VTVCab channels go on air powered by Etere04 April 2014
VTV has confirmed ETERE at the core of its system by choosing a MERP solution to manage and bring to air its cable television channels!
ETERE today announced that a modular enterprise-class solution has been implemented for VTVCab, Vietnam's largest cable network, demonstrating to be the sole solution in the market able to provide latest workflow-based technology for the tapeless creation, execution, monitoring and control of all activities of a broadcast station with the maximum flexibility, scalability and cost benefits.
An Etere MERP approach has been deployed to provide a comprehensive system able to manage all activities of 5 VTVCab channels, from ingest to playout, content indexing and metadata insertion to scheduling, archiving to delivery:
■ Full digital ingest of media content
■ Integrated and highly effective QC workflows
■ Content indexing and metadata insertion
■ Planning and preview scheduled events
■ Redundant automation deployment
■ Automatic generation of proxy files for browsing
■ Nearline and deep archive storage for digitized content
■ Highly effective integration of post-production systems
■ Web portal for the tapeless reception of file-based content
Video content is mainly acquired via SDI using Etere Ingest which thanks to a user-friendly interface and preset layouts allows a quick capture of new material; instead, where a file-based acquisition is required, Etere Tapeless Reception is used to enable requested material to be uploaded through a secure and reliable web portal. Both ingest methods comprises a post-ingest workflow management that includes automatic/manual QC, proxy creation, etc.
Etere has perfectly supported the equipment of VTVCab to provide professional multi-format SDI ingest and fully redundant automation playout capabilities:
■ 5 Spectrum ChannelPort playout modules
■ 2 Spectrum MediaDeck media servers
■ 1 Mediagrid shared storage system
■ 2 Baton QC systems
