CNBC Europe upgrades with Pebble Beach Systems

CNBC has selected a Pebble Beach Neptune system to automate the transmission of its main news channel as part of an upgrade to its broadcast facilities. The system forms part of an overall migration to a file-based workflow, allowing CNBC to streamline its operations. The network was keen to improve the functionality of its system and wanted to upgrade to a system that could handle the dynamic news operations of its 24-hour service, efficiently and reliably.

The upgrade will be Pebble Beach’s second installation at CNBC’s European headquarters. The broadcaster chose to build on its existing infrastructure to provide the playout of its main news channel and three regional lists.

The Neptune system integrates with a Building4Media news solution, which was provided to deliver a complete end-to-end file-based workflow of media tasks including ingest and editing using Apple hardware. Neptune uses custom-developed software to allow control of the B4M system and populates its playlists using XML files that contain metadata about the ingested clips.
