The MTG channel is the official Rio Olympics 2016 broadcaster for Sweden and is showing selected content in the ultra high definition format. It’s being distributed across Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland.
At the same time, Danmon built an additional HD Sports channel which is branded as ViaSat Sport Premium.
Both projects were coordinated through the local Danmon Sweden office and implemented by Danmon Systems. They included three new rooms: UHD editing and control, voiceover and HD Sports control. There was also an extensive upgrade of ViaSat’s existing DHD audio mixer and Imagine Platinum video router, as well as a rebuild of the Pebble Beach Neptune automation system.
Building and testing were completed by Danmon in just over a month, on time and on budget. The new system went on air earlier this month.
