IBIS is providing a MOS-enabled production control room with playout applications to ESPN.

Over the past nine months, IBIS has been providing PCR playout automation for the new HD control rooms at ESPN headquarters in Bristol, CT.

IBIS’ HD/SD automation suite is a modular 24-hour system. In the ESPN configuration, the system comprises ingest/content acquisition tools and playout applications running with a MOS gateway.

In the past year, IBIS has installed several process management tools working in a multiple video server environment. The applications track the progression of video clips from editing to the rundown process. IBIS’ ServerPlay and ServerLoad are installed at the network. ServerPlay is linked via MOS to ESPN’s ENPS newsroom system.

The MOS-enabled ServerPlay reports and reflects changes to the program rundown from ENPS allowing the playout operator to stay in touch with any editorial changes being made in the newsroom. ServerPlay also allows flexible playout as clips can be played in any order within the playlist using the IBIS ServerPlayOut keypad.
