TV Globo and wTVision become strategic partners and worked in close partnership to create and operate the International Channels of the largest and most famous Brazilian TV Network.
Until now, TV Globo only had single channel for all of Europe and Africa (Portugal is the exception with 4 hours local content per day). From now on European and African TV viewers will have their own channel with specific content and schedules for each market.
The operation service is provided by a wTVision team and the management of the channels is made 24/7.
This service includes the recording of the transmissions, playlist importation, defined by TV Globo, preparation and content ingest, and creation of playlists for each channel.
These channels broadcast not only recorded programs, but also live news broadcasts, football games and several other shows, with only a small delay.
All the project development and installation was full responsibility of wTVision, which used its ChannelMaker to make possible and simple all the playout automation. ChannelMaker integrates and manages the network elements (video servers, video routers, etc.) and centralizes the ingest functions, programs playlist, video and graphics automation and playout.
