The SVG was formed in 2006 to support the professional community that relies on video, audio and broadband technologies to produce and distribute sports content. Leagues, owners, teams, players, broadcasters, webcasters and consumer technology providers have joined the SVG to advance sports production/distribution process and the overall consumer sports experience.
The Apantac TAHOMA multiviewers meanwhile allow broadcasters to monitor any type of signal feed at a number of different resolutions. They support multi-image display processing applications whether in sports, government applications, education and distance learning, corporate or medical, traditional control room or broadcast and professional AV environments. A skin technology allows users to customize their on-screen display of graphics including borders, labels, fonts, tally LEDs, clock faces, logos, embedded audio, discrete audio meters and audio / video alarms. Video windows on the display may include multiple labels, and support UMD, OMD (News - Alert), IMD and standalone labels.
The TAHOMA range offers built-in extension solutions to accommodate long distances, and the range of accepted inputs and signals range from 3G/HD/SD-SDI all the way to computer and multimedia inputs. Certain models provide built-in routers, as well as support for IP multiviewing requirements.
"The Sports Video Group is proud to have Apantac join our association as their product line of signal processing and multiviewer gear is an important option for our members around the globe," said Ken Kerschbaumer, executive director for editorial services at SVG and SVG Europe. "We look forward to working with them in 2013 and beyond."
