​Gibraltar Broadcasting Builds News Workflow With VSN

Public broadcasting corporation Gibraltar Broadcasting Corporation (GBC), has partnered with VSN to update all its news production systems and make a full transition to a digitized newsroom.

VSN upgraded GBC’s Media Asset Management solution (VSNExplorer MAM) and developed integration with other workflow partners.

One of the partner-adopted solutions was the Ross Inception NRCS solution to replace older scripting methods. Within Inception, GBC uses the MOS protocol to integrate the Autoscript prompting system also opening the door for additional editing workflows and the creation and broadcast of graphics on the Ross Xpression system.

The VSNLivecome studio playout will allow GBC to control eight channels from two DVS Venice servers (installed in a redundant configuration) and trigger graphics to air from within the gallery.

Michael Corcoran, GBC’s Chief Engineering and Technology Officer says: “At a time of unprecedented change in the broadcast industry, GBC needed time to restructure key staffing positions, before moving forward with the next stage in newsroom and production workflow modernisation. Our roadmap is extensive, looking at storage modelling, NLE media management, a change in the newsroom NLE, a migration to better network authentication strategies, more and more MAM integration and finally, modern efficient workflows for studio and gallery productions with VSN.”
