Arkena

Challenge
Install an on-air graphics engine for six TV stations.

Anyware solution

We deployed our CastGenie solution to manage on-air graphics in the Arkena control room. We were able to adapt it to the legacy equipment, notably the custom's traffic system and automation. We use a Watch folder to directly recover playlists that we integrate in the on-air graphics system and which we reconcile with their automation system.
 
We used CastEdit to design graphic scenarios based on the customer's image files and animations, and complying with their graphic guidelines. The scenarios have proven highly successful. Very drastic security is required since the equipment is at the end of the production line. In order to meet these requirements, each CastGenie is fitted with a mechanical bypass on the Matrox XMIO2 capture/broadcast card, in additional to a RAID 5 disk array and a redundant power supply.

Promise kept

“The smooth operation of this site and its production rollout persuaded us to offer Anyware Video systems to most of our new leads. Despite a very tight deadline, the project was completed on schedule with top-quality services both before and after going online. We are able to increasingly meet our customers' needs thanks to the frequent enhancements available through our maintenance contract. We are very satisfied with the solution. ”
