“Cuando la información se organiza, surgen las ideas” Jim Rohn.
Here are the latest news…
Televisión Canaria, the broadcasting authority for Spain’s Canary Islands, has migrated its entire archive from LTO tape to an ALTO all-disk storage system from Disk Archive Corporation. Initially configured with 1600TB of storage, the ALTO replaces Televisión Canaria’s previous archive installation based on a Robotic Tape Library and a third-party Archive Management system.
Two ALTO-II systems with four EX-60 expansion chassis and a dual ALTO Filer, the system’s Virtual File System interface were provided by Datos Media Technologies SA to Televisión Canarias for the new installation based at the Video Report Canarias headquarters. The ALTO storage is integrated with the broadcaster’s traffic, playout and newsroom systems through an in-house developed Media Management system. Clips are copied and transcoded using software developed by Televisión Canaria, and each subsystem of the MAM exchanges material from the ALTO in the required format. Access to the audiovisual files is via a network folder accessed from any point in the network, making it easy for the broadcaster to implement open-ended future developments.
“ALTO is a great alternative for mass storage; it is a versatile and scalable technology that’s simple to use,” said Vicente Tetuani, System Manager for Video Report Canarias. “ALTO breaks the bonds of tape-based data systems and minimizes maintenance costs. The scalability of the system and the fact that it is based on standard commodity disks gives us the flexibility to predict and manage the growth of the archive with secure user-selectable replication for backups and disaster recovery.”
ALTO-II is a scalable, flexible and highly secure alternative to a Data Tape Library for media storage, offering faster access for many more users with a low capital outlay and very low total cost of ownership. ALTO takes advantage of recent developments in disk drive technology and new strategies for data protection to offer unique performance and economic benefits for applications including media acquisition, production and distribution, archives and content libraries.
“We have many years experience working on the integration of MAM systems, and for this particular project, the archive migration was incredibly comfortable, transparent, and extremely fast,” said David Martinez, COO of Datos Media Technologies SA. “The ALTO system was installed and configured in three days, with the migration beginning the next day. Within two weeks we had already migrated 120TB of content and created the corresponding protection replicas.”

“Datos Media is delighted with the opportunity to work with DYVI from the beginning to introduce the rule changing Video processing product line for live production with DYVI for the Spanish broadcasters. In the Spanish market there is a need for cost effective high end live production solutions for the transition to HD” explains Tomas Nielsen, CEO Datos Media.
Datos Media and Shotoku Broadcast Systems, a leading international manufacturer of advanced camera support products, has announced the recent installation of a robotically controlled system comprising numerous pan and tilt heads and dual 16-camera control systems at Atresmedia Corporación de Medios de Comunicación, S.A. The Madrid-based Spanish media group, a national broadcaster, maintains a significant presence in the television, radio and cinema industries. The sale was made through Shotoku’s regional reseller Datos Media.
After in-depth testing and on-site demonstrations, the Shotoku systems — seven TG-18 robotic pan and tilt heads and two 16-camera TR-T control systems — were selected by Atresmedia Corporación as key pieces of its re-launched and refurbished studio to replace its older gear.
Since the first test, we were satisfied with the overall capability of Shotokus system, both operationally and technically,” says Fernando García del Rey, Head of Studio Operations, Atresmedia. “The system works well, operators find it easy to use, and the support we get from Shotoku, with Datos Media, has been excellent.
According to James Eddershaw, Shotoku sales director, Atresmedia is a brand new client and the first order with Shotoku’s newly appointed agent in the region, Datos Media, signaling a major win for the company. “I am delighted to be working with Atresmedia - one of Spains leading national broadcasters with a long history of experience in robotic camera systems,” says Eddershaw. “To be selected by them after a detailed evaluation, is praise indeed for our systems.” The Datos team worked very closely with the Atresmedia crew during installation and provided full training on-site once the system was integrated. Now, the station is live and on-air every day.
We were extremely pleased to be able to supply a large Shotoku system to Atresmedia, especially so soon after partnering with Shotoku in Spain,” says Tomas Nielsen, managing director, Datos Media. “Like Atresmedia, we were happy with the way the project went, with very smooth integration into the existing studio environment and all completed on time.
