VSNAUTOREC - Overview
VSNAUTOREC is the ingest system which allows simultaneous recordings from tapes, various satellite feeds and/or studios, using automatic or manual mode. Regular recordings can be programmed into a list to the exact hour and day from news agencies.
VSNAUTOREC TERMINAL allows journalists to digitise recordings from their PCs, accessing shared feeds and remotely controlling shared VTRs connected to an A/V router through dedicated capture stations. Users can control VTRs remotely without A/V cabling in the newsroom. Moreover, the system manages waiting lists for accessing VTRs which avoids overlaps with scheduled and manual captures from feeds.
Everything is controlled from journalists PCs, with low resolution capture previews using Windows Media 9 streaming. The system creates a low resolution copy of ingested material in the background for later browsing and editing purposes, while preserving network bandwith for high resolution editing. VSNAUTOREC covers all ingest needs with a user friendly environment, that any non-technical personal can learn, avoiding the need of dedicated technicians.
VSNAUTOREC DIRECTOR controls an audio/video router and intelligently routes the satellite video signal to one of the available recording stations. Captured material, stored in servers by categories, supports simultaneous multi-editing one minute after the recording is started, with the advanced feature of chunking technology.
VSNAUTOREC CAPTURER are dedicated ingest stations which encode video in the following formats: DV25, MPEG-2 4:2:0, MPEG-2 4:2:2 at 50 Mbps and Windows Media 9.
The system can be configured for any number of ingest channels in a modular, scalable way.
