The University of Lincoln has purchased a single-channel television playout system based on the K Series automation solution from On-Air. The university will install the equipment in its new purpose-built media center when it is completed in March 2006. In the meantime, it will be used in the university’s television studios.
The system will comprise On-Air playKast, a multi-format playout server with feature-sets for live news production control, scheduling, graphics generation, media management, playout redundancy, logging and archiving. On-Air playKast will be networked with On-Air Kapture, a software module for automated program capture.
The University of Lincoln already produces a range of educational programs using its on-site production facilities. These programs will be captured as media files direct from Pinnacle and Avid editing systems using On-Air Kapture.
