Danish parliament votes for SSL Gravity
An SSL Gravity MAM system coupled with a Snell automation system will be instrumental in bringing Danish parliament TV to the digital terrestrial network when the national digital switchover occurs on Nov. 1.
Gravity will take feeds from a network of cameras placed throughout the parliament complex and record them to a Gravity media network central server via six Gravity encoders. Each encoder has 24 hours of storage to backup the central storage from Rorke Data integrated with Gravity.
The rough-cut clips are passed to the seven output decoders, at which point Apple Final Cut Pro (FCP) craft editors can create news and highlights packages. Craft editors can also access and edit media directly via their FCP edit clients, and Gravity automatically loads all media clips specified by the Snell automation transmission playlists to the output decoders in the correct format.
