Leitch NEXIO Tapped by Golf Channel

Florida-based Golf Channel recently bought Leitch's NEXIO transmission server system to provide 16 channels of feeds to affiliates across the United States, Canada, Japan and the U.K.

"We chose the NEXIO server system because it offers flexibility to upgrade and add mirrored storage to protect assets, as well as add other channels for back-up purposes at our teleport," Golf Channel's Director of Engineering Erv Vanags said.

Vanags also said another factor in the decision to go with the NEXIO server system was because it could record IMX video, and the facility is based on the IMX50 video standard.

NEXIO supports multiple compression formats in both standard and high-definition, industry-standard control protocols, third-party file formats and ASI interface.
