Florical Automates Russian Language Channels

Media Most International is uplinking five channels of Russian language broadcasting from their New York City facility using Florical automation.

The automation system includes a five-channel AirBoss on-air presentation system with two GUI/Device Server workstations, each with a Quick Reaction Control Panel for pushbutton operator control. AirBoss has play-to-air capability from a Profile XP video server or from DVCPRO videotape machines. A Grass Valley 7000 routing switcher provides on-air switching for the five channels.

Leitch Logomotions under Air Boss control are used for automatic channel branding functions. The automation asset management is handled by MediaMaster which manages the contents of two Profile XP servers, automatically transferring needed content from the ingest video server to the smaller play-to-air server.

Media Most International owns the only privately held Russian-language information and television service. The service is independent of the Russian government and reaches 4.5 million international viewers.
