CyBC turns to MOG for OB upgrade


MOG recently deployed a new custom solution based on P2 structures to meet the Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation’s requirements for an upgraded OB Van production ecosystem. Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation (CyBC) is Cyprus’s public broadcaster. It started its operation in 1953 and transmits island-wide on four radio stations, two television channels and one satellite channel.

CyBC reached out to MOG to carry out the upgrade with its main goal being to have a P2 structure as an output, and get P2 structures rewrapped from mxf Op1A, 2 to record AVC-I 100 and DVCPRO50 from OB Vans productions, for compatibility issues with existing infrastructure. While it’s standard to have P2 structures as an input, it’s not as an output meaning customisation was required.

The list of requirements also included automatic jobs – an automated process that allows for the network watch folder to rewrap for Op1A to P2 structures, and automatic deletion of the output file when the job is complete. Lastly, different P2 structures should be created equal to the number of input files dropped.

MOG’s chosen solution was the compact mDECK Densu A-2, which is capable of capture, file-based ingest and playback. The mDECK Densu A-2 provides the ability for quality control and feed monitoring, while offering a total of four media operations, which in this case was defined to be three file-based operations and one playback operation, working simultaneously. “It’s a very flexible and powerful machine,” commented Savvas Antoniou, TV and radio Engineer at CyBC.
