Brazilian cable and satellite video operator Globosat is using technology from Tektronix to support live IP media production of the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Globosat, which will produce the worldwide content for the 2016 Olympics, plans to deploy 16 linear video channels by satellite and more than 56 by Internet, amounting to 16 produced channels and 40 channels of audio for the Games.

The operator will be using two Tektronix SPG8000A master sync and PTP grandmaster clock generators to support for both SDI-based and IP-based media infrastructures. Also deployed will be two Prism IP/SDI media analyzers to diagnose and correlate both SDI and IP signal types.

"The move to an all IP-based infrastructure will continue beyond the Olympic Games. However, we also wanted to take full advantage of IP networking technology for this very important event," said Lourenço Carvano, engineering director of Globosat. "With the help of Tektronix, we are confident in our ability to support a hybrid SDI/IP environment, helping us to both lower costs and deliver a higher quality broadcast to our audience."
