RTCG Montenegro tapeless with EVS

8 October 2009

Radio Televizija Crne Gore (RTCG), the Montenegrin public broadcaster, has selected the new XEDIO modular production suite from EVS for tapeless production.

The digitisation project was managed by the AVC Group. The aim of this project was to implement a fully integrated production workflow based on 100% tapeless technology that offers instant control of media across the entire network. By selecting XEDIO, RTCG chose to facilitate its production, allowing a number of resources across several platforms (ENG file-based camcorders, servers, databases, archives) to be available from a single interface.

Due to its multi-format encoding platform — the XEDIO encoder combined with EVS’ XStore[2] SAN architecture — the incoming content is instantly available for the whole production chain in hi and lo-res for edit and playout.

The XEDIO suite is also optimised for third-party integration, allowing the exchange of media with Final Cut Pro editors, as well as media backup and restore to and from the DIVArchive content storage management system from Front Porch. In addition, the CleanEdit nonlinear editor, which is part of the XEDIO suite, gives journalists the possibility to create their news with a single interface from which they can browse media for editing.

XEDIO CleanEdit is an editing platform that offers efficient transition and video effects capabilities, such as mixes, wipes, animated transitions, voice-overs, and graphic overlays. All editing actions are virtual and non-destructive with no action on stored media enabling a useful “Undo” function or instant preview without any rendering.

AVC Group Sales Manager Dragan Vuletić said, “After working with EVS technology on previous projects, such as BHTV in Bosnia, we are confident that this tapeless technology can easily be integrated with third-party systems and meet the requirements of our customers in terms of reliability and speed.”
