VIVA Indonesia broadcasts World Cup with Cinegy

Based in Jakarta Indonesia, VIVA Media Group is a media investment holding company that owns free-to-air television channels TVOne and ANTV and online news portal Vivanews. Last month VIVA finalised its Cinegy installation in order to produce and broadcast the FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 to its viewers in Indonesia.

“As a DTH operator we were looking for a playout solution for eight channels, which required simultaneous SD and HD playout from one playlist. In the bidding process we sent invitations to six vendors and only Cinegy matched all our requirements,” said Priyono B Soepanto, Vice President of Technologies.

Prior to installing Cinegy VIVA faced many challenges with its production workflow, which needed to be streamlined into one solution. In addition to installing Cinegy Air for playout requirements, VIVA are also to install an entire collaborative workflow based on Cinegy to cover their MAM, editing, workflow and archiving requirements.

“Having an end to end solution base from one vendor will be a massive benefit to us. From ingest to playout and IP-based – we can be assured that our collaborative, nonlinear solution is future proof,” said Soepanto.
