Russia’s TV Zvezda Deploys Rascular’s Control Technology

Rascular’s PC-based multi-device master control technology–Helm, Mediant and Timebase – have been deployed by Russian broadcaster TV Zvezda to enable dynamic cross-channel promotion.

The installed system includes 12 channels of Rascular's Mediant, Helm and Timebase systems. The result is that Zvezda has created a channel promotion workflow providing a high level of both automation and manual control. Channel promotion graphics – templates that can be used repeatedly – are created using Adobe tools. Those assets are then moved to the Miranda IS750 character generator using the Mediant media management tool.

In order to populate the data field within those templates, Timebase is fed by the ADC1000 automation system, taking the schedule data to automatically populate the now/next/later graphics. This means the same template – or series of templates - can be reused as often as the broadcaster wishes. Helm provides complete manual control of the branding devices as and when required, all from a user-defined, PC-based GUI.
