​VSN Promotes Workflows For News

An add-on for the VSNExplorer platform for media and workflow management, a cloud-based media exchange solution and a new traffic and scheduling system from VSN.

An add-on for the VSNExplorer platform for media and workflow management, the VSNExplorer Plugin for Newsroom allows broadcast and media companies to interconnect leading NRCS, CG, NLE, studio playout systems and video servers, among others, within a single centralized workspace for news production.

In essence, the module is a MOS Web Plugin developed in HTML5 that allows companies to choose the systems that suit their needs and then interconnect all of them through this plugin.

VSN Media Exchange is described as a content hub in the cloud. It can also be hosted on-premise.

The Media Exchange solution is capable of being adapted to the specific requirements of almost any organization or application. It is, for example, possible to create content subscriptions for individual media entities that will automate file movement and optimize file transfers according to the entity’s subscription profile. Dashboards and reports enable an analysis of each entity’s activity, while content forecasts also enable organizations to plan in advance the production of concrete content pieces.

“Our Media Exchange solution has already been widely implemented by customers,” said Aaron López, the company COO. “They can now eliminate their dependence on manual tasks, and completely automate and centralize all their communications and management workflows in a much more efficient and flexible way.”

Also at NAB, the company will showcase VSNCrea traffic and scheduling system, that enables the management of a company’s content production catalog. It’s HTML5-based and is available as cloud-based, hosted on-premise or via a SaaS model. It is compatible with a broad range of MCR automation systems and EPG standards, and is both multi-language and multi-regional. Additionally, VSNCrea is a multi-tenant system, meaning that a single instance of the software can serve multiple clients or organizations, allowing for greater saving of costs.

“Professionals working for TV companies, radio stations or web platforms value efficiency and flexibility when scheduling their programming - and that’s what VSNCrea delivers,” said Oriol Egea, VSN development manager. “It allows them to organize and control their channel’s programming at any time, from anywhere. From general simulations for the whole season to programming and scheduling for a specific day or week, it is highly adaptable to a range of use cases.”

This first version of the system will continue to evolve through 2019 and is expected to include new features such as integration with software for billing before the end of the year.

“Visitors to our NAB stand will see a range of solutions unified by common themes – interoperability, seamless workflows, intuitive ease of use, flexibility and increased efficiency,” said Patricia Corral, the company's marketing director.
