Triveni Digital GuideBuilder provides PSIP solution for ABC
Triveni Digital, a subsidiary of LG Electronics (LGE), has announced that its GuideBuilder-based network PSIP management system will be used by the ABC television network to aid distribution of its HD network programming information.
The new solution leverages the company’s GuideBuilder Network VANC Receiver (NVR) module to give ABC affiliate stations a convenient means of making last-minute changes to information in their HD program streams — including program schedules, parental guidance ratings, or emergency updates.
ABC’s HD network delivers regular HD video and audio, along with information in the VANC data band including last-minute updates for closed captioning, V-Chip, and PSIP data, as well as other critical overrides provided by a central network administrator. Triveni Digital’s network PSIP management configuration is being made available to ABC affiliate stations to extract the information carried in the VANC data band and incorporate it into PSIP data for local delivery. The system provides network affiliates with immediate scheduling and critical DTV system information updates as they happen.