The TG-18 has a 56kg payload capacity making it ideal for any ENG camera/lens combinations in typical studio configurations including the usual accessories such as viewfinder, hand controls and teleprompter/preview monitor. The TG-18 offers exceptional pan and tilt control, allowing complete freedom for on-air adjustments from the control systems. The head combines all the features expected of a high performance remote pan and tilt head (i.e. high accuracy, smooth movement, silent operation and high payload) with a full manual override capability.
The completely configurable screen layouts of the TR-T system supports 16 cameras, capable of being controlled by a single operator position, and displayed in any configuration to suit the particular requirements of the program. The TR-T panel style uses multicolored illuminated keys to communicate system status and control settings, with the same high precision joystick for ultra-smooth, on-air control that has become the trademark of a Shotoku system.
Datos Media Technologies will be present in the BIT Broadcast 2014 Exhibition, the International Professional Show of Audiovisual Technology, which will take place the 20, 21 and 22 of May 2014 in IFEMA - Feria de Madrid. Datos Media Technologies, will be in Stand Nº 6D28 We will present the latest news from Avid with MediaCentral Platform, the new open scalable, and customized platform of common services, which makes the strategic vision of AVID EVERYWHERE real. We will also present several other products and their integrations with Avid, among others MOG, Marquis, DAC, ObjectMatrix, Provys, Digimetrix, Vidigo or Pion. An example of integration, which we will demonstrate, is Marquis Parking v3, a nearline media and projects management system over the storage platform Object Matrix, which is a robust, efficient and resistant to faillures nearline storage platforms. One of the technological novelties which we will show, will be the ALTO system from the Company DAC (Disk Archive Corporation). This is a long term storage system based on disks alternatively to the LTO tape libraries. This concept and its technology make a long term storage filesystem, with a lower cost and recuperation and a greater reliability than the systems based on robotics LTO, viable today.
Datos Media Technologies announces that it has completed a major high-definition renovation of the Madrid studio and production centre for Trinity Broadcasting Network.
Richard Fleming of TBN Europe noted that the network, founded in 1973 in Los Angeles, has had a broadcast presence in Madrid since the mid-1980s: “Today TBNs Madrid facility serves as the premier broadcast hub feeding programming via satellite to TBNs networks and affiliates throughout Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. Many of TBNs most popular programmes are filmed before a live audience, and the new state-of-the-art studio from Datos Media gives us the latest in HD technology that will keep our production quality at its peak.”
Fleming added that Datos Media, along with its UK-based sister company ATG Broadcast, were the logical choice for the upgrade because of their combined reputations for innovative designs in both live studio systems and digital content management. “Being Madrid-based, Datos is also ideally located to provide ongoing service or expansion support for TBN,” he said.
Speaking of the technical aspects of the TBN project, David Martinez, operations manager for Datos Media, explained that video production equipment integrated into the new studio includes five Sony HXC-D70 cameras with optical links; Canon lenses; Cartoni and Jimmy Jib camera mounts; a Sony MVS-3000 vision switcher; and a Ross XPression HD character generator. The vision mixer incorporates a multi-viewer output which feeds audio and video control room monitors, with file editing completed on Apple computers running Final Cut Pro X software.
“Audio production is controlled from a Studer Vista 1 console with 30 motorised faders,” Martinez explained. “This can source from AKG, Beyer, Sennheiser, and Shure microphones, plus 10 Sony digital radio microphone channels. Infrastructure equipment includes an AJA video format converter; an AJA 32 x 32 HD-SDI router; Custom Consoles production control desks; Eizo, LG, and Mitsubishi monitors in 50 inch and 55 inch sizes; Omnitek test equipment; a Trilogy master sync generator; and a Vidigo ToolBox media file player — all held together with Axon glue.”
Martinez emphasised that the entire project was completed on schedule and the new HD studio and production centre are now fully on the air. “This was quite an ambitious project for us, given TBNs reputation for maintaining exacting standards of technical quality,” he said. “We are very pleased with the results.”
