Russian broadcaster reaches millions of viewers with SeaChange platform
Looking for a high level of reliability and performance, Moscow’s TV Centre has deployed a new playout video server platform based upon SeaChange International digital video systems. The broadcaster is airing a mix of news, sports and entertainment programming to an audience of more than 96 million viewers throughout 79 regions of Russia plus to the worldwide network of TV Centre International.
TV Centre is using SeaChange’s Broadcast MediaLibrary/MediaClient digital video platform, which consists of BML servers and SeaChange MCL codecs that easily fit with any device in a broadcast operations workflow and support any video output, from SD and HD play-to-air to broadband streams. Designed to support a wide range of automation and asset management systems, the SeaChange platform at TV Centre is working in conjunction within a file-based workflow.
SeaChange’s regional partner in Russia, I.S.P.A., provides local support to TV Centre.
