Belgian public broadcaster VRT has selected the LiveOS software platform from NetOn.Live as part of its build-out for a new software-based studio project.
The LiveOS solution moves functionalities traditionally found in dedicated hardware devices to software modules, that run on generic IT servers. It offers an easy-to-use, web-based environment for production teams of any size.
“We’re eager to start the collaboration with NetOn.Live in this strategic, forward-looking project,” said Stijn Lehaen, technology director at VRT. “Throughout the tendering procedure and the ensuing PoC, they’ve shown that LiveOS is a mature platform that offers the flexibility and shareability we’re looking for, while maintaining the lowest latencies and highest, uncompressed video quality.”
“LiveOS is a truly transformative platform that can enable local, remote, and decentralised live media production,” added Michel De Wolf, founder and CEO of NetOn.Live. “We believe that moving away from broadcast-specific hardware to unified IT equipment and software will change the face of broadcasting for the better.”
