TVRS & TVRM HD Upgrade
Members of the VOX broadcast family catering to the province of Quebec, TVRS and TVRM are both regional television stations that offer unique and rich programming to their local communities – programming that revolves around quality, informative, innovative ideas, and different opinions on subjects of public interest while covering the regional events.
Both stations recently upgraded to full HD workflows with the help of Applied Electronics in the design, supply and integration of new production and playout solutions for their respective facilities.
TVRS now boasts a Ross Video SoftMetal 3000 video server (SMS) for production, which comes from a line of integrated media servers with I/O and storage all contained in a compact 3 RU package and can plug right into the IT network. SoftMetal uses a networked control scheme - allowing distributed control from anywhere on the network. It supports file based workflows - allowing content to flow nicely from editing to playout – and it is constructed using IT Server Grade components - for easy maintenance and support. It also offers redundant hardware and solid signal interconnect panels.
In addition, TVRS & TVRM has acquired three Ikegami HDK-77EC HD native multi-format CMOS camera systems for their production. Live broadcast shows such as Bingo on TVRS are now done using a Ross Video Crossover switcher in collaboration with a Ross Video Xpression suite and the Ross Video SoftMetal video server, which is integrated with Apple’s Final Cut Pro for a tapeless workflow.
