[SatNews] Miranda Technologies, a Belden Brand, has completed a major router expansion at MLB Network, Major League Baseball’s 24/7 cable television network, that includes NVISION enterprise class routing with fiber inter-connectivity throughout the production workflow.
Located in Secaucus, N.J., MLB Network’s file-based HD production and distribution facility houses one of the world’s most modern IT-based infrastructures and associated digital file-based workflows. The facility not only serves as the HD production and broadcast center for MLB Network, it provides MLB Productions with the ability to meet immense post production and archival needs. As part of its requirement to manage a greater amount of content moving forward, and upgrade the facility to 3 Gb/s, MLB Network has added additional NVISION 8500 Series routers, equipped with fiber optic connectivity, to its workflow that was already managed with NVISION routing. The expanded system now includes two NVISION 8576 (576 x 1152) and one NVISION 8280 (288 x 576), with fiber tielines.
The original NVISION 8576 now serves MLB Network’s operations functions while the new NVISION 8576 is dedicated to production. Both are linked via Miranda fiber optic, bidirectional tielines, including a third NVISION 8280 router that now sits at the heart of the network’s distribution function. The direct lines of fiber connectivity that link MLB Productions and MLB Network via NVISION routers have substantially streamlined the ability to move, manipulate and manage high quality content between the two.
