MediorNet replaces several disparate routing systems deployed across the M6 broadcast facility in Neuilly-sur-Seine, bringing a decentralized, consistent, and future-proof approach to the network’s video operation.
M6 is one of the most-watched television networks in the French-speaking world, offering a broad and varied lineup of programs. The previous M6 video routing architecture consisted of various production islands running their own routers and connecting via video tie-lines, a legacy configuration that has typified broadcast operations for the past two decades.
The new MediorNet installation is at the core of a two-year upgrade project currently underway at M6 that began with two studio production galleries and is now focused on the central infrastructure router, managing incoming and outgoing signals, as well as exchanges with production islands. An additional production island is to be integrated later this year.
