BCE helps NOVA go tapeless3 September 2007
BCE has delivered a digital broadcasting platform for NOVA TV, the Bulgarian TV station, which is finding that a complete tapeless platform is giving it the ability to manage the whole broadcasting workflow in a fast, flexible and reliable way.
As part of the second phase of the project, NOVA TV made its first news production using its digital production facilities on 18 August. The tapeless platform designed by BCE has the ability to manage studio news productions and videos faster than realtime, using a combination of servers, nonlinear editing suites and management software.
BCE installed two main studios, each with a dedicated control room. The first studio is focusing on News & Sports production and also morning shows. The second studio is dedicated to bigger productions such as weekly TV shows.
Tun Van Rijswijck, chief operating officer, said: “BCE’s main objective is to create a turnkey solution allowing NOVA TV’s staff to work faster and more cost-effectively.”
Pavel Stanchev, general manager of NOVA TV commented: “The new digital working environment will allow us to deliver a substantially improved news and entertainment content to our millions of viewers.”
