Russian public broadcaster builds tapeless workflow
All-Russia State Television and Radio Company (VGTRK), Russia's state-owned TV and radio broadcaster, has installed multiple Omneon MediaDeck media server systems to support accurate, efficient playout at 11 regional TV stations.
Systems integrator I.S.P.A. Engineering installed the MediaDeck systems along with Omneon MediaControllers and PlayTool and ClipTool Pro software to enable a smooth transition to tapeless operations.
At each of 11 regional stations, the combination of a six-channel SD MediaDeck system with a MediaController panel and PlayTool and ClipTool Pro software maximizes VGTRK's workflow flexibility while supporting content verification and system redundancy.
The MediaController panel enables real-time control of ingest and playout processes, controlling each server channel and simplifying the building and execution of up to 10 independent playlists.
