Telefónica Upgrades RTVE’s MAM From Tedial Tarsys To Tedial Evolution

Spain’s national broadcaster will migrate its back archive to new Tedial Evolution MAM and will benefit from a fully automated MAM workflow

Telefónica has announced that Spain’s national broadcaster Radio y Televisión Española (RTVE) has renewed its MAM technology contract with Tedial.

RTVE is currently immersed in a leading digital transformation process, which includes multiple technology advancement projects within its headquarters, that will allow it to adapt to present and future technology evolutions. Within this digital strategy is the renovation project of the broadcaster’s historical archive, which will allow greater synergy between its systems and digital workflows, enabling it to adapt to changing requirements years after implementation of the original project.

The upgrade will allow RTVE to migrate its archive to the new platform, to automate its entire MAM workflow from ingest to distribution and to have more advanced integrations with third-party systems. Telefónica, is again main contractor of the overhaul project and is in charge of the hardware platform upgrade, the integration and the engineering project that will allow RTVE a smooth transition to the new platform.

RTVE installed Tedial’s Tarsys MAM in 2011 when it began one of the most ambitious digitization projects in the broadcast sector, and certainly the largest in the Spanish speaking world, carried out by its technological partner Telefonica.

The broadcaster’s aim was to digitize its entire archive “Fondos Documentales” (based on videotapes as U-matic, 1-Inch, and cinema formats as Open Reel), which spanned more than 50 years dating back to the beginning of Spanish television transmission.

The upgrade provides new virtualized servers and a storage infrastructure, that allows it to automatically review workflows to improve system and operational efficiency.

The archive will be integrated with all areas of production enabling RTVE operators to archive all content from any point in the production chain to Tedial Evolution and to restore content from the historical archive. The upgrade also means that RTVE now has a centralized system that can manage content from all three of its sites in Torrespaña, Prado & Barcelona from one central site (Prado) with disaster recovery situated in Barcelona.
