HMS delivers Broadcast Automation to Sylt 1


In march 2013, on behalf of TV Link new media GmbH & CO. KG, HMS provided German TV station Sylt 1 with a new Broadcast Automation. Sylt 1 broadcasts from the HMS playout center, where the signal is directly fed into the network of cable TV provider Kabel Deutschland. The developed solution also serves as basis for broadcasting a livestream, that is available in multiple versions via the Sylt 1 website, optimized for desktop and mobile devices.

Sylt 1 decided in favor of a solution that is realized as Managed Service. Operation and maintenance of all involved server hardware is carried out exclusively at the HMS playout center.

This provides many advantages, such as:

  • Very low initial cost
  • Ready to use in a few days
  • Easy upgrade to new requirements
  • No operational cost
  • No manpower needed
  • All hardware maintenance included
  • Redundant high-speed internet connection
  • Uninterrupted power supply
  • Failover hardware
  • 24/7 monitoring
  • Alert Management System 

Sylt 1 is on air since 2009. Since march 2013 the TV station is available to approx. 1.1 million households in digital cable networks of Schleswig-Holstein and Hamburg.
