Swiss TV network TSR chooses VEDA™ for its new playout automation system
Champs sur Marne, France, February 1, 2010
SGT, a leading global software vendor in the broadcast and media industry, in cooperation with BFE, announced that the Swiss TV network TSR (Télévision Suisse Romande) has chosen the VEDA platform for its new playout automation system. The project called “CDD2010” will be set up by BFE with the objective to overhaul TSR´s broadcast center (Centre De Diffusion) in Geneva. The playout automation system will be installed for the two Premium channels, TSR1 and TSR2, and as of 2011 for thematic IP channels. The final system is expected to be on air during the second half of 2010.
The requirements for the new playout system were as follows:
- Completely digitized system, enabling an interaction with the existing media management system GICO
- Ensure a strong interaction with the traffic system STRADA developed in-house by TSR
- Support HD playout formats and multi-channel sound
- Enable content sharing and availability
- Ensure high-security playout
- Increase flexibility and reactivity of the system
“The modernization of our broadcast center represents a strategic challenge that requires powerful and robust tools to accompany TSR in its future development,” said Blaise Guignard, Project manager at TSR. “After an in-depth market study, we have selected the VEDA solution from SGT, and BFE as our systems integration partner. The innovative features, the quality of the graphical interface, but also the adaptability of the system made the difference compared to other vendors.”
“TSR is a highly strategic project for SGT. It will allow us to demonstrate the advanced features of our VEDA offering. In addition, it will help us to accelerate our international growth and to develop new partnerships,” said François Chiche, Vice President Sales and Marketing at SGT. “The combination of our powerful VEDA suite and the professionalism of our integration partner BFE are key ingredients for the success of the solution.”
A reliable, secure and user-friendly solution
In order to ensure maximum systems availability, SGT and BFE will build a playout solution based on an active/active security cluster. The two VEDA Automation servers broadcast the same playlist and are synchronized. The VEDA Automation client complements the flexible and powerful VEDA platform to manage workflows and impresses with its ergonomics and its overall presentation – a key point for TSR in the final choice of the VEDA solution. The application can be organized to meet specific client needs and allows the workspace to be tailored through a graphical tool.
Perfect integration in TSR´s existing IT-broadcast environment
VEDA will integrate seamlessly into the IT broadcast environment at TSR, interfacing with all existing and to-be-deployed systems, and thus guaranteeing high flexibility and continuous operation. Through BXF services for example, VEDA will interface with the STRADA traffic system that programs the Premium channels. VEDA will also communicate with the existing media management system GICO that takes over the digitalization and archiving.
Furthermore, TSR puts a special emphasis on high-quality audio and dynamic branding: in an environment that – among other equipment – will be composed of the Nexio playout server from Harris, the Imagestore IS750 Master Control Switcher from Miranda, the Nexus audio router from Stagetec and the C8000 series audio processing components from Jünger, VEDA Automation allows working audio live from the source to respond to TSR´s requirements in terms of high-quality sound in 5.1 Discrete, Dolby E and PCM stereo. In addition, dynamic branding equipment is needed. In the case of the TSR implementation, SGT´s solution will integrate with Iconstation from Harris to ensure an excellent dynamic branding.
With 20 years of experience in broadcasting, SGT is a leading global software vendor providing innovative solutions for the broadcast and media industries. More than 300 TV channels worldwide use SGT’s award-winning software suite, VEDA, such as Arte, BeTV (Belgium), Canal +, EPTV (Algeria), Eurosport, France Télévisions, M6, ProfMedia (Russia), RTK (Russia), RTL, SBS (Netherlands), SWR (Germany), TF1, TQS (Canada), TV5 Monde. The solution based on a service-oriented architecture (SOA) features high flexibility and modularity offering seamless integration into each client’s environment.

Il est intéressant en tous cas. Mais il y a une petite phrase qui a titillé ma curiosité
"The playout automation system will be installed for the two Premium channels, TSR1 and TSR2, and as of 2011 for thematic IP channels."
Ils disent que le système va gérer une chaine thématique sur internet à partir de 2011. De quoi s'agit-il ? De tsrinfo ou d'un nouveau projet ?

Effectivement, de ce que je me souviens de la concession, la TSR, la SF et la RSI ont chacune droit à une chaine diffusée sur internet sauf erreur. En soit, je ne comprend pas trop cette limitation sachant que ces chaines ne diffusent pas de publicité. Pour protéger la presse écrite ? Mais à ma connaissance elles ne proposent, tout au plus, que des vidéos et des webradios (sans rapport avec l'actu pour ces dernières).
J'espère que ça se débloquera d'ici là. Mais quoi qu'il en soit, on peut donc conclure que tsrinfo sera gérer par le nouveau CDD en 2011 au plus tard. Comment est géré cette chaine virtuelle pour l'instant (dans l'ancien CDD ?) et est-ce que concrètement quelque changera sur cette chaine en passant sous VERA ?
P.S.: Si par hasard tu remets la main sur le communiqué en français, est-ce que tu pourrais le mettre ici stp (s'il est en PDF, envoi moi un MP et je ferais le nécessaire) ? Merci d'avance
