VectorBox Automates Playout For TV2 East Jutland's New Community Channel

Denmark broadcaster puts Vector 3 automation technology at the core of their new community driven channel.

Barcelona, Spain – December 3, 2009 - Vector3™, a pioneer in graphics and playout solutions, announced that TV2 East Jutland, Denmark, has purchased the VectorBox solution to manage the playout automation at Channel East Jutland.

TV2 East Jutland is one among 8 regional TV-stations referring to TV2 Denmark. In addition to supplying TV2 Denmark with live regional news programs, TV2 East Jutland is running the NEW community channel, called Channel East Jutland. A community channel where local public TV-stations, selected by the Danish Radio- and TV-committee, are authorized to create and air programs.

Launched in November 2009, Channel East Jutland is utilizing the VectorBox to manage the storage and broadcast of programs.

"Our new DVB-T Community Channel was going on-air the 1st of November and we had a very short time frame to acquire a solution to automate the broadcast of our programs. We quickly narrowed it down to two systems that could do the job and our choice fell on VectorBox," said Jesper Brandenborg, CFO, TV2 East Jutland. "We chose VectorBox because the system ensured the safe handling of video material in broadcast quality and the transmission of our programs in broadcast quality as well. A crucial element was that VectorBox came as an all-in-one box that included a graphics solution implemented to deal with a very large part of our graphics needed for news. Our demand to acquire a very stable and highly reliable system was crucial and VectorBox, with its multi-channel management, fits perfectly into our existing system and helps us automate a part of our broadcasting on TV 2 as well. I would like to give credit to AVIT-Systems, who managed to deliver and install with such short notice. In less than a month we were on-air with the new channel!"

AVIT-Systems, a premiere system integrator for the Danish broadcast market, lead the design and installation of TV2 East Jutland. Long term Vector 3 business partner Martin Nathan, Product Manager at AVIT-Systems, said of the Vector 3 technology, "We can install the Vector 3 playout solutions with confidence. Their reliability, performance and versatility is well-known and ideal for any broadcast situation, whether they are realizing continuity playout or deploying a more complex multi-channel infrastructure."
