AJA Technology Extends Worldwide Coverage of 2014 Winter Paralympic Games

(Grass Valley, California–March 18, 2014) The Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games, held from March 7-16, marked AJA Video Systems‘ third collaboration with the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) to provide broadcast solutions for the international distribution of live and on-demand coverage of the games. IPC’s ParalympicSportTV team delivered 300 hours of HD content to audiences worldwide using eight AJA Ki Pro Rack recorders; an AJA KUMO 32×32 compact router with a KUMO Control Panel controlled through its webserver over LAN; an AJA FS2 dual-channel converter and frame synchronizer; and four AJA Hi5-3G Mini-Converters.

“AJA equipment played a huge role in our Paralympics coverage again this year; we couldn’t have pulled the project off without it. KUMO truly formed the heart of our pipeline, allowing us to distribute our internal signal to every single piece of equipment,” said Ingo Schneider, Head of ParalympicSportTV. “Our Ki Pro Racks also provided seamless recording and playback, and accelerated editorial, while FS2 allowed us to better control our audio settings and be prepared for the demand of satellite connections.”
