The UK’s Kingston University uses a streaming system from ATG Broadcast.
European systems integrator, ATG Broadcast, has supplied a complete mobile audio/video LAN, WAN and Internet streaming pod to Kingston University, UK. Fully self-contained, it includes two ATG 500RM encoding units, a control keyboard and 1U slide-and-tilt 15in TFT LCD monitor with an integrated keyboard video and mouse switch.
The entire system is housed in a 13U rack, which in turn is fully shock-proofed inside a robust aluminum flight case. The case is mounted on a detachable wheeled base unit for easy transportation and mobility. This allows the streaming station to capture, encode and transmit live or recorded television content from any part of the campus with a network connection point.
The software is specifically configured to Kingston University's requirements and can generate Windows Media or Real Video files. An integral Osprey-500 DV card enables high quality video/audio captures from both analog and DV sources. Each card contains a hardware de-interlacing filter that significantly improves video quality when capturing standard PAL sources. The system accepts composite video, S- xideo, DV (via IEEE 1394), balanced or unbalanced stereo audio, professional digital audio (AES/EBU), and consumer digital audio (S/P-DIF).
