Solid Solutions, Dynamic Newscasts
Star Sports, the largest Indian sports broadcaster, chose wTVision's services for their new studio in Mumbai. The services included the deployment of all the resources needed to cater to the graphics needed for their live studio productions.
These resources include: hardware, software, human resources and consulting services. wTVision has now become a major graphics manpower outsourcing player in the industry and in this project has deployed 3 bi-lingual (Hindi and English) operators.
These operators, manage the entire workflow of on-air graphics in live studio programs, ensuring a flawless graphics coverage. We have also deployed our highly trained graphics designer to create day to day graphics for the studio productions.
The operators use wTVision’s Studio CG, a cross platform character generator workflow to manage and control graphics, in real-time, by controlling two Vizrt graphic engines. The graphics templates are created by the client on Vizrt’s design tool and integrated using Studio CG.
In order to provide an integrated workflow, Studio CG is integrated with a newsroom system (ENPS) through a MOS Gateway. This integration allows journalists to choose from the program’s existing graphic templates and to edit its content directly. These edited “pages” will be instantly available for playout on Studio CG via the wTVision MOS Gateway.
The company also developed an application to manage Twitter posts, that moderates the messages and guarantees that only the right tweets go on-air.
