Broadcasters and DTT channels trust vsn automation and DAM solutions

More TV channels are joining the vsn MCR and News Production solutions installed base.

All of them feature news production, live content and master control automation from vsn . Onda Cádiz has also expanded its actual vsn system with a state-of-the-art LTO4 tape robot associated and controlled by vsnarchive

The Spanish (private) national broadcaster La Sexta has recently launched its second channel on air, mainly intended for DTT coverage. Same as their first (analogue and DTT) national broadcasting, vsn multicon has been the selected automation solution to manage the MCR. vsn multicon provides a seamless and robust integration through the control of EVS and Grassvalley servers, Vizrt graphics, master control switcher, etc.

Televisió de Catalunya (TV3) decided to pioneer the HD transition in Spain by launching (several months ago) the first HD pilot channel (through DTT). TV3HD emission control has also been assigned to vsn multicon . This is the 9 th channel on air through different platforms automated by vsn for the Catalan public broadcast company.

In Valladolid , TV Castilla y León is finishing a complex digital archive migration process that will allow the channel to easily access, use and distribute all its legacy content. The latest vsnarchive version facilitates the process, manages the DAM and integrates with the DV Lince live production and newsroom in place since 2002.

Ariston, new vsn dealer in Greece , is moving very fast and getting some very interesting results. After their Athens Open House held in May, 3 Greek TV channels have chosen vsn to automate their ingest, network editing, master control and graphics (NTV Crete, Star Lamia and TRT).

Last but not least, more African broadcasters decided to trust vsn for their recent digitisation processes. vsn France reported new contracts to supply ingest, playout automation, network editing and logo-graphics for ORTM ( Mali ) and T élévision Nationale du Burkina Fasso (TNB) .
