Broadcast Communications Equipment

WIN customer is the Broadcast Communications division of a Fortune 500 company that has sales well over $1 billion per annum. The division serves international government agencies and commercial markets in more than 150 countries.

The Problem

The company was the company wished to transition from systems based on dedicated video processing standards to the x86 processing architecture. This move was desired to lower Cost of Goods Sold, present better value to the end-user customers, and enable the division to avail itself of the wealth of applications, operating systems, utilities, and platforms found in the world of x86 processing.

This move would require an ODM that could design a SBC and backplane that, in turn, could support high-end video processing -- all while lowering costs, raising performance, and maintaining product quality. The Company required high-performance processing, and an ODM with video processing experience.

The Solution

WIN Enterprises was identified as an Original Design Manufacturer (ODM) to speak with. WIN had a previous video editing customer, and additionally had recently designed a high-end SBC for video processing for a major industry competitor on a project basis.

After successfully developing a prototype SBC and custom backplane--one that would support high-end video processing, the relationship entered an initial manufacturing phase based on a moderate number of annual units. Phase II of the relationship was soon entered upon when WIN proved itself an efficient, low-cost, quality-conscious partner and was given the responsibility of the full manufacturing run for the motherboard.
