France’s parliamentary channel signs contract with Thomson’s Technicolor for news production system

La Chaîne Parlementaire–Assemblée nationale (LCP-AN), the French Parliament TV channel, has contracted Thomson’s Technicolor services division to build and maintain its news production system, the company said this week.

The six-year contract covers the design and creation of a news production system as well as system maintenance and training for the channel's operating teams and journalists. The project will be managed by Technicolor Network Services France.

LCP-AN is a public service broadcaster that informs and educates citizens about public life through programs covering the parliament and society. The channel is broadcast in France via digital terrestrial TV (DTT), cable, satellite and ADSL. The channel offers live and prerecorded broadcasts of parliamentary debates in the Assemblée nationale, a live daily news roundup and weekly and monthly magazine programs.

The new news production system will be installed this summer during a parliamentary recess and is expected to be operational in September 2008.
