Hong Kong Jockey Club equips new broadcast center with Draco tera enterprise KVM matrix switch
The Hong Kong Jockey Club’s Sha Tin center is responsible for the live broadcasting of its horse-racing from a suite of four broadcast studios. To keep punters and enthusiasts abreast of racing events and deliver live racing feeds to broadcast transmission networks in the region, presenters and production staff rely on uninterrupted access to servers and computers. In the high-pressure environment of horse-racing broadcasting, video latency and delays in switching of computer signals are unacceptable.
The KVM system gives operators the ability to connect to and switch between servers and workstations as though they were located beneath their desks. Users experience no delay whatsoever. The integral redundant capability and back-up of the Draco tera enterprise switch, combined with its hot-swap component ability, means that should any untoward issues occur, the equipment can be rectified and reinstated without disruption to the broadcasts service.
