Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India (October 2, 2013)—New 24-hour television news channel Mathrubhumi TV in India has installed TSL Products’ TallyMan TM2 studio control system and several AMUT-2MHD audio monitoring units.
Launched in January, the news channel is part of a four-channel programming initiative being developed to serve the 36 million Malayalam-speaking residents in the Indian state of Kerala. The TallyMan TM2 system sits at the heart of the network’s operational center (NOC) providing a communication path between equipment, while the AMUT units monitor embedded audio.
Local Systems Integrators and TSL Products’ partner, RGB, were commissioned to design and build the new broadcast facilities for Mathrubhumi Group. The TallyMan TM2 system monitors the status of Mathrubhumi TV’s NOC transmission video router, the station video router, Snell Kahuna Mixers (one 3ME and two 2ME models) along with four Evertz EMC Master Control units; serving the necessary information to the station’s seven Evertz Multiviewers and 15 Sony HDC1580R Cameras. The TM2 Monitors the signal flow throughout the facility and relays mnemonic and tally information to camera operators, talent and other members of the production team. TSL Products’ AMU audio monitoring units are also installed at the NOC for stereo audio monitoring from HD, SDI, AES and analog sources.
