Datavideo distributor in Poland, WAMM Video Solutions created a simple, easy to use visual radio setup for Radio Kielce using Datavideo hardware. The radio station, Polskie Radio Kielce asked WAMM for a simple, easy to use setup with minimal cables to prevent cable clutter. They also needed a six-channel switcher and a reliable streaming solution for high and low bandwidths.
Mr. Artur Wiacek from WAMM Video Solutions: “Datavideo is our first choice in hardware solutions for a project like this. Since the customer asked us specifically for a setup with minimal cables we chose for HDBaseT. This enables us to transport camera power, signal in 1080i50, control data, and tally information over a single Ethernet cable. Datavideo provided a perfect camera in this range, the PTC-150T. The 30x zoom lens, fast and precise PTZ movement and cost-effective price level made this the clear winner for this project.”
Radio Kielce uses the Datavideo SE-2200 as their main switcher for visual radio. This switcher is very easy to use and has a straightforward button layout. SE-2200 features six inputs, all SDI and two assignable HDMI inputs. The HDMI inputs have a double feature and can be configured to accept titles coming from a computer running Datavideo titling software. The switcher does the internal split to key/fill signal so you won’t lose two input channels.
“This feature is unique amongst the entry-level video switching solutions” explains Mr. Johan Lieffers, General Manager at Datavideo Technologies Europe BV. “SE-2200 is the best solution in a project like this. A perfect combination of broadcast-grade hardware and professional but easy to use functionality.”
Radio Kielce asked for reliable streaming to their website, Youtube account and Facebook crowd. Normally this would ask for a streaming server to transcode and deliver the stream to multiple destinations. But with the Datavideo brand new NVS-40, this can be done from a single unit. NVS-40 encodes up to 4 inputs at the same time, in two bandwidths per stream.
“The whole setup breathes professionality,” says Mr. Artur Wiacek from WAMM Video Solutions. “It’s great to see such quality result in a setup that is both cost effective and easy to use.”
