Rogers Picks Quantel For Sportsnet Facility
Canada’s Rogers Media has chosen a Quantel Enterprise sQ server-based production system for its Canadian cable television sports specialty channel, Rogers Sportsnet.

The Rogers Media system comprises eight sQ servers with 1,000 hours of HD storage. Eighty-four sQ Views, 14 sQ edit software and six sQ edit plus systems, two sQ records and four sQ plays round out the news production system. System integration will be provided by Applied Electronics.

“One of our prerequisites was that the system had to support 120 users at all times,” said Frank Bruno, vice president, TV engineering, Rogers Media. “It had to be robust and possess built-in back-up mechanisms, and it had to have the toolsets for all these applications to be simple to use. Quantel met all of our criteria.”

Rogers Media plans to start rehearsing with the system the first of November. Rogers Sportsnet is seen by 174,000 people a day.
