Red Bull Media House relies on STRYME for multicam ingest

In 2019, Red Bull Media House approached STRYME with the request for an easy and intuitive solution to record its global sports, news, culture, and lifestyle content, needing more flexibility, more channels, and a time scheduler as a key feature. Red Bull Media House is renowned for the production and licensing of a broad selection of global live broadcast events, compelling and inspirational local storytelling with original short and long-form programming as well as feature films from around the world.

STRYME’s solution was ingeniously simple: Its flagship product, the ultra-slim 2U GENESIX VideoServer, is the only high-tech server on the market with up to 16 flexible HD-SDI channels and 4K UHD readiness. The easy-to-use failsafe 24/7 system also supports every format and every codec.

STRYME combined the 16 channels with an intelligent web-based time scheduler, enabling Red Bull to record any type of content from anywhere in the world at any time and automatically save it for post-production in the Red Bull’s inhouse database.

Andreas Mikschovsky, Media Systems Engineer at Red Bull Media House, is enthusiastic: “We regularly record live content from all over the world as well as programs at fixed times. Thanks to the time scheduler’s intuitive interface, GENESIX lets us do it almost automatically. Since buying the VideoServer in May 2019, our recording workflows have become so much easier. What’s more, we are able to easily retrieve the content from our database.”
