While demonstrating its Integrated Workflows at IBC 2018, wTVision took the opportunity to present VVTR, an intuitive digital product designed to replace a regular profissional broadcast VTR and modernize any broadcast workflow.
Inspired in the VTR’s reliability, this new tool acesses previously recorded clips from an integrated clip library and records baseband video with up to 16 audio channels. In addition, it is possible to choose a house codec and file format, and preview inputs / outputs directly on the multiviewer’ interface.
VVTR can be used as a manual redundancy for playout automation, assuring the continuity of the content as a backup tool. It replaces the tradicional VTR and allows any operator to have a manual redundant path to playout and keep ads ready to play in case of an automation failure. Even if the entire workflow collapses, VVTR is a simple tool with no need for any complementary system to ensure manual redundancy and continuous playout of any channel.
To guarantee Media Transfers do not fail, wTVision designed a Multi FTP Downloader as a companion app for VVTR. It caches the contents of multiple FTP servers and facilitates media discovery and the easy retrieval of files from multiple destinations into existing automation locations.
VVTR is a self contained system. Clips can be recorded and played back in a variety of codecs and file formats, namely XDCAM 50 or IMX30 in MXF files. VVTR records closed captions in WST/ OP-47, 608 and 708.
