RTL Television in Cologne, Germany, has upgraded its Abit broadcast automation system with a complex DVE control algorithm, network management of a file-based DVE storage system and flexible operational functions. The Abit system enables RTL to configure branding specific to the viewing demographics on a channel basis easily. In addition, it enables a flexible advertising strategy up to the point of transmission and the display/routing of multiple sources.
RTL is now able to create DVE effects within a QOS framework and span them across any number of events in addition to incorporating multiple sources. The DVE effect span duration is dynamically controlled to ensure changes to the scheduled commercials and vignettes appear transparent from a viewer’s perspective in a multichannel environment.
