Turkuvaz Media Group (TMG) is Turkey’s largest private media group operating in television, radio broadcasting as well as news and printed media. When seeking to build a new media centre in Istanbul, TMG turned to TSL Products’ audio monitoring, advanced broadcast control and technical display solutions, across 10 studios and control rooms. Built with systems integrator Teratek, this project consolidates TMG’s distributed studios into one location to improve efficiency, future-proof its capabilities for 4K broadcasting and create a scalable system that is prepared for the group’s future growth.
TSL’s TallyMan advanced control system is one of the only systems available that offers an expansive protocol library by default, allowing TMG to control many different devices without the need for expansive development or additional cost. The TallyMan system is deployed in each of the 10 studios to control routing of Riedel MediorNet and Grass Valley Sirius, as well as controlling logo generator, keyer and bypass switch equipment, combining control of equipment from multiple manufacturers into a single platform. The system also manages and distributes tally across the entire TMG facility.
“Routing control helps users manage signal routes throughout a facility,” explains Gokmen Turhan from system integrator, Teratek. “TSL’s router control functionality provides the flexibility and control to build an appropriate signal path for any given operation and will prove to be a beneficial solution for Turkuvaz Media Group.”
Using Dante, MADI, AES, analogue, SDI and ST-2110 audio formats in different applications, TMG requires audio monitoring solutions that guarantee content quality and quality of service. TSL’s audio monitoring range provides support for different requirements, from multichannel audio level meter displays, audio loudness measurement and audio metadata monitoring. A key challenge for any audio solution is to create and present an operational experience that is both simple and intuitive, regardless of the method being used to carry audio throughout a broadcast facility.
