AUTOMATION and MAM for MEDIA COMPANIES

Video Release: Multi-Studio, Multi-MAM Sports Automation Design From Sports Video Group Technology Summit 2016

 

New York City – Dec 17, 2016 Aveco®, the worldwide broadcast automation specialist, announces the online video availability of its 12-minute case study presentation at the annual Sports Video Group Technology Summit

 

“We’re honored to present to the Sports Video Group” said Jim O’Brien, President of Aveco. “We serve many of the largest and most complex sports networks of the world and continually develop new features in production automation and master control automation with these great global sports broadcasters. It’s great to get to talk about these innovations with industry leaders behind SVG!”

 

In this presentation, the technology behind Aveco’s accomplishment of a large-scale seven studio complex, that operates as one integrated system, is covered.  It includes integration of multiple Media Asset Management and PAM systems of EVS and Prime Focus. There is also integrated multi-studio control of GV Karrera production switchers, Shotoku camera robotics, EVS video servers, vizrt graphics and virtual sets, as well as audio and lighting.

 

Because of Aveco’s award-winning equipment pool facility management system, studios can easily be combined for major events, productions can be switched from one studio to another with one button click, pool-based rules can tremendously increase efficiency and productivity.

 

Aveco’s integration of production automation with master control automation, in the same system and sharing the same database, is also covered. This ensures a perfectly frame accurate transition between PCR-to-MCR-to-PCR every time thru automated cue exchange.

 

Aveco has the largest library of interfaces and API integrations with all industry manufacturers. As the largest independent automation provider for the TV industry, Aveco enables use of the best products across the broadcast chain – as opposed to “bundled” systems that contain inferior products. 

 

Since 1992 Aveco has led the industry in being the safest and most reliable broadcast automation platform. It’s the only system running on a real-time operating system, QNX, which has till now never had a virus, compared to now approximately one million new viruses and malware attacks per day on the Windows platform.

 

This is increasingly important as multiple studios and multiple locations are tied together in broadcast enterprise networks.  User workstations run Aveco clients on Windows, Linux and Macs – all three simultaneously – with the server core staying safe and reliable. Support is easy – looking like Linux – but real time mission-critical control is extremely helpful for on-air control, where any on-air failure is unacceptable.
