The MCR playout system settled for InterTV has ChannelMaker at the heart of the automation workflow. wTVision provided 6 ChannelMaker systems for the main playout operations along with 6 backup systems, to guarantee a flawless broadcast at all times.
Supporting ChannelMaker in its automation tasks, we find an extensive list of wTVision’s products such as R³ Space Engine, our real-time 3D graphics render engine, or Media Tools, a powerful ingest and trimming solution that enriches the channel’s video workflow.
wTVision also provided InterTV with its own Media Server, making it easy to build playout automation and ChannelMaker’s operations.
To keep track of all media available across the network, and making sure it reaches the intended destination, ChannelMaker integrates with MAM. Our Media Management tool adds power to any production with a fully automated and streamlined operation.
In InterTV’s case, wTVision’s Media Manager is particularly important, once it is integrated with the network’s OPEC system. With this setup, InterTV can analyse ads rundowns in real-time, identify competition collisions and find the right fit in a fully automated environment. This allows InterTV to generate more revenue, reduce costs and create a more efficient space for advertisers.
Additionally, operators and specialists responsible for monitoring and controlling InterTV’s playout were trained by our team that guarantees constant technical support.
“The Engineering Department of InterTV had the challenge of implementing a new model of Centralcast, integrating 5 channels, a backup channel, and make room for future expansions. The premises were to use already established hardware, robust and totally redundant technology, in addition to finding automation that adapts to this hardware, without losing resources .We found in wTVision the partnership we were looking for to provide the automation solution, develop and customize resources according to the needs identified by the operators themselves and implement the system, even with the challenges imposed by the pandemic. The system has been on the air for almost a year and continues to improve continuously.” – Sérgio Mansano , InterTV’s Engineering Director.
For the first time in wTVision’s time in Brazil, our playout system is responsible for broadcasts in 5 different networks spread across 3 different states (Rio de Janeiro, Minas Gerais, and Rio Grande do Norte), under a Central Cast model.
This complex operation designed by wTVision, in a partnership with InterTV, guarantees the operational efficiency the channel was looking for. Thanks to this new playout automation model, the network was able to centralize operations, have greater control over the content and become more efficient in its costs.
