Kroenke Sports & Entertainment Scales Up Business Needs with Telestream Vantage | Broadcasting & Cable | CI | Scoop.it

Telestream®, the leading provider of video transcoding and workflow automation solutions, today announced that cable TV sports and outdoor lifestyles giant KSE Media Ventures is relying on four Vantage media processing systems running on Lightspeed servers to create a unified workflow for its sports and outdoor lifestyle channels.

 

While each network has its own unique operational requirements, they share the same basic workflow that spans a broad range of functions, such as media ingest, capturing metadata, adding closed captions, transcoding file formats and quality control.

 

“The workload involved with preparing all this digital media for network delivery is daunting. We’re talking about 50 to 100 shows per channel, along with hundreds of ads and promos every week,” said David Zur, GM & Senior Vice President of Operations & Engineering for Altitude Sports & Entertainment. “In today’s file-centric world, it would be impractical if not impossible for us to perform all these tasks in a manual process.”

 

“That’s why it’s critical for us to integrate these multi-channel workflows into a single, unified environment and automate wherever possible. To do this, we chose Telestream Vantage because it’s a scalable, enterprise-class transcoding platform that has the horsepower to automate and process multiple workflows simultaneously. It’s designed to keep a busy, high volume operation like ours moving.”

Sweden's TV4 has installed ChyronHego products to drive the newsroom and graphics workflow in its new studio, which is being used for all of TV4's sports and newscasts and its morning show. The ChyronHego installation makes for a simple and efficient production process despite the amount of automation and the complexity of the graphics involved.

 

"Our new set design and on-air graphics have a 'wow' factor meant to impress both audiences and advertisers, and that wow factor comes with a lot of technology behind it. At the same time, only a handful of people run the productions, so we rely heavily on automation. Finding a graphics solution that could handle that combination of factors without adding undue complexity was one of our biggest challenges," said Sjöfn Blöndal, project manager at TV4. "ChyronHego understood that we had to keep things simple. They made sure that our many screens and graphics channels ran from templates and could work inside ENPS, but at the same time gave us flexibility in creating editorial graphics."
