Playout System – Nova Broadcast Group

In 2014, in competition with BCE (Broadcasting Center Europe), Techno won a competition to build the Ingest, Playout for Nova Broadcasting Group. The solution Techno has proposed and implemented is a combination of Channel In A Box (CiB) for BroadStream Playback and Central Ingest MAM as well as Central Share storage.

An additional challenge was that all solutions had to co-operate alongside the already existing New TV systems – the Front Porch archive system (now Oracle) and the MISTV traffic system. Another challenge was to simultaneously play HD and SD content, each with different graphics. Last but not least, we had to figure out the automatic conversion of existing SD file content and video links from the Nova TV studio.

In addition to the whole system, video processors (multiview), distributors, auto switches and other Evertz modular equipment were used.

The project implementation deadline was 8 weeks – from the date of contract, through delivery, to integration and commissioning.

The channel was the first full HD channel (Diema Sport 1 HD) that the Nova Broadcasting Group launched on its network.
