The Challenge
The challenge for Scene Network was to install an efficient and easy to manage playout automation system that would allow their operators to control the whole process of broadcasting. They started this innovative business model less than a year ago and Vector 3's team is very proud of having helped them with their launch.

Besides offering a rich entertainment, design and fashion TV schedule, Scene Network also offers in demand content that is revolutionizing television consumption to the new generations. As a brand new television, Scene Network wanted to get the latest technology in broadcasting. So, Vector 3 offered them the most advanced playout automation solution in HD 1080p 30fs with the graphics being created in real time..

 

The Solution

VectorBox8000HD is the perfect solution that Scene Network decided to install because it offers a compact solution for HD with the automatic upscaling and downscaling from SD to HD.

Since Scene Network always uses the same playlist, they just modify it daily using Playlist Publisher and use VGA trimmer to select the clips they air from bigger file sources. Besides, VectorBox controls the insertion of syndicated files in a very efficient way. When it receives a pulse, VectorBox automatically inserts the clips wherever you programmed it in the playlist. Finally, they also use the VectorBox to insert logo graphics and transitions.

A switcher AJA KUMO 1616 with 16x16 is controlled by the VectorBox. The ingest of the files is managed by Media Manager. In the same facilities these files are ingested, copied to a 2TB Buffalo Terastation NAS and prepared to go live according to the playlist. Media Manager Monitor allows operators to supervise the whole process in a very intuitive way.
