Radio Television Suisse optimises broadcast resources with Orad render platform
Radio Television Suisse (RTS) has chosen Orad to centralise control of its video walls and external broadcast devices. Thanks to the Orad HDVG4 video rendering platform and Maestro solution, RTS can synchronise graphic distribution across its large video walls. Collectively, the walls behave as a single entity, enabling graphic elements to display across all video walls . In addition, the Orad installation allows RTS to control external devices.
Using Orad’s Maestro controller and HDVG4 video rendering platform, RTS is able to manage its very high-resolution video wall displays, which are composed of three independent Barco walls plus one big plasma screen for standup inside the studio. All surfaces are fed by a single HDVG4, enabling them to run the graphics on the video walls.
“Only Orad was able to provide us with the ability to control all of our third-party devices via an easy-to-use controller, supplying us with an efficient and effective workflow. All third-party device presets can be set in the NCRS, including camera positions, and gathered by Maestro using MOS communication, while video wall graphics are triggered by Orad’s Smart-Shot,” said RTS project manager Etienne Favereau.
With the communication between the Orad Maestro and 3DPlay controllers, RTS is able to better manage Snell routers, Sony mixers, Harris (Imagine) character generators, lighting desks, Ross robotic cameras, and other third-party devices that would otherwise not communicate with each other. From the user standpoint, presets are triggered by the Orad Smart-Shot shotbox.
“By combining the power of our HDVG4 rendering platform with our Smart-Shot shotbox and Maestro graphics suite, RTS can easily control the graphics display and external devices, and fully benefit from its large video wall display, while simplifying their workflow,” said Avi Sharir, CEO and president, Orad.
