Mexico’s Televisa completes SAM upgrade15 September 2017
Mexico-based broadcaster Televisa has updated its Snell Advanced Media Vibe news production system, investing in a range of review, rough cut edit and full production editing seats. Also included were several licences for SAM’s Go! remote timeline video editor.
The broadcaster integrated its new Vibe servers to support DVCPro 100 as well as AVCi 50 and AVCi 100 formats without interrupting its current programming schedule.
“As a major broadcaster with millions of viewers, we’re constantly striving to deliver top-quality news, sports and entertainment, which means it’s imperative that we have the proper architecture and workflow efficiencies in place to meet our objectives,” said Elias Rodriguez Perales, Televisa’s general director of technology and operations.
“We are trying to push the boundaries of what is possible in live and quick-turnaround production in terms of new workflows. For us, SAM was the obvious choice.”
In a statement, Hector Sanchez, regional director of LATAM at SAM, added: “We’re very happy to continue our long-standing relationship with Televisa, expanding on a six-year-old system to preserve its infrastructure.”
