Topless goes tapeless as Playboy TV UK rolls out digital upgrade with help from Harris

Playboy TV UK has chosen Harris' ADC-100 system for its digital facility upgrade outside London following its success at Playboy TV's headquarters in Los Angeles.

The system will fully automate the control and playout of program material for 10 channels. There are currently three existing Playboy channels originating from the UK - Playboy TV and The Adult Channel, both international and Spice Extreme, a UK-only service.

Seven additional channels are scheduled for launch later this year. The transmission storage system will be comprised of Pinnacle Systems mirrored digital video servers using MediaStream 900si under Harris Automation control.

ADC-100 is a system that fully automates the dubbing, management and playout of program material from video disks to VTRs, and supports a full range of GPI-controlled devices. The ADC series provides newsroom automation to full station automation or off-line operations, compilation and caching.

Broadcast Systems Integrator, TSL, a UK company was the coordinator on the project.
