Daystar Upgrades To More Than HD
Daystar Television upgrades systems and facilities for future growth with Imagine Communications.
Dallas area based Daystar Television Network, the award-winning, faith-based global network, selected Imagine Communications to upgrade its operations from SD to HD with a complete, end-to-end broadcast workflow solution. The traffic and billing system implementation was in September 2014. Daystar’s HD channels went live the next month.
The implementation covers production, master control and play-to-air operations. It also replaces an existing traffic and billing system with a more efficient, centralized international solution for Daystar’s cable networks and 100 television properties that reach more than 700 million households in 200 countries.
The deployment includes video infrastructure solutions migrating Daystar’s production operations from SD to HD, including routing and control solutions that manage the acquisition and distribution of multiple camera feeds. Imagine Communications also deployed a master control channel playout solution using highly-scalable software that helps speed channel deployment time and enable future growth. The deployment also includes an array of media software applications and facility signal processing solutions.
Imagine Communications’ LandmarkOSI media software replaces the existing traffic and billing system that required Daystar to schedule programming for its network affiliates independently of each other. The LandmarkOSI installation surpasses Daystar’s previous system with centralized program scheduling, which helps optimize content usage and maximize revenue, and supports the Canadian ratings system as required by Daystar’s Canadian channel. The expanded footprint also allows Daystar to link automation with traffic and billing functions through the Live-Update live log editor, which enables automated scheduling and up-to-the minute ad placement and schedule changes.
