Golf Channel Latin America is now using wTVision’s ChannelMaker as its playout software, one of the most flexible solutions in the market, that fully adapts to each broadcaster’s specifications.
The new channel, the only one in Spanish with 24/7 golf coverage, began to broadcast from the Imagina US HG in Miami on April 2 and is being aired thanks to a partnership between Imagina US, Unitecnic and wTVision.
Operating from Imagina US’s Playout Center, ChannelMaker had to overcome the natural obstacles of every Golf competition, especially the unpredictability of every commercial break and the flexibility required for such a complex live operation. Thanks to the software’s ease of customization and adaptability, the new channel is fully prepared to cover more than 100 tournaments every year, all around the world.
ChannelMaker controls a third-party video server, video matrix and branding processor by Grass Valley, as well as a traffic controller by Phoenix 7.
wTVision’s ChannelMaker is now responsible for the playout of 18 channels in Imagina US Playout Center, including beIN Sports, Hola TV, DirecTV Latam and Golf Channel Latin America, among others. The software is ready to continue expanding its range of integrated broadcast solutions.
