Arkona Technologies Closes Mega Expansion Deal Down Under 

Frankfurt, Germany – 21 March 2023 – arkona technologies GmbH, provider of IP core infrastructure solutions for top-tier broadcast productions, has closed a large expansion deal with the Australian branch of a multinational company known for its live production capabilities.

The customer, already a long-time user of arkona’s technology, selected arkona’s next generation BLADE//runner platform as part of a major upgrade that will enable the network to handle UHD transmissions between event venues and its centralized production facility.

Planned as a multi-staged roll out, the initial complement of equipment comprises 46 units of BLADE//runner AT300 dual 100GE FPGA programmable accelerator cards, combined with the JPEG-XS encode/decode application capable of UHD/3G/HD video. The solution, which has already been installed and is in operation, packs a tremendous amount of power into a compact form factor providing an energy efficient, high density 4K/HDR solution and powerful tool for remote and live productions.

“We are very pleased to be working with such a large, well-known, and prestigious company that knows arkona technology and chooses to remain with it,” said Erling Hedkvist Sales & Business Development Manager for arkona. “Because of the enormity of its production schedule, this customer can’t risk failure. It’s a great opportunity for us to demonstrate our commitment to providing the highest quality and reliable solutions for live production.”
