Swiss Public Service Broadcaster
RTS Selects VSNExplorer
R

adio Télévision Suisse (RTS),
a public-service radio and TV
station based in Geneva and Lausanne
that broadcasts in French-speaking
areas of Switzerland, has selected the
VSNExplorer platform.
The solution will help RTS
consolidate its global production
systems architecture and establish
a global MAM for its four radio
stations, two TV channels, and several
interactive platforms.
RTS chose VSNExplorer, including
the production asset management
(PAM) and media asset management
modules, as well as its integrated web
video editor, Wedit, following a twoyear process. During this period, VSN
also collaborated with RTS in a proofof-concept phase to determine all the
functionalities required for the RTS
enterprise MAM.
"We were looking for a centralised
and fully web-based solution to
manage all types of media for both
broadcast and broadband needs. It was

important for us to have an
open and scalable solution,
which we could easily
deploy and integrate in RTS
production
environment.
VSNExplorer will allow us
to address to a large panel
of internal users and will
help them to intuitively
manage their assets in a
collaborative way. We are
confident that VSN is the
right partner as they do
understand our business and needs,"
said Gérard Saudan, Project Manager
at RTS.
An important requirement for RTS
was the provision of a single interface
that was easy to operate for several
different types of users. This system
also needed to be scaled and expanded
in order to provide more concurrent
accesses and/or functionalities in the
future. Furthermore, VSNExplorer
was required to integrate and interact
with existing RTS equipment and

collaboration with RTS, we were
able to provide our VSNExplorer
solution with MAM and PAM modules,
demonstrating our ability
to work to meet individual
customer needs as well
as the flexibility of the
VSNExplorer
platform
based on its highly modular
system and its ability to
meet individual customer
needs."

Seven Network Australia Deploys
TVU Networks' Solutions
T

he Seven Network, Australia's
free-to-air TV network, deployed
its fleet of TVU Networks' receivers and
mobile IP transmitters for several highprofile, live sporting events, including
the Winter and Paralympic Games
from PyeongChang and the 2018
Commonwealth Games which were
hosted in Australia.
Seven's large fleet of TVU units
also regularly provides live IP
video streaming daily for local and
international news coverage, the
network's popular Sunrise morning
show, the Melbourne Cup, the
Australian Football League and more.
With a large number of Australian
athletes at the Winter Games,
Paralympic Games and Commonwealth
Games, Seven wanted to maximise live
coverage of Australian athletes and
their families before, during and after
the events.
TVU receivers and mobile IP
transmitters were used extensively

"With the TVU units
and mobile apps, we
could really localise
our live coverage in
a number of ways,"
said Seven Network's
Telecommunications
Manager Dave Watts.

technology, we would
not have been able to

Seven's main master control room in
Melbourne.
Avoiding high cell charges while
waiting for live interviews to begin,
Seven used TVU's Economy Preview
mode to reduce bandwidth. Economy
Preview provides a low-resolution
preview of the live shot with audio at a
fixed latency until the video is ready to
go on air in full HD.
For the Commonwealth Games,
Seven served as the Australian
broadcast rights holder, using a
total of 16 TVU transmitters. For this
event, live shots were received at
both the IBC (where Seven had four
TVU Transceiver decoders), and at
the main Sydney Seven News master
control room. Seven also deployed
TVU transmitters for support coverage
during
