Blackmagic Design and SQUID Bring World Cup to Argentina’s Top Broadcasters

MILPITAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Blackmagic Design Inc. today announced that its Blackmagic Design DeckLink Studio capture and playback cards, in conjunction with XV-Tech’s SQUID broadcast workflow software, are currently being used by Argentinean broadcasters TyC Sports, Telefe and Torneos y Competencias for the airing and playback of FIFA World Cup 2010 games and highlights. The combination of the Blackmagic Design’s DeckLink products and XV-Tech’s SQUID solution has a long history of use in Argentina, which includes TyC Sports’ recent broadcast of the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics. It is currently being used by more than 60 channels within Argentina.


All three broadcasters are using the joint product as part of a tapeless workflow to allow them to record and playback both SD and HD audio and video of the World Cup games. This end-to-end solution enables them to ingest feeds and integrate signals from all World Cup games for post-production and playback, and will allow for future playback and editing. All footage will be available through archiving systems once the games conclude on July 11.


XV-Tech’s SQUID provides a complete system for the management of video clips for open air and cable stations. The system includes the SQUID LoopRecorders feature, which allows broadcasters to constantly record feeds and manage them for immediate and future use, with media being recorded directly in LoopRecorders and then sent to editing and playout servers without interruption. With the LoopRecorders, DeckLink Studio is being used as the primary capture and playback device for both SD and HD signals.
