Swiss workflow project showcased10 September 2016
TPC, the broadcast services arm of Swiss broadcaster Schweizer Radio und Fernsehen (SRF), has updated its workflow and production process with the installation of a new set-up called Media Explorer.
Media Explorer is based on a combination of the Sony Media Backbone Conductor (MBC) and the VPMS media asset management system from Arvato Systems.
The systems architect and IBC exhibitor Qvest Media developed the software design and the integration of Media Explorer, in co-operation with Arvato Systems and Sony.
At its centre is a service-oriented architecture in the form of an enterprise service bus that connects the VPMS and the MBC.
Christian Lenz, head of business consulting at Qvest Media, said: “Administering, simplifying, optimising and automating workflows and ensuring their transparency continues to be a central task of data management.
We know all about the investment required in terms of time, money and training that integrating new hardware and software systems involves for our customers.
“This is why we have created a solution in the form of the Media Explorer that reduces these transactions and at the same time hugely increases the flexibility of continuous technological renewal and maintenance of infrastructure.”
Qvest Media and TPC representatives are discussing the new set-up during IBC.
A 14-month long project that saw Qvest Media help German public broadcaster Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg (RBB) move to file-based production is also being showcased.
