TVI to upgrade newsroom infrastructure

Belgium RTL group subsidiary TVI has selected Dalet OpenMedia to upgrade its newsroom infrastructure. The digital newsroom system will be implemented in the new RTL facilities. The targeted on-air date is December 2006.

According to Thierry Piette, technical director of TVI, Dalet’s willingness to commit to delivering on such an aggressive schedule was an important factor in selecting OpenMedia. The Dalet OpenMedia system will provide TVI journalists and producers with a fully integrated digital newsroom, he added.

The Dalet OpenMedia newsroom system will integrate a variety of third-party systems, including EVS CleanEdit news production and playout servers, Avid Deko computer graphics and MTB automation. The Dalet OpenMedia e-Regie plug-in will provide advanced timing functions and live-assist counters to operators.

This 24/7 mission critical newsroom system will be deployed on a high-availability HP Microsoft cluster certified system. In addition, a Dalet OpenMedia hot stand-by server is included to ensure an automatic fail-over in case of a hardware failure.
