ATG Danmon builds TV hub ideal for remote presenter-guest interviews

A US-based financial services corporation has chosen ATG Danmon to build a TV planning, publicity and team communication facility in Singapore. 

The new facility is being used to expand the organisation’s visibility through social media, online podcasting and participation in finance-related broadcast TV programmes. It has also been deployed for audio-visual communication between the group’s various premises around the world.

Paul Shonfeld, Head of Sales at ATG Danmon, said, “This project is the most recent in a series of studio facilities which we have designed, equipped and integrated over several years for this customer in the UK, mainland Europe and Asia.

“Operational efficiency and cost-effectiveness are a core feature, using internet-based connectivity to integrate the corporation’s staff into a united team regardless of their geographical location.

“We have decades of experience in designing and building media solutions that are reliable, easy to use, space-efficient and affordable.”

Following discussions with the company’s head of studios, Danmon recommended a system based on the remote-contribution model, which provides full support for bi-directional IP connectivity between various hubs. 

The NDI standard is used to send pan/tilt/zoom/focus camera control data, as well as tally signals to the remote cameras and bring video back into the production gallery. This, said Jonathan Hughes, ATG Danmon Managing Director, creates a “highly efficient solution” that carries a large amount of information over a VPN connection.

He added, “We configured the Singapore hub so that it could televise a presenter and guest. Feeds from remotely linked guests using channels such as Skype and Zoom can also be monitored and selectively accessed.

“For this new system, we proposed a solution including a remotely controllable camera with pan/tilt/zoom on a motorised height-adjustable column. The camera faces a virtual studio set allowing any required scenery to be placed in the background. Also integrated are lighting, teleprompt and audio.”
