Telecom Networks CBC Technology July 31 2012 will mark a watershed event for CBC Radio Canada the end of over the air analogue television broadcasting in both English and French across the country Many European countries have already made the transition to Digital Television DTV and shut down their analogue systems following the lead of the Netherlands in 2006 The European Commission has recommended that its members complete the transition to DTV by January 2012 The U S ended analogue television service in June 2009 although some low power stations have been permitted to continue to operate The long road leading to this point has had many twists and turns over almost sixty years In September 1952 CBFT Montreal began broadcasting as a bilingual station at the same time as CBLT Toronto as an English station followed the next year by the first private television station CKSO TV Sudbury CBMT Montreal debuted in 1953 allowing CBFT to provide a full slate of French language programming By 1955 fully 66 of all

Workplace Media Asset Management Topping off our Digital World Contributors LinkedIn Facebook Twitter Print Email Radio Broadcast Data System Philippe Aubé P Eng MBA began his career with CBC Radio Canada in 1999 as a Technical Supervisor Transmission Operations for the Maritime Provinces In 2005 Philippe moved to Halifax and became Project Engineer Atlantic region for CBC Radio Canada s Transmission Engineering division Since 2009 Philippe has been working out of Montreal as Senior Manager for the Transmission Engineering division Philippe is a graduate of the University of Moncton NB in Electrical Engineering 1999 and also has a Master of Business Administration degree from Saint Mary s University Halifax NS 2008 Introduction While listening to FM radio in your car or on your portable FM receiver you have probably noticed that the FM station s frequency is not the only information displayed on your monitor In fact nowadays most FM stations transmit additional data that provide a variety of features that are of great use to radio listeners Information such as the FM station s name call sign i e CBFX FM song title name of artist and even the local traffic and weather information can now be transmitted and displayed on a compatible receiver The Radio Broadcast Data System RBDS is the technical standard that allows FM transmitters to broadcast additional types of information through encoded digital signals that can be displayed on RBDS compatible FM radio receivers Currently the majority of car manufacturers offer RBDS compatible FM receivers and or navigation systems in their automobiles Moreover high end audio entertainment systems and portable FM receivers such as the iPod Nano now have built in RBDS functionality The purpose of this article is to briefly explain RBDS technology and the features currently in use at CBC Radio Canada As you will see RBDS technology can be used to enhance the FM radio listening experience by interacting with listeners while offering interesting third party partnership opportunities and best of all RBDS can be used to keep listeners tuned in RBDS Basics RBDS data are modulated and carried inaudibly as a 57 kHz subcarrier on the FM baseband stereo signal Figure 1 shows the baseband audio portion of an FM stereo signal including the RBDS subcarrier Figure 1 Baseband audio signal with RDBS sub carrier Low injection levels 3 to 5 allow the RBDS data to be efficiently transmitted on FM airwaves without affecting the performance of the main audio signal The RBDS data are continuously transmitted in a cyclical fashion resulting in a very robust data stream optimised for mobile reception RBDS data transmission is possible with the use of cost effective software and encoders Consequently RBDS implementation costs are relatively low for FM broadcasters wanting to implement this technology RBDS Features In its most basic form RBDS technology allows FM stations to display the station s name or call sign on the receiver This is done using the Program Service Name feature PS Name PS Name is limited to eight characters and it is usually displayed on the RBDS receiver instead of the station s frequency At the CBC Radio Canada PS Name convention for our four FM networks is usually RadioOne for Radio One Premiere for Première Chaîne Espace M for Espace Musique RadioTwo for CBC Radio Two Recent developments in RBDS technology allow FM stations to make use of a variety of additional features such as the ability for a receiver to automatically switch from transmitter to transmitter display scrolling text information tag songs for future Internet download and create partnerships with third party applications just to name a few The following sections will explain some of these RBDS features currently in use at CBC Radio Canada Radiotext Radiotext Plus The Radiotext feature RT is used to display dynamic data information or scrolling text on the radio receiver This feature is limited to 64 characters and can scroll through a variety of information such as the song name artist name or the name of a specific show Additional information such as the weather forecast traffic info local promotional events and advertisements can also be transmitted and displayed with this feature Radiotext Plus RT on the other hand is an additional data stream that allows receivers to control and sort information on separate areas of the receiver This makes the FM radio listening experience much more appealing since the information has an MP3 player or Satellite Radio receiver look and feel Figure 2 a iPod Nano with RT feature on Espace Musique in Montreal Figure 2 b iPod Nano list of tagged songs The RT feature also allows listeners to tag songs while using compatible devices Figure 2 a shows an example of an iPod Nano media player that also includes an RBDS compatible FM receiver The song s title and artist