SAVI chooses Nevion media transport solutions for live productions at Planet Hollywood’s PH Live

Newly renovated theatre to host Britney Spears’ new Las Vegas residency, Britney: Piece of Me

LAS VEGAS, 22 January, 2014 Specialized Audio Visual Inc. (SAVI) has chosen Nevion Flashlink and VikinX solutions to provide HD video transport, routing and switching for the newly renovated PH Live theatre at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. The venue, which is the largest theatre on the Las Vegas Strip and the largest of its kind in the United States, has been renovated for Britney: Piece of Me, Britney Spears’ new residency, which started on 27 December, 2013. The Nevion solution enables PH Live’s video network to transport more than 100 HD video feeds – for cameras, monitors and production – to multiple locations throughout the venue.

SAVI, which specialises in the design and build of live performance AV systems for major performance venues and casinos, worked closely with Nevion to design an event solution using the VikinX Sublime 64x64 optical router and multiple Flashlink Compact II optical conversion platforms. The project required more than 100 HD-SDI inputs and outputs to be routed and transported to multiple locations over a fiber infrastructure. Using Flashlink Compact II’s built-in coarse wave division multiplexing (CWDM) filters, SAVI was able to optimise the HD video network throughout the venue.

SAVI chose Nevion having used its solutions for previous projects including the Motor City Casino in Detroit. “Nevion was able to provide the best solution for this project based on their products’ small footprint, low power consumption and high-density fiber capacity,” said Michael Weirich, general manager, SAVI. “We also have a great relationship with the Nevion team and value their excellent support.”

Nevion’s new Flashlink Compact II optical conversion solution is the highest-density video-over-fiber product in the industry. The compact, 1RU frame features built-in CWDM filters and provides 36 channels supported by multiple electrical-to-optical and optical-to-electrical conversions. The highly efficient solution provides feature-packed, multi-channel conversion with low resource requirements for long-term cost savings.

Nevion’s VikinX Sublime optical router supports small form factor pluggable (SFP) optics including CWDM lasers. It integrates the optical conversion layer to the broadcast management system, enabling management of both the router and Flashlink Compact II using the same software. Together they provide a comprehensive solution for 3G/HD-SDI transport, routing and switching.

“We worked in close partnership with SAVI to deliver a complete transport, routing and switching solution,” said Mike Root, Nevion’s senior vice president of sales, Americas. “With their proven track record for reliability, ease of use and installation, low power consumption and compact size, Nevion Flashlink and VikinX solutions are ideal for any professional broadcast application.”

Nevion broadcast solutions are relied on to deliver some of the world’s most high-profile sporting and live TV events including the Academy Awards, Major League Baseball, Olympic Games, presidential inaugurations and NASA shuttle launches.
