Quantel technology brings quality and speed to air for Portugal’s Sport TV

As part of a facilities upgrade to HD production, Sport TV, one of Portugal’s leading sports broadcasters, has ordered an Enterprise sQ server system from Quantel. Sport TV produces four premium sports channels; three are distributed via cable, DTH and IPTV platforms in Portugal and one by DTH in all of sub-Saharan Africa. The order marks the first major move in the Portuguese market toward native HD broadcast production.

All ingest and editing of the HD programs and promos will be carried out entirely within the new Quantel Enterprise sQ system. The system will include a four-port sQ 800 server, with two integrated eQ effects editors. Previous to the new purchase, Sport TV produced all of its news production on an existing SD Enterprise sQ system. This made the move to the new HD system easy and familiar for the staff.

The system was ordered through Ibertelco, Quantel’s representative in Portugal. The original sQ system was installed to support just one SD channel and has since been expanded to broadcast four independent channels, which soon will become five, according to João Pessanha, Ibertelco’s managing director.
