ČT24 selects Quicklink Skype TX for Czech broadcasts
ČT24 has recently chosen the Quicklink TX solution in order to broadcast Skype transmissions within the Czech television channels group — Česká televize. ČT24 is the first and only Czech television which provides 24-hour news coverage and it is the most watched 24-hour news television in Europe.
Martin Roztočil, IT manager of Czech TV describes the reasons for choosing the Quicklink TX: “It is very simple to use. We had a great experience using the Quicklink LNG software, so we wanted to try another product from Quicklink. We were looking for another Skype product because we were using standalone PCs with the standard Skype client. So there was a PC, Matrox device for SDI output, external sound card… a lot of devices and lot of potential errors. Now we have only one 1U piece of hardware“
Quicklink TX is a device designed for use in television production studios and other professional environments that enables you to send Skype calls as SD/HD-SDI video with embedded or balanced analogue audio, providing exceptional call quality in HD video format.
Roztočil explains: It’s been really easy to use .The Quicklink TX has given us better call management as a broadcaster, including the ability to switch resolutions on the output and improved return audio sound.“
