VSN supports the Pontifical Xavierian University in shaping tomorrow's journalists

The Pontifical Xavierian University of Bogota trusted VSN to ensure the perfect integration of their technological solutions with a complete and renewed news production system used daily by hundreds of students and prepared to work in multiplatform environments, different video formats and diverse content ingest sources. VSN now presents a case study on the project that allowed the Colombian university to have the most advanced educational audiovisual production system in the region.

Adapted content management for the university

The Pontifical Xavierian University of Bogotá, a private institution founded in 1623, brings together art, technology, information and communication in the so-called Centro Ático since 2010, an innovative scenario of multidisciplinary convergence where VSN’s media management and news production solutions for student use were integrated.

The key core system of the project was VSNExplorer MAM, an essential tool to meet the specific needs of flow customization, permission hierarchy systems, multi-format environment and integration capability with third-party systems. As a result, the solution provides the Centro Ático with content management adapted to the requirements of the centre.

Advanced news production tools for generations of audiovisual students

In addition to the installation of the Media Asset Management system, the project also included a complete update of the news production system. In particular, hardware and software renewal was carried out through the installation of concurrent licenses of Ross’ NRCS Inception system for the creation of playlists and news (either for traditional broadcast or through social networks), VSNLivecom as a studio playout to automate the production room and control the input and output channels; and the web plugin VSN Newsconnect for NRCS, 100% HTML5, which allows controlling from the NRCS interface the advanced functionalities of the VSNExplorer PAM and MAM modules, and the VSN Wedit video web editing system.

Thanks to the complete integration in a simple HTML5 web interface and a better integration with social networks and third screens, the Xavierian University now has the necessary technology for its students to learn to use advanced news production tools similar to those they will find when they finish their studies in a 100% digital environment.
