Tieline Merlin Codecs at Mediacorp Singapore
Singapore-based Mediacorp is putting some 60 Tieline Merlin IP audio codecs to use in the new Mediacorp Campus facilities in Mediapolis and at its Bukit Batok transmitter site.
Tieline says the media group, with business interests in television, radio, newspapers, magazines and DOOH, is utilizing the codecs to carry 12 radio channels, broadcast in four languages to Singapore’s multilingual audience.
“The size and scope of the Mediacorp installation at their new facility at Mediapolis is impressive. Critically important with live content is the reliability of Tieline’s SmartStream PLUS in delivering over 100,000 hours of unsurpassed audio quality to its audience each year,” said Charlie Gawley, Tieline’s VP Sales APAC/EMEA.
“Mediacorp has selected Merlin IP audio codecs for their Studio-to-Transmitter links as they are equipped with multiple layers of redundancy and are already used by major broadcasting networks across the globe,” added Gawley.
Telesto Broadcast Solutions, Tieline’s Singapore distributor, delivered and supported the installation and commissioning of the Merlin codecs.
