Television Suisse Romande relies on SeaChange to transform workflow
European broadcaster Television Suisse Romande (TSR) has transformed it production and post-production workflow with the SeaChange International MediaLibrary and MediaClient.
Through the open and scalable Network Attached Storage (NAS) and single-copy storage, TSR is establishing universal shared storage for any device and any media file type in the capture, edit and playout chain.
Based in Geneva, Switzerland, TSR is the dominant multichannel broadcaster serving French-speaking Swiss viewers. For its extensive production requirements, it has rolled out three SeaChange Broadcast MediaLibrary (BML) 24000ex systems, making more than 2500 hours of IMX50-MXF online storage available to EVS XT disk recorders for live content acquisition, Avid NewsCutter XP NLEs for post-production and five SeaChange MediaClient codecs.
Today, a five-node BML 24000ex cluster can provide more than 800 hours of storage in IMX50 format and support hundreds of IP-connected devices throughout a broadcast operation. A single media asset stored on a BML can be accessed concurrently by any number of editors and producers. Attached to MediaClients, the BML even supports simultaneous on-air delivery of SD and HD streams from a single media asset.
