Czech TV chooses Vinten Radamec

Vinten Radamec, a Vitec Group brand, has won an order to supply Czech TV with its high quality broadcast virtual reality equipment. The agreement will see three Quattro SE encoded manual pedestals installed in the refurbished Czech TV studios in Prague.

The equipment will be installed as part of a rebuild programme which will provide a full HD set up in the Czech TV virtual studio. Predominantly used for sport and discussion programmes, the virtual studio will form part of Czech TVís national network, and will reinforce its position as the biggest broadcaster in the region. The Quattro SE pedestals will form a crucial element of the studio set up, working alongside a full range of equipment including Vizrt virtual studio software.

The Vinten Radamec order was secured through Czech Republic-based broadcast integrators Elvia-Pro, a company which develops, distributes and supplies a wide range of professional studio products to broadcasters around the world.

Jan Pavlik, Customer Support Engineer, Eliva-Pro said: "We have supplied Vinten Radamecís equipment for more than seven years and we recommended these pedestals as part of the Czech TV rebuild as their robotic camera support systems always deliver on performance and offer the most reliable solutions for virtual reality applications. Once installed, the Quattro SEs will provide the studio with a faster and easier setup and much more dynamic movement of the cameras."
