TV2000 implements digital news production system with MediaPower
MediaPower integrates news production infrastructure with Dalet newsroom solutions with NetApp storage, and Front Porch archive system
Genoa, Italy (July 23, 2014) – MediaPower, Italy’s go-to broadcasting solutions provider, announced another customer win today after helping TV2000 cutover its news production system to production. TV2000, the largest Roman-Catholic themed broadcasting network in Italy, has consistently chosen MediaPower to supply and integrate Dalet MAM (media asset management) and software tools and solutions for its regular end-to-end news production and programming. The cutover marked a new era in the broadcasting company’s history as well as Catholic-themed programming in the country.
“Nothing could be more exciting than helping TV2000 improve their content delivery capabilities and reach by providing and integrating industry-leading systems for their news production workflow," said Marcello Dellepiane of MediaPower. “We hope to continue our streak in helping future-proof their infrastructure not just in producing and delivering high quality content to their viewers, but also in archiving and repurposing content for other platforms,"
MediaPower provisioned and implemented a suite of tools that include Dalet MAM, the integrating MAM core that provides a powerful editorial and production workflow engine, and harnesses the power of Dalet News Suite, Dalet’s advanced, end-to-end production and automation system for multichannel newsrooms; Dalet Media Life, a fully integrated set of tools for functions such as bulk ingest, automatic QC, compliance and rough-cut editing, language/captioning and content repurposing; and Dalet Brio, the platform for centralized ingest and studio playback of broadcast quality video in SD and HD formats, and distribution. Dalet systems, running on HP server infrastructure, feature intuitive programs and interfaces that allow journalists and technical operators to streamline the whole planning, ingesting, broadcast playout, simultaneous content editing, and news production process. MediaPower also provided TV2000 a NetApp FAS6020 storage system that serves as a scalable, high-bandwidth, centralized enterprise storage system for all production and playout content, and a Front Porch Digital Archive, consisting of Front Porch Digital DIVA Software + Oracle SL150 Tape Library, as system archive for the entire workflow. The entire application and hardware infrastructure system allowed TV2000 to create a full digital newsroom environment consisting of newscasts and live productions from three broadcast studios.
MediaPower has long been a trusted name in the media and entertainment market for distributing Dalet, NetApp and Front Porch Digital products in Italy and Europe. It has also established a strong foothold in the Italian media as a primary integrator of solution components, from design conceptualization to implementation, until the entire system and workflow is in production.
MediaPower was established in 1993. Since then the company went on to become one of the most widely recognized broadcasting company not just in Italy, but also in the entire European Union. The company started out as an integrator and distributor of networking and storage solutions for leading media industry tools provider, SeaChange International, DataDirect Networks and Dalet.
