GENESIX boosts production of Germany’s biggest TV shows

GENESIX VideoServer with 16 channels shared by 3 MMC control rooms and industry-leading technology made by STRYME.

MMC Studios, Germany’s No. 1 TV and film studios, are best known for more than 100 international feature film productions and co-productions (“Amélie”, “55 Steps”, “Stowaway”, etc.), 10 Oscar nominations, and for being the hotspot for Germany’s biggest and most popular TV shows – “Let’s Dance”, “Deutschland sucht den Superstar”, “The Masked Singer”, and more. State-of-the-art infrastructure, top-quality services and sophisticated high-tech solutions make all the difference. Thanks to STRYME’s ultra-slim GENESIX VideoServer, three MMC control rooms can now access 16 channels simultaneously and benefit from the clear-cut simplicity and safety of just one playlist with instant and easy access to the fill and key clips they need.

When the provider of the predecessor system discontinued support services in Germany, MMC Film & TV Studios needed a new and failsafe playout system for major show productions. “As we no longer wanted to check and re-check two different playlists for the correct fill and key clip, we were looking for a system that would facilitate control room workflows with instant and easy access to clips, combinations and sequences of clips, and ensure a hassle-free playout,” explains Volker Danckwortt, Chief-Operator MAZ-Technics at MMC Studios. “The GENESIX VideoServer made by STRYME was the best solution. STRYME designed the playout of combined fill and key clips to our needs and made sure that the video server’s 16 channels reliably serve three control rooms simultaneously. Now we can work with just a single clear-cut playlist that sometimes provides about 30 different fill and key clips via a user-friendly interface. This makes things so much easier for show productions and post-productions. What’s more, with the new Instant Replay Function we help game show judges to quickly determine a winner. Bottom line: GENESIX boost the quality of our productions, and it’s quality that makes a great viewer experience.
