Europe’s leading provider of broadcast facilities and services to extend VidiGo’s latest technology to four live remote production galleries.
Amsterdam – The Netherlands — Sept. 10, 2015 — VidiGo, a ChyronHego company, today announced that it has signed a contract with Euro Media Group (EMG), Europe’s leading provider of broadcast facilities and services, to deploy VidiGo’s all-new VidiGo Live solution in four live production galleries. As the first user of the VidiGo Live software for live multi-camera television production, EMG is now officially a VidiGo technology partner.
"This new technological partnership is in line with EMG’s pro-active digital strategy and reinforces our leadership in the broadcast industry. We are pleased to work with Vidigo team whose solutions will add value to EMG Content Services’ existing offering.", said Thierry Drilhon, Chairman & CEO of EMG.
"We had been evaluating remote production solutions for two years. Having worked intensively with VidiGo, we came to the conclusion that VidiGo Live is clearly the most advanced solution in the industry. VidiGo Live has the potential to re-invent live broadcasting by separating equipment from the physical location of the production. With less bandwidth required, facilities are able to eliminate expensive dark fiber connections," said Ronald Meyvisch, New Technology Officer of EMG, "As a pure software company, VidiGo won us over with the stunning performance of its streaming solution for multiviewer monitoring and interfaces. It’s clear to us that this technological approach is the future of live TV production."
The VidiGo Live remote live production solution is a complete multi-camera production environment that offers camera SDI inputs/outputs, video playback, graphics, audio, and the automation capabilities for which VidiGo is well-known. In a typical VidiGo Live deployment, cameras and a production server are all that is required at the remote location, with the full production controlled over an IP network from a centralized studio. In this manner, production facility providers like EMG are able to reduce costs substantially since they are not required to deploy complete OB vehicles and crews to every location.
Following completion of the VidiGo Live installation in the four remote live production galleries, EMG will continue to expand the deployment.
"It’s an exciting time for VidiGo. In addition to our recent acquisition by ChyronHego, the new partnership with EMG is a significant milestone for our company," said Hans Krouwels, CEO of VidiGo. "Although VidiGo Live has been well-tested in smaller remote productions, with the EMG deployment we’re entering the major league. For almost a decade, our team has been working hard to develop software-based solutions for broadcasting, and it’s tremendously gratifying to see their efforts come to fruition."
