Some Of Our Projects
This is our first time using software product from MOG Technologies, and doing after support of their mxfSPEEDRAIL F1000. They have a great performance of mxfSPEEDRAIL F1000 for CNN Indonesia’s digital media workflows, and they have always done with excellent reliability.
Over the years ERR acquired 3 mxfSPEEDRAIL HD-SDI recorders, 2 of them are currently in the Post-Production department. The units are successfully covering live events, such as the 2017 Estonian Presidency of the EU Council where technical quality guidelines need to be strictly followed. mxfSPEEDRAIL S1000 really fits our production workflow due to its reliability and ability to edit-while-capture. MOG’s has proven to be a valuable partner in providing quick support whenever we needed them.
We are using the following products from MOG for Ingest purpose: MOG S-1000 and MOG-F-1000
We are running 7 news channels (24×7) from RFC HO and 3 channels (ETV News Kannada, ETV News Bangla, and ETV News Gujarat) from their respective state capitals. So we are using the above-mentioned products frequently and they are meeting our requirements. The newly introduced MOG O-1000 makes life easier for the archival team. The workflow is simple and easy to use.
In 2015, we had the requirement to capture a total of 6 x SDI channel feeds for “Local Program” and others in AVCI-50 HD format. Also sharing the captured file which is stored in Dell NAS Storage to our MAM system for non-linear editing in MAM production workflow.
To serve this demand and having the operational flexibility of our baseband ingest, MOG mxfSPEEDRAIL S1000 let us schedule our recording feed as needed, edit while ingest and include crash recording for a particular event. Another purpose of using MOG is recording “Live Feed and backup”. It is very easy to use the web-browser client to operate the channel recording and the user level is adequate and appropriate for day-to-day operations.
MXFSpeedrail de MOG es una excelente y potente solución de ingesta y transcodificación implementada en los flujos de producción de los principales broadcasters. Con una amplia compatibilidad de formatos, incluso hasta 8K (HEVC265 y JPEG2000).
The greatest benefit mxfSPEEDRAIL has brought to our workflow is the ability to run media transcoding as a parallel rather than a linear process. Before mxfSPEEDRAIL we were limited to ingesting footage only at night when the editors were not using the Avid bays. mxfSPEEDRAIL eliminates this limitation allowing us to ingest/transcode footage around the clock. In addition, the AE’s are more productive because they can continue working while Speedrail processes footage rather than sitting around waiting for their Avid’s to finish transcoding.
The dependency on the MOG ingest is 100% as our premium and time critical ingest is relying on this workflow. The solution is quite easy and seamless to integrate while integrated into our production and workflow.
I have been successfully using my mxfSPEEDRAILS for years. My mxfSPEEDRAIL have increased productivity and freed up Avids that were being used as ingest machines. If I have an incoming feed or a tape that needs to be ingested I use the SPEEDRAILS giving me both high resolution and proxy at the same time. My mxfSPEEDRAILS have been used on a variety of shows over the years: Grammys for at least 5 years; Kathy Griffin Bravo Special; for sitcoms like Nickelodeon; Wendle & Vinnie (20 episodes); The Thundermans (58 episodes and another season coming). Great post workflow, getting the proxies to the editor during the shooting day is critical especially if they do audience playbacks.
mxfSPEEDRAIL has been a great help when it comes to digitizing content. The flexibility of the product, the ability to control it from any workstation using its web interface with video preview makes it a perfect tool to digitize content and keep productivity high by avoiding the need to move between workstations.
mxfSPEEDRAIL solved our overflow recording issues economically and efficiently. The ease of integration along with the continued development of software makes this an easily justifiable purchase. mxfSPEEDRAIL allows us additional channels of recording capabilities in times when there are just too many events occurring at the same time. The system integrates with our Avid system seamlessly. mxfSPEEDRAIL writes directly into our Avid ISIS storage and checks the asset into Interplay for immediate use by our editing systems. The support from the company on this product is excellent, although the system hasn’t needed much since we installed it. I continue to be impressed with the system, its ease of use and its continual development.

By using mxfSPEEDRAIL we can ensure the quality of our mxf files and the full compatibility with all major broadcast formats. The system is very easy to install and completely stable, allowing us to speed up our production processes and save on resources.
