Black Box to pinpoint sports OB benefits at tech showcase this Friday
“In sports TV the OB sector plays a critical role. OB is a key target market for Black Box and at the Technology Showcase it will demonstrate how KVM switching and extension systems can enhance functionality within the cramped confines of an OB vehicle whilst freeing up space and reducing the weight load.” So says Anika Bascombe, marketing manager at Black Box Network Services, speaking ahead of a showcase event taking place at MediaCity Imperial War Museum, Salford Quays, this Friday (17 May).
“Through a mixture of demonstrations and case studies, attendees to the showcase will see how this technology helps increase efficiency in a host of real-life scenarios.”
Featuring a blend of demonstrations, case studies and discusssions, the showcase is designed to help broadcasters, content providers and telcos expand their knowledge and understanding of IT’s increasingly pivotal role within broadcast workflows.
Highlighted products will include Black Box’s ServeSwitch KVM range, which are designed to provide optimised access to multiple servers and workstations from a single location in mobile studios.
Bascombe continues: “Visitors to this special technology showcase will gain so much more than from a typical tradeshow. The focus is on education and information rather than selling. As the application of core IT technologies becomes much more prevalent in broadcast operations of all sizes and scales, our specialist design and support teams can make a massive difference to the bottom line operating efficiency of any facility from a single OB truck to an entire TV station. Come to Manchester and learn how this technology can support the growth and development of your business.”
