BHTV sets up file-based workflow with Video Technics

Beverly Hills Television, run by the city of Beverly Hills, has made the transition to a file-based workflow with two Apella LCS video servers, VT Scheduler and VT Media Exchange software from Video Technics.

Previously, BHTV’s local programming had been produced and aired using a tape-based workflow and a 20-year-old analog automation system, which spanned three separate physical locations.

At Beverly Hills City Hall, BHTV ingests city council meetings directly from four Panasonic AW-E750 SDI cameras to the Apella LCS, cuts out meeting recesses and sends the complete file over the city’s existing Ethernet LAN to master control to be added to the playlist.

At master control, a single 3RU Apella LCS has replaced three racks of analog equipment. The city uses the VT Scheduler software to script satellite feed ingest during off hours. PSAs are edited with Apple Final Cut Pro and finished packages are dragged and dropped into the VT HotFolder. Content is automatically ingested into BHTV’s database.
