With the aim of going on air for the first time, Imagen Televisión was looking for an absolutely reliable broadcasting system. The solution required by the new channel had to implement a flow automatic end-to-end continuity, covering the process from exporting the files and video clips to sending them to the broadcast servers.
VSN Multicom, our MCR Software for broadcast automation
Robust automation for your broadcast
Main features included in
Integrated with most baseband devices, the system’s flexibility extends to video servers and redundancy configurations. The system also counts with a powerful meter management to monitor every process.
Along with VSNCrea, it can create content management workflows to speed up and simplify playout as much as possible, including content validation and color customization for each content type.
The system allows to control equipment and actions on three levels: main sources (e.g. broadcast video servers), secondary (video recording, switchovers, beacons, etc.) and auxiliary (graphic elements).
Broadcast channels in sync
Possibility of having different slave channels synchronized with one or more main channels via management of the playlists and control of disconnections for each channel.
Advanced graphics integration
Complete integration with several advanced graphic systems, allowing to deploy all their functionality, enriching and parameterizing the broadcast content.
VSNMulticom, alongside VSNCrea, manages the entire workflows for advertising, production and broadcast, providing schedule creation, EPG export and showings control.

It is the primary application used to automate broadcast channels, it organizes and coordinates all the equipment that takes part in the broadcast. Through its user interface, the operator can interact with the playlists in real time, control the equipment directly or through the Device Server, manage simultaneous operations (recordings, switches, matrix control, syncs, auxiliary events, etc.).
It is an optional application to produce broadcast playlists from a separate workstation, before being sent to the Master Control Room. It is especially useful in collaborative work environments, as it allows other operators to edit simultaneously different playlists. Once the playlists are finished, they are saved so they can be sent to Multicom Play, a process that can be configured automatically.
It is a server module typically installed when connection and disconnection operations, master-slave or parallel redundancies are necessary. In multichannel environments, it synchronizes multiple instances of VSNMulticom in order to offer redundancy of transmission and the management of the disconnection Master.
It is the application that monitors and controls the VSNMulticom channels remotely and in real time, reflecting their status, possible errors and alarms. It is especially useful in work environments with a large number of people, who will have a high visibility of all the processes carried out by the automation system. In addition, it allows monitoring only options, very useful for chain or broadcast managers who wish to follow the actual status of the issue.