name are displayed and can be tagged by using the icon on the bottom left of the screen The song title and artist name will be saved so that the next time listeners connect their device to the Internet the tagged songs will be accessible and available for purchase online See figure 2 b for an example of a list of tagged songs Figure 3 Samsung Android left and Blackberry Curve right with RT data courtesy of the CRC Radio stations can also use the RT feature to connect with their audience like never before For example figure 3 shows two snapshots of Communications Research Centre Canada s CRC FM TwoO application i for the Samsung Android and Blackberry Curve smart phones These smart phones also have RBDS compatible FM receivers Listeners would have the ability to connect to the stations websites or use the speed dial function of their device to place calls and or send emails Additional applications such as photos album covers and a variety of advertisements could also be displayed User selected information of this sort can provide additional opportunities for FM stations in terms of how they meet the requirements of their listeners Alternate Frequency AF Feature If you listen to FM stations while travelling over long distances you will need to retune your car radio from time to time when the signal begins to fade out This is because FM signals cover a radius of up to 80 km from the transmitter site depending on your station s operating parameters and terrain Therefore a network of FM transmitters is required to provide coverage for a particular programming over great distances While neighbouring transmitters need to use alternate FM frequencies to avoid interference the Alternate Frequency AF feature will allow your receiver to switch automatically to a better signal of the same programming so you will not need to retune manually The switch in frequency is seamless to the listener and it is a great feature to keep listeners tuned into CBC Radio Canada while driving long distances Since the RBDS receiver will look for pre programmed frequencies and the programmed identification code specified by the network that is currently tuned in competitor stations could not switch a receiver to their frequency It is also important to point out that some receivers need to have their AF feature activated as this is an optional feature on many RBDS compatible receivers This has been the case with GM vehicles that we tested where AF ON needed to be enabled The following section will discuss specific examples using FM coverage maps where the AF feature is or will be very useful to expand coverage and keep listeners tuned in Figure 4 Alternate Frequency coverage CBC Radio Canada Espace Musique Montreal Trois Rivières Quebec City and Sherbrooke Figure 4 shows a coverage map of four CBC Radio Canada FM transmitters broadcasting the same programming In this case the programming is Espace Musique and RBDS encoders are currently installed on each of these four transmitters As a result an RBDS compatible FM receiver tuned to any of these four frequencies can be automatically switched to the stronger signal s frequency while travelling from one service contour to the other Our field testing proved that when the audio delays are configured properly between transmitters the switch in frequency is seamless to the listener We actually needed to observe the display on a separate FM receiver in order to see exactly where and when the switch in frequency occurred while driving east on Highway 10 from Montreal towards Sherbrooke and while driving east on Highway 40 from Montreal towards Trois Rivières Figure 5 Alternate Frequency coverage CBC Radio Canada Première Chaîne FM Transmitter repeaters in Gaspésie QC Figure 5 shows a coverage map of southern Gaspésie Québec where we are currently building a repeater network of five FM transmitters These five transmitters will all broadcast the Première Chaîne network programming and will be ready to begin operation in September 2012 All five of these transmitters will be equipped with an RBDS encoder and have the AF feature programmed As a result a vehicle with an RBDS compatible receiver tuned to 104 3 MHz in New Richmond and travelling east on Route 132 will be automatically tuned to the best available Première Chaîne FM signal all the way to Percé QC This represents a distance of over 250 km Additional testing will be done this fall to determine the ideal injection levels and RBDS AF encoder setup in this very mountainous terrain Additional RBDS encoders could also be installed to further expand coverage in the Gaspésie peninsula where CBC Radio Canada has a series of FM repeater transmitters Figure 6 Alternate Frequency coverage CBC Radio Canada Radio One from Windsor to Ottawa along Highway 401 Another example of where a network of FM transmitters could be linked together to form an expanded coverage zone is shown on figure 6 Here the FM transmitters all broadcast Radio One programming and they cover Highway 401 from Windsor to Cornwall and the Ottawa region This would be a more challenging RBDS encoder setup scheme since Radio One programming is not the same for all Radio One transmitters during some periods of the day because of regional and local content However the RBDS standard allows the broadcaster to control the program identification codes and AF configuration of individual transmitters in a specific network during different program periods to prevent undesired automatic switching to occuring At the time of this article this feature and configuration have not yet been tested at CBC Radio Canada Open Data Application ODA Feature Soon electricity usage and billing will be subject to time of use rates where the price of electricity varies according to when it is used during the day Electricity usage during peak hours will cost more to the consumer Canadian electrical