Atlanta, GA (January 25, 2010)–The collaboration between CP Communications and Stagetec was highlighted at the recent League Technology Summit held by the Sports Video Group in December.
ESPN, as example, uses CP Communications services extensively and are owners of the largest Stagetec NEXUS routing systems in the US. Now they and other broadcasters can take advantage of Stagetec equipment through CP for their remote productions.
Part of the offering will include Stagetec consoles and NEXUS router systems in CP trailers that will be purpose built for sports broadcasting. Stagetec will supply digital 5.1 mixing platforms using the Crescendo and Aurus surfaces coupled with the NEXUS router, which include SDI, HD and 3GHD embedders and de-Embedders, Dolby E and more that Stagetec delivers.
“The synergistic opportunities in partnering with CP Communications are too advantageous to remote broadcasting to pass up,” states Vinnie Macri, VP of broadcast solutions for Stagetec. “We look ahead to this new collaboration to enhance the options for sports and entertainment broadcasters through CP’s administration of highly developed all-digital Stagetec solutions.”
“Many of our Entertainment and Broadcast clients are asking us for a better digital 5.1 mixing platform solution than other current equipment rental companies are providing. We looked at an array of digital mixing platforms and concluded that the Stagetec consoles, combined with the proven power of the Stagetec Nexus router, will give our clients the greatest flexibility and best performance for the money,” states Kurt Heitmann, SVP sales and marketing for CP Communications. “This partnership, along with our extensive fiber and digital inventory, makes us one of the most comprehensive solution providers in this digital age for entertainment and sports broadcasting.”
