Buenos Aires, Argentina, November 28th, 2018 – Throughout the present year, the Argentinean TV network Television Federal (TELEFE) made the decision to purchase a multi-codec and multi-format recorder and player server – ZX45 – from the US company Cinedeck, represented in Latin America by AudioVideo BrandBuilder Corporation.
Thanks to business opportunities presented to the company as a subsidiary of the VIACOM network, TELEFE decided for this model of Cinedeck hardware. “For the production of sitcoms and scripted TV, we needed to have a machine with
an interface that would show the recording status of the different signals simultaneously and that was ingested with the correct time code for quality control.”, commented Diego Perez, technical engineer for TELEFE. In addition, other great features included in the Cinedeck ZX45, such as the flexibility in accepting different formats and codecs and the capability to record up to four HD signals at the same time, make this equipment the preferred recorder used by other TV stations of the Argentinean network, such as Nick Jr. and Comedy Central, as it accepts frame rates and codecs not available in TELEFE’s original hardware inventory.
“The Cinedeck’s ZX45 has an interface that is easy to operate and allows customizations that can be created according to the user’s level of experience. As TELEFE starts exploring the production of 4K/HDR content and thanks to the ZX45’s capability to operate four HD signals simultaneously, or one 4K signal, we believe we will be utilizing this functionality very soon” concludes Diego Perez.
“On behalf of AVBB, we are very pleased that technology like Cinedeck’s, that allows recording different channels and different codecs simultaneously, is being accepted in Latin America and that TELEFE has adopted the ZX45 for the production of scripted and sitcom programming.”, added Carlos Noguera, Director of Sales for Latin America for AVBB.
