TSP selects Matrox Monarch EDGE for remote production

Japan’s Tokyo Sound Production Inc. (TSP), a full-service video production company,  has selected the Matrox Monarch EDGE encoder and decoder pair to produce high-quality, multi-camera remote productions and maximise resources.

TSP provides video coverage of live entertainment and sporting events across Japan. In order to both optimise resources and expand its online live streaming offering, the company needed an encoder and decoder pair capable of transporting multiple channels of exceptional-quality video over long distances using a VPN. 

With the adoption of the Matrox Monarch EDGE E4 encoder and D4 decoder, TSP was able to begin producing high-quality remote productions for events across the country and limit the presence of on-site staff. TSP is now able to keep most of its live video production staff in-house.

As TSP covers live events in various regions across Japan, a small crew of camera operators and assistants typically travels to the remote site. Four SDI cameras capture the 1080p event video and send it directly to the Monarch EDGE E4 4:2:2 10-bit encoder on-site. From there, streams are sent via VPN using either SRT or MPEG2-TS to the Monarch EDGE D4 decoder located in the TSP production studio in Tokyo. 

At the studio in Tokyo, audio is added, and the produced video is delivered to TSP’s website. There, viewers can watch high-quality, multi-camera-angle broadcasts of their favorite live entertainment or sporting events in near-real-time.

Kengo Kaketa, Chief Digital Officer, Strategy & Sales Departments at TSP, said, “As a pioneer in the video production industry, TSP is aiming to consistently improve the content we deliver and the way we produce it.

“Once we found out about the Matrox Monarch EDGE encoder and decoder pair, we knew that the innovative devices would enhance our workflow by enabling us to optimise everything from video quality to staff interactions.

“Monarch EDGE’s ability to securely transport multiple streams of HD video made the product ideal for delivering broadcast-quality, multi-camera-angle productions to our web interface.”
