Star Sports India enlists wTVision for graphics outsourcing
Star Sports, the largest Indian sports broadcaster, has selected wTVision’s services for its new studio in Mumbai. The services include the deployment of all the resources needed to cater to the graphics required for live studio productions. These resources include: hardware, software, human resources and consulting services.
wTVision has now become a major graphics manpower outsourcing player in the industry and in this project has deployed three bi-lingual (Hindi and English) operators. These operators manage the entire workflow of on-air graphics in live studio programmes, ensuring a flawless graphics coverage.
The operators use wTVision’s Studio CG, a cross-platform character generator workflow to manage and control graphics, in real-time, by controlling two Vizrt graphic engines. The graphics templates are created by the client on Vizrt’s design tool and integrated using Studio CG.
In order to provide an integrated workflow, Studio CG is integrated with a newsroom system (ENPS) through a MOS Gateway. This integration allows journalists to choose from the programme’s existing graphic templates and to edit its content directly. These edited ‘pages’ will be instantly available for playout on Studio CG via the wTVision MOS Gateway.
The company also developed an application to manage Twitter posts that moderates the messages and guarantees that only the right tweets go on-air.
