RSI Conquers Challenges
With LOUISE BMS From PCI
R

SI is the general interest Italianlanguage broadcaster of the
national Swiss media group SSR,
operating two channels.
The relationship between PCI and
RSI built up over the years, starting
more than a decade ago when RSI
started seeking a "traffic" solution
to improve scheduling. RSI chose
LOUISE whose implementation
was an outstanding success in
terms of improved productivity and
streamlined workflows: RSI planners
had immediate access to content,
relevant metadata and graphical

scheduling grids along with builtin tools. It helped eliminate repetitive
tasks as well as many induced errors.
After such a major upgrade, RSI
was ready to tackle the next phase:
shifting from physical media to filebased assets and migrating from SD
to HD. "This is when we realised that
LOUISE was, in fact, much more
than a traffic system," says Roberto
Pomari, RSI's Deputy Director.
"While we were merely looking for
a solution, we ended up finding
a strong partner in PCI: LOUISE
started deploying way beyond

74

Using LOUISE, RSI planners have immediate access to content, metadata,
graphical scheduling grids, and built-in tools

what it had originally been acquired
for, becoming a key part of RSI's
strategic and business planning".
Meanwhile, PCI was accompanying
RSI every step of the way.
LOUISE is an integrated Business
Management System managing
both linear and nonlinear services,
managing programme information
in its centralised database including
its rights, uses and associated
metadata. Its superior and
seamless integration capability was
essential as RSI began upgrading
to an all-digital, HD environment
with new ingest and automation
systems, a SOA backbone and
other components.
"LOUISE 'orchestrates' our
business, collecting and managing
essence and metadata for all
our products" Pomari explains.
"LOUISE's powerful Task Manager
supervises and organises workflows,
throughout the product lifecycle -
across all channels and platforms,
making use of many automatic
features that LOUISE provides."
"PCI provides an integrated
solution and a global vision. Always
talking about one single system is a
major advantage and not disruptive

Roberto Pomari, Head of Business
Development and Deputy of RSI

like solutions involving third party
development: all LOUISE tools
and modules interact seamlessly
together and combine with each
other, making them very powerful",
says Mr. Pomari.
For example, with the combined
use of MediaBench (facilitating
content repurposing for promo or
enhanced video extracts creation)
and Mogador (automating the
delivery of content in appropriate
formats and its metadata to EPGs,
websites, mobile devices, etc.)
RSI was able to recently
restructure its technical production
platform and optimise content for
broadband delivery and web-based
applications.
The partnership between PCI and
RSI is such now that RSI's natural
behaviour is to consult PCI before
making decisions in the evolution
of their business and technical
workflow: LOUISE might just
have the most cost and/or timeeffective solution.

Primestream's FORK v4.6 Platform Debuts At NAB 2014
A

t the 2014 N A B Show,
Pr im e s tre a m will de b u t
FO R K v4.6, its ac cla ime d
software platform for media asset
management and production
automation featuring powerful
new modules and third-party
integrations.
FORK v4.6 features Workflow
Manager, a new FORK module that
allows users to design, control, and
automate production processes that
span multiple departments and
groups within their organisations.
This capability improves
communication and response time
from engineering and support staff,
provides a global view of the tasks
and processes being worked on,
and assigns tasks to specific groups
or users while logging every step
of the process with information

FORK Production Suite v4.6

for analytics.
FORK v4.6 also includes deep
two-way integrations with nonlinear
editors like Adobe Premiere Pro
(CS6 and Creative Cloud), Avid
Media Composer, and Apple Final
Cut Pro X. The integrations support
edit-while-capture workflows
with XDCAM, ProRes, and AVCIntra - empowering sports, news,
entertainment, and corporate video
operations to use industry-leading
NLEs - while gaining the benefits of
the FORK media asset management
and automation platform for
I/O, logging, tagging, proxy
editing, workflow management,
and archiving.
FORK also features new archiving
workflows with SGL, Quantum, and
Atempo enabling FORK users to
navigate/browse, search, and filter

through content inside Content
Navigator - even when the hi-res
media has been archived and
is offline. Other benefits include
partial file restore and LTO robotics
control. FORK is available for Mac
and Windows OS as well as hybrid
environments.
The 2014 NAB Show will see the
introduction of FORK Xchange Suite
3.0, a major upgrade to the Web
and iOS application that provides
instant access to content on FORK
Production servers. Single and
multi-site production operations
can now access their media from
anywhere to manage, create, and
trigger various FORK automations
- enabling seamless hybrid cloud/
ground workflows to interface all
technologies such as archiving and
popular NLE craft editors. Xchange

3.0 also features a completely
redesigned iPad interface optimised
for Apple iOS 7.
Primestream will also introduce
Archive Bridge, a new module
for the FORK Production Suite
that provides tight integrations
between industry-leading archival
solutions and the FORK media asset
management platform.
With
Archive
Bridge,
administrators can track the
status of all archival requests and
analyse the performance of the
infrastructure. Archive Bridge is a
highly configurable client with a
Web-based front end and intuitive
user interface.
Optimised for both Windows
and Mac platforms, it integrates
multiple production environments
with a central archive point to
reduce operational costs by
centralising archival infrastructure
in one location and allow
disaster recovery solutions
for offsite Archival workflows.
Statistics Reporting empowers
administrators to monitor various
performance values of the
Archive Bridge.
