Technicolor expands with Pharos Mediator workflow and pilot system control

October 7, 2005

New master control room at Technicolor Network Services UK.

Technicolor Network Services UK, part of the Services division of Thomson, has invested in Pharos Communications workflow management and control systems for its new multichannel playout facility at Chiswick Park, London.

The new facility went on-air in August, with immediate capacity for eight 1+1 resilient channels and capacity for upward of a further thirty channels. The suite supports both SD and HD playout and is designed with scale and cost-efficiency in mind.

Pharos Mediator now plays a central role in the facility, providing workflow management, which integrates asset tracking, rules management, reporting and status. The system delivered includes Pharos Pilot that enables all master control room functions to be performed via touch screens with an intuitive graphic user interface.
