Danmon Systems Group has completed TV2 FYN-Denmark’s transition from SD to HD.

Danmon was tasked with the delivery, installation and commissioning of a complete HD upgrade to the Danish public service broadcaster’s studios in Odense.

TV2 FYN-Denmark is one of eight TV2 stations and produces content for and about Denmark’s second largest island, Funen.

The upgrade includes a Snell HD router and vision mixer, Studer audio production desk, Miranda multiviewer and glue hardware plus a new reference sync system.

The new equipment is closely integrated with Mosart playout automation which also controls TV2 FYN-Denmark’s robotic studio cameras.

Custom wiring was installed in the central apparatus room including cabling for the HD router.

Danmon had to complete the project while the station was still on air.

“We achieved this by working in close partnership with the channel’s staff, including day to day co-ordination to ensure complete continuity of normal transmission,” said Danmon deputy managing director Peter Thomsen.

“We additionally provided on-air support in the post-handover phase during which we also checked and tidied older parts of the channel’s engineering infrastructure.”