utilities are now deploying smart meters that will allow them to bill usage based on time of use In response to this time of use rate manufacturers such as GE ii are coming up with Smart Appliances such as hot water heaters washers dryers AC units etc that are designed to operate outside peak demand periods What does this have to do with RBDS and FM transmitters RBDS encoders that use the ODA feature can be used to encode and transmit electrical utilities peak demand data to smart appliances You might well ask yourself what this has to do with CBC Radio Canada The answer is that in January 2010 CBC Radio Canada and e Radio Inc teamed up iii to provide electrical utility data to smart appliances through the use of FM airwaves and the ODA Feature Other interesting RBDS features not currently in use at CBC Radio Canada are Traffic Program TP Traffic Announcement TA and Program Type Name PTYN just to name a few RBDS System Design Implementation At the time this article was written CBC Radio Canada s RBDS data were broadcast on all 39 Espace Musique FM transmitters on 10 Radio Two FM transmitters and on a handful of Radio One and Première Chaîne FM transmitters throughout the country Design considerations and implementation were challenging due to the following facts CBC Radio Canada s regional radio content and audio program feeds are sent to Montreal for the French Networks and to Toronto for the English Networks Then all program feeds are uplinked and distributed over satellite out of Montreal and Toronto These program feeds are made available with the use of a 4 5 m satellite antenna at the majority of our transmitter sites Only a handful of FM transmitters are linked to a regional production centre via a Studio to Transmitter Link STL The design required a system that can be scalable for more than 600 FM transmitters 607 FM transmitters to be exact iv in the event RBDS would be deployed nation wide on all Radio One Première Chaîne and Radio Two FM transmitters The source RBDS dynamic data are an IP based whereas the majority of CBC Radio Canada s transmitter sites do not have an IP or LAN connection as most of our broadcast towers and FM transmitters are in remote locations and in difficult mountainous terrain Figure 7 CBC Radio Canada s RBDS system design Let s start by looking at the RBDS source data provided by Media Presentation servers in Toronto and Montreal The dynamic Radiotext information that eventually makes it to the RBDS encoders is centralised in Montreal for the French radio networks and in Toronto for the English radio networks The song s information artist and title or the name of the on air show is included in a playlist generated by a third party software called Sonart

Radio Canada since June 2011 and has been in the IT service business for more than 20 years He was previously Director of Services Administration responsible for the cost optimisation of IT services at Bombardier Aerospace He took an active role in the replacement of the printer fleet as a way of significantly reducing service costs and optimising print usage worldwide POP An Example of Service Oriented IT Delivery Best IT Business Practice Introduction The Print Optimisation Program POP currently underway at CBC Radio Canada is an innovative project in many ways The use of new efficient printing copying and faxing devices combined with a respect of optimal Information Technology IT project management principles makes the most of a progressive deployment strategy that generates short term benefits and the application of the printing industry s best practices all in the interest of providing better services at lower costs The following IT guiding principles were underlined throughout the project IT as a service emphasise simplicity and quality of service all whilst minimising impact on the client User friendly interfaces make ample use of touch screen technology multifunction devices and Web interfaces Global service availability seize the advantages offered by Web based services mobile service and digital communication Environmental sustainability put the accent on footprint reduction and low energy consumption Rapid return on investment an approach that provides quick wins and short cycle delivery Corporate solution deliver a company wide solution that includes a reduction in the number of vendors and the amount of outsourcing Proactive approach make the most of monitoring services alert generation process automation and continuous improvement Let s take a more detailed look at how the project was carried out and the benefits that it generated Business Context In 2010 CBC Radio Canada started working toward optimising its global printing services Three main IT principles were applied in the execution of this project the original goal was not only to save money but also to become an even better corporate citizen by reducing CBC Radio Canada s environmental footprint reducing paper consumption within the organisation by 25 and improving the overall quality of printing services across the corporation The project began with a pilot implementation in Ottawa in 2011 and together with CBC Radio Canada s Technology Strategy Board TSB IT quickly recognised the benefits of the program and its clear return on investment The estimated average cost of printing per page went from approximately six cents down to roughly four cents these figures encompass both black white and colour printing combined Following the success of this pilot implementation CBC Radio Canada s Board of Directors gave the project its final approval in November 2011 after reviewing the five year plan and the financial benefits of an enterprise wide implementation CBC Radio Canada started to replace its aging and obsolete printers and copiers with state of the art Energy Star i certified multifunction printers which provide a full set of services