Sigma Electronics recently installed its ADX routing system and alphanumeric control panels for the newly expanded Miami facilities of MTV Networks Latin America. This new installation will allow all post-production functions to be handled in-house.

"When dealing with a large facility such as MTV Networks Latin America, with complex routing systems and digital signal management, Sigma’s large matrix digital 64x64 ADX was a perfect fit," said Joe Fedele, president of The Fedele Group of Companies and the broadcast systems integrator contracted by MTV Networks Latin America. "The router has allowed the facility to centralize its VTRs, which, in turn, enables them to increase productivity and reduce the facility’s downtime."

The installed ADX router is a five-layer system consisting of analog video, digital video, analog audio, digital audio and timecode. The configuration allows for a single six-rackunit frame system that can accommodate up to 64x64 operation, and is expandable to allow for a 128x128 matrix using a four-frame system.

According to MTV Network's Latin America's senior manager of technical operations, Raul Gutierrez, "Our goal was to build a centralized edit facility based on a router and patchbay system. By hooking everything up to a central VTR room, all through the Sigma ADX router, the facility runs much more efficiently. We now have six digital video edit suites, a digital audio suite, a dubbing room and two screening rooms."
