Vector MultiPlay solutions pioneer new playout workflow concepts; highly configurable applications with exceptional redundancy management capabilities

Barcelona, Spain – August 13, 2009 - Vector 3™ announced today that they will showcase for the first time at the IBC exhibition, held in Amsterdam from September 11 - 15, 2009 (stand 7C01), the brand new Vector MultiPlay product line. Headlining the new MultiPlay product portfolio are MultiPlay MCR for master control room automation and Multiplay VServers, a wide range of next-generation video servers with live branding. The advanced Vector MultiPlay technology is a quantum leap ahead of its peers in playout automation. With unique flexibility, MultiPlay MCR and VServer can be integrated to create a redundant architecture that leverages the benefits and cost effectiveness of IT-based technology.

"Since the mid-1980’s, Vector has been a proponent of IT workflows within the broadcast market and until now, reliability has the key blocker in its full adoption among TV Stations. Our new MultiPlay product line brings that reliability to IT-based infrastructures; offering broadcasters the industry’s most cost-effective playout solution that is infinitely more resilient than installations using expensive proprietary products,” comments Roman Ceano, general manager of Vector 3. “With MultiPlay, operators can precisely manage resiliency; configuring their MultiPlay applications for specific channels and requirements – giving one channel more redundancy than the other if need be. These versatile MultiPlay options mean broadcasters purchase only what they intend to use – minimizing the costs and maximizing productivity. The highly configurable Vector technology means that MultiPlay can be reconfigured to adapt to the changing operation. This is a revolutionary concept in the world of broadcast technology.”