and features Maintaining the current printing fleet had become very expensive and inefficient mainly due to the high price of toner and the level of technical support it required CBC Radio Canada has chosen to properly dispose of the old devices while replacing them with the newest and most efficient printers available on the market The new fleet is made up of a limited number of efficient models made by Lexmark and Canon which made the deployment process simple and efficient In order to give employees the ability to easily access the new printers within their offices or remotely without IT intervention in fact a Web based interface was created to facilitate self service which is available on CBC Radio Canada s Intranet In 2002 CBC Radio Canada chose to create an environmental policy and optimising the organisation s print services had to follow the guidelines laid out in that policy In order to comply with it CBC Radio Canada had to reduce the number of devices recycle older printing equipment printers copiers fax machines and replace them with environmentally friendly equipment The new devices are compliant with the highest standards in health and safety and they do not contain harmful substances Given that the new devices emit no fumes they contribute to better air quality within the workplace CBC Radio Canada has selected two preferred vendors Lexmark and Canon who offer the best equipment in a variety of categories and established a good business relationship with both vendors The program creates even more added value by leveraging the organisation s buying power in volume purchases and a five year service commitment This is the very definition of an enterprise wise

sectors administration banking insurance high technology etc He is business focused user concerns conscious and result driven Business Intelligence at Work for CBC Radio Canada Managers What Is Business Intelligence Business Intelligence BI is a phrase we have been hearing a lot these past few years in the corporate and IT management worlds This deceptively simple term refers to all disciplines processes and systems that help managers make decisions a complex field indeed given that managers base their decisions on a wide range of information sources As such BI encompasses All types of reports statistical reports dashboards or scorecards including performance indicators etc Predictive models based on historical data time series forecasting or correlated interpretive data regressive models Client segmentation or classification models widely used in target marketing Prospective models for determining long term trends and Scenario analyses for determining potential cases situations with an eye to optimising the programming schedule for instance One of the initial activities involved in implementing a Business Intelligence system is to create and maintain a foundation supported by a Data Warehouse i DW that is viable scalable and modelled after current and future corporate needs A Data Warehouse is a prerequisite for providing managers with the information they need for decision making In more concrete terms the data warehouse manages historical data in operational systems OnAir ii SAP etc the data change history as well as the quality and integrity of corporate data with an eye to helping managers make decisions based on accurate unbiased statistics and information The key BI players are the decision makers from the various business units within the organisation Without them it is hard to establish the business rules and decision making processes underpinning the BI system Strategic Thrusts Introducing BI practices at CBC Radio Canada has helped enhance and increase analysis possibilities in many of the Corporation s areas of activity The main ones include sales and marketing finance human resources programming and contract management The BI teams have focused their efforts on setting up data warehouses in these various areas to produce management reports This information was rolled out in DW format primarily on a departmental basis to support operational managers in their tasks with their teams These tasks are still poorly integrated with one another which limits the ability to perform tactical and strategic cross sectional corporate analyses CBC Radio Canada has therefore reached a point where it needs to strive for greater integration to enhance the value of BI This requires action on three levels Data management foundation Analysis tools and Governance model Data Management Foundation The data foundation relies on the corporate DW a corporate database that interrelates all CBC Radio Canada data regardless of their origin This foundation includes the Data Warehouse s feed processes as well as the processes for ensuring corporate data quality and integrity One of BI s priorities is to continue building on this foundation by introducing greater flexibility into the CBC Radio Canada warehousing system

Administrator Development Team Lead Syndication Manager Project Manager and his current role of Platform Product Manager His team manages the platform of tools used to publish and distribute content to the audience via CBC ca Market Need Currently it is widely known and documented that the public is consuming online video content through an increasingly complex ecosystem of interfaces These range from the more traditional Web browser interface of a personal computer to tablets mobile phones gaming consoles and Internet connected televisions Each of these interfaces has different capabilities in terms of rendering and displaying video content and each one can operate under a variety of network conditions Adaptive Bitrate ABR video streaming is a strategy used to maximise the audiences experience regardless of the device they have selected to consume content What Is ABR What Does Bitrate Mean As mentioned above the quality of