Qvest Media Integrates Blick TV Digital Channel

Qvest Media has performed technical planning and systems integration for digital news channel Blick TV.

This takes Swiss media company Ringier’s daily newspaper BLICK into digital broadcasting and expands reach of its news service. Blick TV now relies on digital and online channels for its program distribution.

Two new Blick TV studios are connected to a streaming platform for automated production. This required more efficient workflow, combining newsroom, MAM, studio automation and playout in a single software package. This enables aggregation, curation, and editing of video content from several Ringier media departments, its connected digital archive, and other news agencies‘ media.

Furthermore, recordings of live shows are added to the automated processes of the automation and playout server. This provides a flow of live news, readymade clips and reruns of live shows that can be planned at short notice. There is also the ability to integrate live subtitling beyond the standard lines of TV. For Blick TV, this could allow distribution of live content to out-of-home media with the subtitling.

Blick TV launched its program on February 17, 2020. Since then, the channel has been streaming live reports, breaking news, current social topics and live shows on a daily basis between 6 a.m. and 11 p.m. The video stream can be accessed from mobile devices via the BLICK App, on social networks and online on Blick.ch.
