Thomson brings tapeless production to the Baltics

Baltic channel PBK has implemented a tapeless production system for news and programming from Thomson. Based in Riga, Latvia, PBK broadcasts to all three Baltic states (Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania) via satellite and cable systems.

At the heart of the new system are two Grass Valley K2 media servers equipped with 3TB of RAID storage using the AppCenter Pro management software. To edit the predominantly P2-acquired material, a number of Grass Valley EDIUS workstations are connected directly to the storage LAN, which are used both for news production and for promos and trailers.

For field editing, a notebook computer loaded with EDIUS software is employed. The complete solution also includes desktop facilities for news editors to browse facilities, edit MXF metadata and perform rough cut editing to be finished on one of the EDIUS systems.
