wTVision, Unitecnic collaborate on playout automation workflow
Working for Imagina US, wTVision and Unitecnic have provided an end-to-end solution for two new DirecTV Latin America TV Channels, OnDirecTV HD – Showcase and OnDirecTV SD – 999. wTVision customized its modular product ChannelMaker to integrate with several other broadcast technologies – the main objective being to deliver a new architectural structure of two channels, one in SD and one in HD.
The structure of this project included the ChannelMaker’s integration with a Grass Valley video server, a Miranda Imagestore Master Control Mixer, a Snell Cygnus Video Router and a ForeTV Traffic System. The architecture includes redundancy of the ChannelMaker Playout for both SD and HD channels.
ChannelMaker is able to manage complex channel architectures ranging from simple main/backup configurations to multi-channel, multi-station, multi-vendor and multi-location solutions.
