Le group TVA, a subsidiary of one of Canada’s largest media companies, Quebecor Media Inc. runs the two communication branches of television and publishing. Le groupe TVA owns and operates six out of 10 TVA networks. The TVA Network airs to almost all of Québec’s francophone audience and most of Canada’s francophone communities.

Recently, le group TVA launched the rebuild of the new control room with the installation of an overdrive automation system for the continuous new channels and the TVA primetime program channels.

Applied Electronics led many of the initial development stages, which started with assisting TVA with their technology choices and configuring the components of the systems.  Several commissioning activities were completed to set up and coordinate the implementation with various technology manufacturers and suppliers.

TVA - Control Room

The rebuild was a major change for TVA as there was a complete overhaul and redesign required to build new studios, control rooms and equipment rooms on another floor, while the existing studios and rooms still operated.

Both control rooms share a Nvision Miranda 8500 Series enterprise hybrid router, which routes all the signals and feeds to the Kaleido multi-screen in each control room.  Applied’s technical team used Ross Video’s Vision 4 switcher, Vinten robotic cameras and Telex RTS intercoms to maintain the overdrive automation system to keep the TV shows up and running.

One of the shows that is produced by the TVA News control room with the new overdrive automation system is Montréal’s hit morning TV show “Salut, bonjour!”
