Vector 3™, a pioneer in graphics and playout solutions, announced that Nash Dom TV (Our House), a private broadcaster for the Penza Oblast region, has implemented multiple VectorBox automated playout systems to manage multi-channel ingest, broadcast graphics, and playout automation. The new tapeless workflow supports 24/7 programming with a mix of live and pre-recorded shows broadcast over traditional and web channels. "Vector offered Nash Dom a tapeless solution with extensive capabilities for managing ingest, broadcast graphics, and playout wrapped into one scalable system. This limited the complexity of building the new master control room without sacrificing reliability. It also reduced the overhead for purchasing and maintaining multiple products," comments, Mr. Dmitry Dubina, Technical Director, Nash Dom TV. "We are incredibly pleased with the Vector system's abilities and performance."
The VectorBox workflow features two VectorBox DSX systems, a Harris Panacea Switcher, and a group of Matrox powered non-linear editing systems. One VectorBox system manages playout of the main channel, while the second system distributes content to the secondary channel as well as managing ingest from several wires. The Vector 3 technology also incorporates a redundant architecture, ensuring failsafe operations 24 hours a day.
VectorBox is the original all-in-one playout solution, with built-in automation, video server and Character Generator (CG). Like the all VectorBox models, the DSX system offers master control automation, giving operators the power to manage every transmission function in the channel; from ingest and playout of content from disk, live, VTR and satellite, to channel branding, file and redundancy management. File format conversions are fully automated, guaranteeing file-based workflows with any standard production and asset management system. "VectorBox DSX is designed to provide a wide range of functions for the master control room. The entry-level system allows broadcasters to build an economical tapeless playout workflow with a clear path to upgrade as their programming grows. This is a sound approach for investing and providing a path for future options," comments Roman Ceano, general manager, Vector 3.
