Kompas TV is an Indonesian television station network based in Jakarta, Indonesia. Kompas TV is a television content provider owned by Kompas Gramedia Group, the largest media conglomerate in Indonesia with an audited circulation of over 600,000 daily copies. Since its launch on September 2011 with the tag “Indonesian Inspiration", Kompas TV has been managed by Etere as its core element.
Kompas TV counts with an Etere-based tapeless workflow featuring a streamlined capture, edit, catalog and deliver of media content by enhancing them with speed and efficiency. The tapeless workflow system is able to interconnect under only one framework the various station departments including the Archive, Studios, Post-Production, Media Management, Traffic, Newsroom and Playout.
Nowadays, where News departments make emphasis on the most efficient way to manage their contents and execute the editorial process, Kompas TV requests a solution tightly connected to its content management system and its newsroom computer system capable of providing the most comfortable environment for working with news.
Etere answers to this request with an improved and evolutionary workflow cemented on a distributed system able centralize the decision-making, content creation and monitoring of the news broadcast over one integrated system, thus, maintaining the consistency between the newsroom, the production and the playout departments.
This paper describes a solution able to closely interact with the station’s Newsroom computer and post-production systems, allowing ingesting and transferring content contemporaneously, editing growing files directly on the central shared storage and playing content simultaneously to its transferring, al this, thanks to the “streaming” technology provided by the Etere’s MTX servers.
