TV Bandeirantes streamlines news workflow

Sao Paulo, Brazil-based TV Bandeirantes has selected the Leitch NEXIO NewsNet server newsroom system from Harris and a range of Harris content management and distribution products spanning media ingest through storage, news production, post production and playout to provide a streamlined workflow throughout the content delivery chain. TV Bandeirantes reaches 94 percent of television households in Brazil via 77 broadcast channels. It will use the NEXIO NewsNet system to transmit a variety of programming, including local network news, 24-hour news and sports.

The Leitch NEXIO NewsNet system is composed of a NEXIO transmission server system, NEXIO NewsFlash networked editing systems and a NewsFlash Preditor low-resolution browse and edit solution, all connected to a shared storage system. The system enables a news operation to ingest, edit and air material without requiring content transfer.

The system also includes the Ingest Control Manager function to streamline acquisition; Rundown Manager, a MOS-enabled gateway and play-to-air system; NEXIO Remote, which enables control of up to four NEXIO channels over a standard LAN connection; and the NEXIO Playlist event sequencing application. In addition, the system features 14TB of storage in a mirrored configuration.
