Telecapri: On-Air with Etere17 December 2020
Etere has helped Telecapri to strengthen its role in the local market and achieve its business objectives to be "A Window to the world, a cinema at home and a mirror of the city."
Telecapri is a leading local broadcaster in Southern Italy founded in 1977 by brothers Costantino and Claudio Federico. It has an independent programming based mainly on classic and arthouse films, Neapolitan and Italian comedies, entertainment programs and cartoons.
Telecapri reaffirms its role as a leading local Campania broadcaster by strengthening its programming and role in the market, especially its association with the local reality market for information, entertainment and sports such as Calcio Napoli. Telecapri envisioned to be "A window on the world, a cinema at home and a mirror of the city."
The TV station is ready to take the next step up in terms of interoperability to achieve a higher level of productivity across multiple departments in the media lifecycle. With the global restructuring, Telecapri will continue to expand its programming to offer sports, cinema, fiction, Neapolitan music and more to its lineup. In addition, the station will leverage on a newly acquired virtual studio for its newsroom to facilitate live outdoors broadcasting with the use of portable radio links. The Etere application enables a remote connection to all devices in the control room including video and audio switcher, light mixer, VTRs, playout, title machines, generic GPI devices and multiviewer.
Etere was selected based on its capability to achieve these business objectives together with Telecapri team, with its tightly integrated and modular solution that seamlessly connects all areas of the production workflow with a single system. All workflows can be customised to fit not only the present needs of the station but also its needs in the future. Furthermore, its modular capabilities and complete scalability support the station's future plans for global restructuring.
As part of its vision to enhance its position in the local market, Etere was selected to serve:
■ "Magnificent 7" of Telecapri's channels, namely, TCN Telecapri News, a single-issue broadcast linked to local information
■ TCS Telecapri Sport, a single-issue broadcast on regional sports
■ Radio Stations, Napoli Calcio; Radio Capri, Radio Antenna Capri and Telecapri Super Station
■ National broadcaster, Retecapri, with its three current channels: Capri Store, Capri Casino and Capri Fashion
The radio stations have a history dating back to the earliest monopoly liberation days. Furthermore, Telecapri Super Station, is set to be the voice for the whole of southern Italy.
Telecapri was known for films and entertainment programs. The TV station has planned for a global restructuring project that includes a newsroom with an all-new virtual studio for live outdoor broadcasting. The project is set to facilitate Telecapri's expanded program lineup and elevated program delivery for its audiences with offerings in the categories of sports, cinema, fiction and more, across 6 channels. In addition, Telecapri includes a 24/7 program for its news channel with news journalists located across 2 locations in Capri and Naples.
In order to achieve its goals, Telecapari needed an efficient system with an integrated management of broadcasting workflows.
