VSN Unveils the ‘Tapeless 2.0’ Concept at IBC 2011
Following its Spider R&D project on the way to a new generation of tapeless solutions, VSN will be presenting several new versions of its main products at the IBC show, which will be held in Amsterdam next September, 9th to 13th. All new versions and product enhancements in News Production, MCR Automation and BMS areas will be available for demonstrations at the booth number 7G33.
Distributed News & Live Production Ecosystem
VSNNEWS features now a set of new functionalities including the system’s integration with different social networks like Twitter and Facebook and SOA interfaces with MAM solutions. The proposed architecture is completely scalable as it grows, because most of the services are now centralized and operated by ‘workers’, no matter the size of the system and the number of lo-res and hi-res clients involved. The web clients for text and video editing will be showcased in Europe for the first time. Also, in the way towards enhanced interoperability, VSN will be showing a complete integration of its VSNIPTRANSFER content contribution tool with Avid’s editing environment. Avid’s NLEs are also compatible and INews can be integrated with VSN’s MAM system since last NAB. The same VSNIPTRANSFER client can now be installed on Mac OS too.
The ability to customize workflows for each customer (Worfklow Manager or BPM), the seamless integration with VSNIPTRANSFER to relocate resources and, finally, the combination of Web architecture with Windows and Mac OS platforms, make the VSN News-MAM system one of the most powerful and flexible solutions in the market.
The top-class VSNMULTICOM automation reaches version 9.10. It features native integration with Omneon, Orad and Miranda, unlimited linear channel scalability, 5 levels of redundancy (storage, video channels, video servers, device control and playlists, either n+1, n+n, etc.), and improved customized shortcuts for better usability, among others.
Broadcast Management System (BMS)
The latest VSNCREATV version shows now a greatly improved advertising management module, an advanced content purchase contract module and a much easier integration with VSN or third party’s MAM and automation due to its redesigned public API.
TAPELESS 2.0 concept
VSN has been supporting file-based workflows and TAPELESS environments for over 10 years. In view of the constant evolution and current competition in the broadcast market, the Spanish company decided to re-design all its end-to-end broadcast solutions using the ultimate tools in software development (Web Services, HTML5, MS Silverlight, AD, workflow scripting, etc.). VSN is proud to present the TAPELESS 2.0 concept to the industry; a new generation of software solutions in an open, reliable Broadcast Management Ecosystem.VSN’s Spider R&D project includes multiplatform distribution, cloud computing, remote, multi-site working environments, seamless integration among multiple areas and non-proprietary, scalable architecture. TV channels will benefit from file-based workflows completely customized in a future-proof, open ecosystem.
