IBC Content Management Category prize for media asset management specialist IPV
Together with its customer, Ontario-based Groupe Média TFO (TFO), IPV won second prize within the Content Management Category of this year’s IBC Innovation Awards. Simultaneously, IPV announced that it has been selected by UK-based broadcast systems integrator, dB Broadcast, to supply MAM systems to be used within a state-of-the-art production and transmission facility for the Services Sound and Vision Corporation (SSVC), suppliers of the British Forces Broadcasting Service (BFBS) to the UK’s armed forces.
The new facility will be equipped with highly flexible and workflow efficient solutions capable of handling current and foreseeable future TV broadcast requirements.
The solution is a complete turnkey system, spanning both traditional broadcast technologies and network infrastructure. dB Broadcast selected an ingest solution from Arbor Media; Traffic system from Provys; a MAM system from IPV to manage the workflows and media; Playout from Snell; a broadcast infrastructure based on industry standard products from Snell, Axon and Imagine Communications (previously Harris), new network infrastructure based on Cisco hardware with NetApp storage, and a Control and Monitoring system utilising a combination of Axon Cerebrum and Nagios XI.
Nigel Booth, executive VP sales and marketing at IPV, comments: “dB Broadcast has designed and integrated a multi-vendor workflow infrastructure comprising a broad range of best-in-class products and systems, which altogether will satisfy the needs of the British Services Broadcast Service now and for a long time into the future. We are delighted to be providing one of the key elements in this future-focused broadcast system.”
