Czech TV selects Orad PowerWall for sports coverage
Czech public service broadcaster Czech TV has chosen Orad’s PowerWall solution and on air graphics for its sport-oriented Studio 7 video wall. The installation follows Czech TV’s search for a solution to trigger the video walls in this studio, where it produces the daily main sports news, short hourly sports news and other sports shows.
Orad’s video wall solution, which provides up to 16k resolution from a single box, was selected to prompt Czech TV’s 3 independent video walls. With Orad´s PowerWall solution, Czech TV can use canvases to generate more than one set of outputs for different display surfaces in the studio, and feed different walls with different aspect ratio graphics.
The walls themselves are powered by Orad’s HDVG4 video rendering platform, providing 8 HD outputs in 1080i. All graphics on the video wall are triggered by 3DPlay, while all full screen sports graphics and lower thirds are produced with Orad’s Maestro character generator based on Orad´s HDVG platform.
“We feel that PowerWall meets and even surpasses all our requirements. It provides the cost effective solution we were looking for to bring compelling graphic content at very high resolutions to our 6×3 display, 3×2 display, and 2×2 Plasma display. The addition of Orad’s PowerWall to our studio will bring our productions to a new level,” says Ivo Ferkel, CTO Czech TV.
