Perth, Western Australia, June 6th, 2017
Tieline today announced it has supplied 32 i-Mix G3 codecs to South Korean systems integrator Coil and Wire (CNW), to provide commentary equipment for South Korean Host Broadcasters KBS, MBC and SBS on behalf of local and foreign rights holders at the U-20 World Cup in South Korea.
“CNW secured the contract with the Host Broadcasters to supply all equipment and fit out all commentary positions for the event,” said Charlie Gawley, VP Sales APAC & EMEA. “The i-Mix was specified by Mr. Hyung-uk Sheen from CNW as the codec of choice because of its flexibility and ability to connect over IP, ISDN and POTS. The codec is being used to broadcast all 52 games played throughout the tournament.”
CNW has installed 5 i-Mix G3 audio codecs in commentary positions at five venues at Cheonan, Daejeon, Incheon, Jeju and Jeonju, plus 7 i-Mix codecs are installed in commentary positions at the main stadium in Suwon. “Commentary audio is being transported directly from the venues to Tieline Commander G3 rack mount codecs at each South Korean rights holder’s studio for local transmissions,” said Sheen. “South Korean rights holders KBS, MBC and SBS are using IP over the public internet for their primary connections, with POTS lines as backup. Other European, Asian and American rights holders are predominantly using ISDN lines with POTS backup.”
“The i-Mix can connect reliably over IP, ISDN and POTS, and failover seamlessly to any transport if required, which was a very important factor,” said Sheen. “The solid track record of the codec at other major events, like the Asian Games in 2014, simplified the decision to use the i-Mix for this event.”
The i-Mix has 5 balanced XLR inputs and local announcer commentary audio at each venue is mixed with splits of international sound and PA audio. Codecs also receive communications audio routed through commentary control.
The tournament concludes with the final on June 11.
