Evertz supports Love Nature’s 4K television launch in Canada with UHD solution
Evertz Microsystems, provider of media and entertainment technology solutions, has announced that its UHD solution was selected by Blue Ant Media for its recently launched Love Nature 4K (Ultra-HD) linear TV channel in Canada, now available to subscribers on cable carrier, Videotron.
The new 4K channel offers the same line up of exclusive wildlife and nature series as seen on Love Nature’s pre-existing HD channel, but for the first time, will give Canadian TV audiences the advantage of enjoying the programming in its optimal, crystal clear 4K resolution.
Love Nature’s 4K TV leverages Evertz’s advanced Mediator and OvertureRT LIVE technologies. Mediator provides Blue Ant with a fully automated workflow including content preparation, media asset management (MAM), and playout automation. Blue Ant Media will use OvertureRT LIVE 4K integrated playout engines under Mediator control for this new UHD channel.
“Evertz and Blue Ant Media have a long standing and deep partnership. This relationship and the existing core Mediator system, allowed us to define a quick and simple way to add an additional 4K channel to their system with only incremental costs,” said Dan Turow, VP of file-based solutions at Evertz.
“Evertz is considered a leader in providing innovative solutions for UHD and their commitment to service speaks for itself,” said Ajay Sirohi, VP, technology, Blue Ant Media. “We are thrilled with our collaboration with Evertz to bring Love Nature 4K TV to audiences in Canada.”
