Radio Television Suisse selects Orad solutions3 October 2014
Radio Television Suisse (RTS) has chosen Orad to centralise control of its video walls and external broadcast devices. Using Orad HDVG4 video rendering platform and Maestro solution, RTS can synchronise graphics distribution across its large video walls.
RTS is able to manage its high-resolution video wall displays, composed of three independent Barco walls plus one big plasma screen for standup inside the studio. All surfaces are fed by a single HDVG4.
“Only Orad was able to provide us with the ability to control all of our third-party devices via an easy-to-use controller, supplying us with an efficient and effective workflow,” commented RTS project manager Etienne Favereau. “All third-party device presets can be set in the NCRS, including camera positions, and gathered by Maestro using MOS communication, while video wall graphics are triggered by Orad’s Smart-Shot.”
With the communication between the Orad Maestro and 3DPlay controllers, RTS can manage Snell routers, Sony mixers, Harris character generators, lighting desks, Ross robotic cameras, and other third-party devices.
Avi Sharir, CEO and president, Orad, explained: “By combining the power of our HDVG4 rendering platform with our Smart-Shot shotbox and Maestro graphics suite, RTS can easily control the graphics display and external devices, and fully benefit from its large video wall display, while simplifying their workflow.”
