MusiquePlus Upgrades Production Studio to HD


Based in Montréal, Québec, MusiquePlus Inc., owned by Astal Media, is a Canadian French language specialty television channel devoted to music and music-related programming from various genres, catering to the young adult demographic. MusiquePlus contracted Applied Electronics to assist with their HD production system upgrade by supplying and integrating a Ross Video Vision Octane series of 1 - 8 MLE production switchers, which come with a dual switcher frame. The Vision Octane switcher solution offers automated interface to MusiquePlus’ server, Telemetrics robotics, CG, and their audio mixer interface.In addition, Miranda Kaleido-X multi-viewers were integrated into both of their production studios and the distribution is done through Miranda interface as well.

As part of the HD upgrade, an Apple Xsan 64-bit cluster file system solution was incorporated with an Isilon IQ X-Series NAS solution using five nodes of X200 series scale-out storage platform for a total of 60 TB of storage. Today, MusiquePlus has 12 FCP stations linked to their Isilon NAS system that offers great stability and future savings.

In September 2011, MusiquePlus celebrated its 25-year anniversary. Applied Electronics congratulates this engaging and innovative entity in the Canadian music and television industry on reaching this major milestone. We look forward to many more years of bold and entertaining programming that MusiquePlus is known for.
