France 3, a French broadcaster located in Britany, has upgraded its news production facilities with fully networked Thomson Grass Valley brand digital news production solutions (DNPS).

The France 3 Nantes Regional Center has moved to a virtually tapeless workflow model, complete with NLE and video server playout products configured in a shared storage environment. The products include several Grass Valley M-Series intelligent video digital recorders (iVDR), a NewsQ Pro automated playback system, FeedClip interactive feed capture system and NewsEdit nonlinear editor. Multiple ingest and editing workstations share media and completed projects across a networked attached storage (NAS) array based on serial ATA technology.

Thomson will also support France 3 through its Systems Group and Customer Service organization.
