California government access facility buys Crispin automation

The City of Torrance, a California government access facility, has selected Crispin to provide support for the city’s cable channels. Applications include support for satellite recording, media ingest, asset management and control of four channels for on-air playback.

System 2000 is designed with redundancy and air protection features. Crispin’s on-air playback application, RapidPlayX, provides playlist monitoring and control for four on-air channels, allowing the city to create and load playlists, edit events, issue playlist commands and monitor event status.

RapidPlayX automatically loads daily programs and record schedules for 24-hour operations. It instantly updates events when new material is available on the video server or is updated in AssetBase, Crispin’s Web-enabled database.

Crispin’s eight-port DeviceServer controls Sony VTRs, Omneon MP-6 servers, 360 Image Server video servers, DekoCast master control switchers and a Leitch router. The RecordScheduler automatically records program events. Operators can manually record events or can create daily schedule program templates.
