ERT invests in Avitech multiviewers
As part of an upgrade of its operation, Greek public broadcaster ERT (Ελληνική Ραδιοφωνία Τηλεόραση, Hellenic Radio & Television) has invested in more than 50 high definition (HD) and standard definition (SD) multiviewer modules from Avitech to visually monitor a variety of studio, master control, satellite, and DTT signal feeds.

The systems were supplied by KEM Electronics, Avitech's Greek representative.

ERT will utilise the Avitech HD multviewers for the master control and studio control areas of its DTT operation (Sport+, Prisma+, Cine+) as well to monitor satellite feeds at the station. The Avitech SD Multiviewers will be used in the main ERT Analogue Terrestrial channel (NET) Master Control area.

The multiviewers interface with ERT's Pro-Bel routing switchers, allowing the display of a combination of static and dynamic source labels for the multiviewer window's UMDs.

Each Avitech MCC-8004U Multiviewer module supports up to four auto-detect HD-SDI, SD-SDI / composite video inputs, and provide a high quality output resolution up to 1920 x 1200. Cascading modules allow the display of the desired number of sources per monitor. Other features include embedded audio monitoring, parallel and serial tally, exceptionally low power consumption, as well as on-screen alarm indicators for video and audio status.

"Avitech has met all specifications and provided the best price/performance solution in the tender issued by ERT," commented Michalitsis, director of technical development at ETR.
