Tightrope Media Systems Appoints Magna Systems & Engineering as Distributor in Australia and New Zealand

ST. PAUL, Minn. — June 6, 2013 — Tightrope Media Systems, a provider of innovative digital signage, broadcast automation, and video server solutions, today announced it has appointed Magna Systems & Engineering as its new distributor in Australia and New Zealand. Magna will concentrate on Tightrope’s broadcast products, including the ZEPLAY slow-motion instant-replay system and the Cablecast family of all-in-one video servers and broadcast automation software.

“ZEPLAY is ideal for live events because a single ZEPLAY unit can store up to 160 hours of HD footage — 40 hours per channel — all enclosed in a 4-RU, 21-inch deep chassis, making it perfect for flypacks and mobile production,” said Barry Pegg, engineering manager for Magna Systems & Engineering. “ZEPLAY also provides macro programmable GPI inputs and outputs, so users can run tally and easily integrate with existing production systems. The controller also features a T-bar that allows users to play a clip at plus or minus 200 percent speed, and a jog/shuttle wheel with magnetic stops for tactile control. ZEPLAY’s unique software interface allows users to customize and save layouts for a more optimized and efficient workflow. All in all, it’s a very powerful and clever unit.”

“We are very pleased to have a strong distributor and integrator in the Australia/New Zealand region,” said Jay Kirtley, vice president of sales and business development for Tightrope. “Magna Systems & Engineering has a fine reputation for sales and customer support, so it’s the perfect company to introduce Tightrope solutions to customers in the region.”
