The Spanish company Video Stream Networks (VSN) announced that Mexican Grupo Radio Centro has opted to implement an end-to-end solution entirely composed of VSN’s systems to consolidate its production environment and forkflows for content planning and broadcasting. The aim of this installation, in which VSN took part through the main system integrator of the project, Teletec (Mexico), was to allow the media group to launch its new TV channel, known as La Octava.
The project is based on the VSNExplorer platform and, more specifically, on its Production Asset Management (PAM) module, in order to manage and organize the entire production work environment. In addition, the new TV network also acquired 20 licenses of VSNExplorer’s web video editor, Wedit, which has become a crucial part of the whole installation. In essence, this web editor allows journalists and editors to easily locate and quickly edit a video segment within the VSNExplorer interface, just by dragging and dropping content to the timeline, as well as to send their news pieces to broadcast as soon as possible.
The solution also includes the VSNOne TV Channel-in-a-box system as main playout and studio playout for content broadcasting. Furthermore, the solution comprises VSN’s new HTML5 traffic and scheduling system, VSNCrea. In fact, with the inclusion of VSNCrea in the project, La Octava has become the second Mexican TV channel of recent creation that has relied on this system to schedule and plan all its programming and advertising.
The whole project was completed with licenses of the non-linear editor Adobe Premiere, integrated with the VSNExplorer platform. This way, the solution allows users to download the EDLs to export sequences and make advance video editings in the NLE, and subsequently, include the final result back into the MAM system for its archiving or distribution.
‘For us it is an absolute pride to have been selected by Grupo Radio Centro for the launch of La Octava TV channel. Thanks to this project and our portfolio of End-to-End solutions, fully scalable and adaptable for the needs of our customers, our expansion and footprint keep growing in Mexico’, says Alfonso Vazquez, Sales Manager of Latin American market at VSN.
