News24 chooses VSN newscast solution2 January 2014
Albania’s 24-hour television channel News24 has selected VSN technology for its news production and digital archive, for the channel’s transition to full HD.
VSN’s news solution integrates the layers of text, video, audio and graphics within a single interface. With the solution, News24 aims to improve its workflow by creating a unified newsroom and studio, automating all tasks and increasing ease of use and flexibility for journalists.
Both journalists and editors share files located in the production storage through the MAM solution VSNEXPLORER that interfaces VSNNEWS. This makes it easier to locate any type of content in addition to partially recovering it from the LTO robotic library.
Intake of live video feeds coming from the studio and the news agencies is managed automatically by VSNAUTOREC over the six SDI ingest channels available, the router control and scheduling. The footage from the ENG cameras is directly imported to the MAM in XDCAM EX HD and HD 422. The production storage is a NAS connected over 10Gbps with a capacity of 1800 hours in HD and the deep archive provides an additional 3600 hours in the LTO library.
The installation and commissioning was carried out by the Greek system integrator Ariston BTS.
