PTS the most important Tv channel of Taiwan chooses ETERE for it's new playout facility.

04 August 2011

PTS is the state owned and most important channel of existing 5 taipei channels. They choose now ETERE to upgrade the existing 5 channels to HD

Today the structure of PTS is very old, mainly based on Tape with VTR onair controlled from a traditional Louth/harris automation. The upgrade to ETERE is a hudge improvement for PTS, from a traditional system to a new distributed architecture. There are multiple challanges in this new system, mainly the HD/SD mixed media management with the input ports switched on the fly from HD/SD under automation control. Simulcast of SD and HD content with realtime ARC control by automation, item by item. Use of all the legacy hardware including a flexicart cart machine as ingest or playout devices. Fully redundant system able to survive to any single failure of the system. Morover the system will inlcude a new secondary event scheduler to easily play multiple crawls in multiple programs. Please see our attached files for more details on this project. Controlled devices:
- 50 computers
- 2 omneon spectrum
- 4 logo generator evertz
- 4 master control evertz
- 1 sony flexycart
- 14 VTR
Etere a consistent System !
