Live TV Football Analysis with Perle Serial Device Servers

New Content Media use IOLAN Device Servers to provide the serial tunnel needed to transmit live TV images for Football Analysis show “Mittelkreis”.

NASHVILLE, TN—March 21st, 2013 — Perle Systems, a global provider of advanced serial to Ethernet and secure device networking solutions, reveals that New Content Media chose Perle IOLAN Device Servers to create the serial tunnel over fiber needed to transmit live TV images.

During a studio upgrade, New Content Media, discovered that a newly installed mixing desk was not compatible with the Fiber network, and instead had Serial RS422 interfaces. This threatened to disrupt the live opening sequence of the Live TV Football (Soccer) Analysis show “Mittelkreis”.

“I contacted Panasonic [the manufacturer of the Mixing desk] and they advised me that I would require a Serial to Ethernet converter in order to install the new mixing desk with its RS422 interface,” says Mr. Lankenau, Studio Manager at New Content Media. “Through an internet search I made contact with Perle and was hopeful that they could provide a solution to this problem.”
