Swiss channel La Télé has installed 24 x 49” Philips X-Line Videowalls paired with three 86” Q-Line displays in two of its studios.
All of the screens can be managed automatically or manually via a custom control system to display newsfeeds, branded set scenery, gameshow questions, and other unique elements without the need of an extra person in the control room.
Each display can be driven independently by custom software, driven by the Newsroom Computer System (NRCS). A turnkey design approach was led by the studio’s internal team to cover both current and future needs of the station.
The CMND system allows the calibration of the screens. Content updates from a central point are managed by a dedicated software created on an open source Caspar CG platform.
Davide Longo, sales manager for Philips Professional Display Solutions in Switzerland, said: “We’re delighted to have been able to support La Télé in this both exciting and challenging project, providing a truly transformational solution across its two busy TV studios. It’s another example of how far PPDS has come over a relatively short period, with our displays increasingly becoming the brand of choice for many of Europe’s leading integration specialists and end-users alike for projects like this that demand quality and reliability.”
François Vittoz, IT director, La Télé, added: “Our Philips displays enabled us to have two truly versatile studios capable of instant visual transformations in the most efficient way possible.”
