingest and content management ensuring up-to-the-minute coverage for delivery to Austrian public service broadcaster ORF for during the global sports event.

Raw video footage, provided by several electronic newsgathering (ENG) teams (XDCAM), will be streamed through EVS XT[3] servers to the Elements network attached storage server to be edited by a team of four editors onsite in South Korea, using Adobe Premiere. While the editing suites are connected via 1 GbE, the EVS servers will be utilising a 10GbE connection to the NAS.

During the entire event the NAS will be connected to the media server at ORF, enabling the producers in Vienna to provide additional content for download from the home-base to be included in the live edit. In addition, edited video content will be transmitted on local South Korea TV stations, and simultaneously be transmitted via Signiant/PCMS directly to the media server at ORF for airing in Austria.

"This project is a prime example for the versatility and flexibility Elements provides," said company CEO AndrĂ© Kamps. "Being completely open for collaboration with other systems and applications, while enabling users to work even from the most distant locations, Elements opens up entirely new possibilities for remote workflows."
