Gold Sponsor Provys joins ITBW with Chello Zone’s Andreea Buga

Provys, a division of DCIT, has come onboard as a Gold Sponsor of TVBEurope’s IT Broadcast Workflow conference. Daniel Stourac, Key Account manager at Provys, will introduce a customer case study titled ‘Leaving the horror but keeping the reality in Chello Zone operations’ by speaker Andreea Buga (pictured), vice president Operations, Chello Zone. Chello Zone is a leading international broadcaster and distributor of thematic television channels across Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia. With drama, factual, sports, movies, children’s and lifestyle television, its channels offer something for everyone. The consolidated and joint venture channels reach audiences in more than 160 million homes across over 100 countries and in 25 languages. The Chello Zone Operations team runs 27 feeds in 25 languages from five outsourced playout centres. It has the challenge of processing and languaging up to 8,000 hours of new content every year in HD and SD from over 400 content suppliers. Chello Zone is a business unit of Chellomedia, the European content division of Liberty Global. Buga will discuss the experience of rationalising its outsourced content, repurposing workflows and bringing this in-house. As a consequence, the traffic and management of post production processing and languaging of 8,000 premier hours was migrated from ad hoc manual systems into the Provys rights management and scheduling system. TVBEurope’s unique IT Broadcast Workflow event is dedicated to putting the facts before an audience of broadcast decision makers. Register now to attend this year’s ITBW conference at BAFTA.
