German commercial television conglomerate ProSiebenSat.1 Media AG is working with distributor Teracue AG to upgrade components in its Berlin facility.
ProSiebenSat.1 Group has two main facilities: one in Berlin and the other in Munich. The Berlin facility houses the main studios for live recording of television programs and production, and is where news and TV programming is produced for the complete broadcast chain. Most content is created for entertainment channel Sat.1 and news channel N24.
Teracue AG sold the television company a new Platinum router from Harris. The high-capacity, small-footprint Harris Platinum routing switchers provide high-quality signal routing up to 256in x 256in 15RU and 512in x 512in 28RU and support a mix of any signal — video and audio, from analog to HD — all in the same frame. Built for maximum reliability in even the most harsh, 24/7 operation, Harris Platinum is intended for network, local broadcaster, mobile production, cable, telco, military, government and corporate applications — any environment that requires routing of a large number of signals.
The Harris Platinum router serves as the backbone of the Berlin facility and is also used for live signals being routed to the Munich facility for playout.
