RTV Slovenia gets new archiving infusion from NOA
Slovenia’s national broadcaster Radiotelevizija Slovenija (RTV Slovenia) has augmented its content archiving capability with the installation of new systems from NOA. Extending its existing archiving operation based on NOA’s mediARC, RTV Slovenia has added two dual-channel NOA Framelector systems, a VidCheck VideoFileAnalyser, and MediaButler for Video.
The additional ingest capability based upon NOA´s Framelector systems will allow the broadcaster to accelerate its digitisation of content stored on 80,000 betacam tapes. The new installation also gives RTV Slovenia extra quality control workflows, and the ability to build workflows for the supply of production copies in a range of resolutions from the lossless archive.
“QC of analogue video transfers with ISR and RF read-outs, complete content analysis of ingested SD material, and mathematically lossless open source formats based upon FFv1 – all this makes NOA the first choice for us,” said for Martin Zvelc, head of RTV Slovenia’s mediaTeka. “Our enormous legacy of video material can now be safely and rapidly preserved in the archive at the highest quality, and re-transcoded in the future for use in any kind of new production system.”
NOA´s new video ingest system FrameLector is the first to be deployed in the region and has a dual channel capability to transfer SD material at highest quality with perfect quality control at comparably low cost. Besides NOA’s mediARC has gained a strong base of users in both broadcasting and institutional archiving, and the system’s ability to meet the needs of archivists and production teams is especially useful when the two roles are required within the same organisation.
“After lengthy successful experience with mediARC, RTV Slovenia has shown its confidence in our technology by adding the video ingest enhancements that will enable them to increase their archiving work rate and make also archived video material available for use in new ways,” said Christophe Kummer, CEO of NOA.