video one is able to consume is based on several factors The computing power of the device displaying the video The screen resolution of that device and The speed of connection to the Internet All of the factors above can vary from one consumer device to another Beyond that what is even more difficult to manage is the fact that computing speed and Internet connection speed may vary from one second to another not to mention that devices manage many applications simultaneously and use of the Internet generally rises and falls accordingly Given a sufficient quality of interface how good a digital viewing experience can be is generally defined by the audio and video resolution as well as the audio and video quality When dealing with video resolution is the number of pixels described in the signal and in the case of audio it is the sample rate and number of channels mono stereo 5 1 etc Given a specific format codec of video content the more data that can be delivered over a specific time period the higher the resolution and quality that can be described in a signal This is true in traditional broadcasting and this truth still applies in the case of digital delivery The digital terminology for data is bits and the amount of data that can be delivered in a set period of time is the bitrate ABR vs MBR In order to deal with the multitude of consumption conditions described above content producers have developed the strategy of offering many bitrates to their audience This strategy known as Multi Bitrate MBR allows each audience member to receive video at an appropriate bitrate given the consumption conditions noted above Anyone familiar with YouTube in other words everyone will likely have seen the option that their standard player offers to allow users to select a bitrate on almost all videos Figure 1 YouTube bitrate selector For a working example try this link Adaptive Bitrate ABR means more than just a producer offering multiple bitrates of video to their audience but also the functionality to constantly and automatically adapt the bitrate depending on the circumstances This is what YouTube s recently added Auto setting as seen in figure 1 enables It is offered by many content producers and aggregators including CBC Radio Canada The following sections describe how this technology works and the interfaces that support it How Does ABR Work Renditions This is where things take a turn towards the technical As described above MBR is a pre requisite for ABR As such the first requirement is for several video files or several live video streams to be available at different bitrates The first key to the success of MBR ABR video is the selection of appropriate bitrate versions renditions of a piece of video for a producer s audience This is best done based on research into the consumption conditions network connection computing power display resolution of the audience For example if delivery takes place through a private Intranet with lots of available bandwidth making only high bitrate options available may be sensible On the other hand if the video is being delivered to rural regions or to a mobile audience who will retrieve the video signal through an inconsistent cellular connection and view it on smaller screens more low bitrate options will lead to a better viewing experience There is no specific science to this it is the usual cycle of market research which can be broken down into three steps Educated Guess Implementation and Measurement of consumption and audience feedback There are numerous other technical details such as key frame synchronisation beyond the scope of this article that a producer must consider in order to deliver the best audience experience See the Further Reading section for links to this information Another pre requisite for ABR is a manifest file which is a text file that contains at least a listing of all the bitrates available for a given piece of content and a description of each including its bitrate rendition file locations and the like When an audience member loads a video this file is loaded first by the media player so that it can understand what its options are

  • File-based Workflow
    World Contributors LinkedIn Facebook Twitter Print Email File based Workflow Gregg Antworth first worked as a general technician camera editing directing at cable television companies in New Brunswick and Ontario before joining CBC Halifax in 1984 as a casual technician performing various jobs like Master Control Operator Telecine Technician and Editor In 1986 he was promoted to full time staff and has held several positions since then ENG Editor Senior Production Editor Technical Instructor Supervisor of Post Production Services Technical Support Services and Manager Technical Operations In 2006 Gregg transferred to CBC Toronto to become Manager Video Post Production and lead the Toronto Production Centre High Definition Conversion project In 2007 Gregg was promoted to Senior Manager Post Production Graphic Design Pierre Lemieux s career started off in Montreal as a Post production technician for La Sette Vision Globale and Pixcom during the 1990s Following that he was part of the team that launched Global Montreal in 1997 where he filled a variety of technical positions prior to being promoted to Production Coordinator He was recruited by BCE Téléglobe in 2000 to fill the position of Technical Officer Broadcast Centre where he expanded his network of international clients such as CNN the BBC and NHK amongst others Pierre joined Radio Canada Montréal in 2001 as a Production Assistant Resources Desk within the News department and then became Assistant Director He was promoted to Technical Director Post production in 2005 went onto become Senior Advisor and Coordinator Post production in 2007 and became Director Post production Closed Captioning Services in 2009 Introduction The File