Set in the stunning surrounds of Sydney’s northern beaches, Network Ten’s breakfast show, Wake Up, broadcasts live every morning from Queenscliff Surf Lifesaving Club. With the assistance of local Evertz distributor Quinto Communications, the Ten Network have deployed SPG, routing, modular and multi-viewer technology from Evertz, to deliver the show. Located in a unique beach house site an Evertz 5601MSC Master Reference Signal Generator and Master Timecode generator locked to GPS has been deployed along with Evertz 1200DD and 1201DD rack mount digital clock displays to provide all reference signals, HD test signals and accurate time for the new remote studio. Multiple video feeds from Wake Up, arriving back at the Ten Pyrmont headquarters are synchronised to the Pyrmont plant using Evertz 7746FSE-HD high definition frame synchronisers. Video routing is handled by an Evertz Xenon HDSDI/SDI video routing switcher and an Evertz 7867VIPA24-DUO Multi-viewer has been deployed for Multi-view monitoring of up to 24 HD video sources on two large flat screen displays to handle the additional signal monitoring requirements for the new show. The Ten technology team faced some challenges on this project creating from scratch a new beach house studio, right on the ocean front, in a hostile salt water environment, linked back to their main Pyrmont facility and capable of producing two hours of live television daily.
