Icelandic National Broadcasting Service selects Matrox Extio KVM extension units to manage workstation noise and stability issues
The Icelandic National Broadcasting Service (INBS) is an independent public service broadcasting organization responsible for operating two radio channels and one television channel. Headquartered in Reykjavik, INBS also runs three regional radio programs, while concurrently fulfilling its civic obligation of promoting Iceland’s language, history, and cultural heritage.
Interested in modernizing their outdated radio equipment, INBS outfitted all eight of their studios with new systems, which included playout servers, recording machines, and script PCs. Despite already having computers in each studio, the new installation required additional workstation and server support, leading to a noticeable increase in fan and hard drive noise. The heightened noise levels proved to be too distracting for studio members, forcing INBS to move the hardware to designated Central Technical Area (CTA) rooms.