based Workflow project currently being undertaken at CBC Radio Canada is revolutionary in the sense that it is a large change management project that affects the way in which our media operations employees do their jobs the tools that they use and the workflows that they follow It simplifies their lives adds value to our operations and minimises costs for the Canadian taxpayer by making content more accessible throughout the Corporation and the variety of media platforms that we use Prior to the implementation of File based Workflow when content was produced multiple videotape copies needed to be made to allow that content to be distributed edited screened and for any other number of purposes That infrastructure was enough years ago when CBC Radio Canada had only a radio platform a television platform and a small Internet platform however times have changed Today we distribute our content on upwards of forty different platforms including the traditional ones as well as Tou tv smartphones tablets Netflix and iTunes amongst others As such a new infrastructure and workflows had to be created to make content accessible across all platforms with a minimal amount of effort duplication and File based Workflow has allowed CBC Radio Canada to do that all whilst reducing production costs in the process The goal of this article is to give you an overview of what File based Workflow has meant for CBC Radio Canada s English Services what it is coming to mean to its French Services and how the French and English Services are cooperating with each other to ensure maximum added value and efficiency Perspectives English Services Infrastructure Within the English Television Network File based Workflow was officially implemented in September 2006 starting with Air Farce and the Rick Mercer Report In the time that has gone by since then our physical infrastructure has been reduced substantially thanks to a very significant reduction in the amount of Video Tape Recorders VTRs and the infrastructure associated with them i e routers patch fields racks and the like Racks have been eliminated from all Edit Suites and only a handful of VTRs are left to deal with contingencies that might arise As a result of all this power usage within the Post production Design department is down the department s physical layout has been reduced by approximately 16 000 square feet and tons of electronic waste were sent to Barrie ON to be recycled Content ingestion now takes place within English TV Network s Media Conversion Centre where the workstations that perform the content ingestion either live from the studios or from other sources are located Due to the multiplicity of devices being used to create content nowadays the main challenge in the context of content ingestion lies in supporting the wide variety of formats in which the content might be presented Given the constant evolution in the use of file formats and the rate at which technology develops it is impossible to predict what the next big thing might be as such it is our responsibility to be agile flexible and prepared for new kinds of physical media and codecs at all times Fortunately the technological infrastructure of the Media Conversion Centre allows cost effective off the shelf additions to be made in order to handle format changes More than just flexibility content ingestion through the Media Conversion Centre provides another key benefit when compared to CBC Radio Canada s old VTR based infrastructure time During the ingest process transfer is seamless and virtually instant just as long as we know the format of what is being ingested At this point most of the content is shot in XDCAM 50 and we find that it is an eminently suitable acquisition format for CBC Radio Canada s needs Once content has been ingested it resides on two large Avid ISIS servers in Toronto one for news and another for non news content where content is accessible to anyone who has a username and password as well as rights to the content given that content protection is a vital part of File based Workflow E g when dealing with investigative programming like The Fifth Estate the importance of protecting the content from outside access cannot be overstated Content on the servers is then accessible from any CBC Radio Canada location through our Next Generation Converged Network NGCN The biggest challenge that we are facing right now

implemented or tried out over the years The idea behind RPT is being able to produce programs remotely with a pared down location staff Production teams such as audio and video switchers camera controllers VTR people and production teams can remain in our well equipped facilities and make optimal use of them Several Olympic Games have used a similar concept feeding all the sources to Montreal and Toronto through digital transmission links and editing and producing in Montreal instead of from a remote location Obviously the equipment used for the Olympics varied depending on the time and the workflow from one period to another Everything had to be started from scratch each time As a result we were looking for a transmission system standardised here in one of the technical equipment centres at the Maison de Radio Canada MRC consisting of a terminal that could receive around eight HD camera feeds with attached audio simultaneously and two way control and Internet links The idea was to be able to easily direct all this traffic to whichever MRC studio was available The terminal at the remote location is set up in a small 18 foot cube van that can easily be moved to the site of the event The equipment does not need to be set up for each event only the audio video peripherals for the camera operators as well as other technical and production staff need to be set up With this concept in mind we had to find technology that met our criteria CBC Radio Canada implemented a Canada
