In 2012, Canal+ wishes to group within the same control room the playout of its 3 free channels: D8, D17 and iTÃ©lÃ©.
In this context, SGT supplies its platform VEDA including:
Canal+ chose SGT and its range VEDA to equip its new playout control room. In this project, SGT also guarantees the smooth running of the interfaces with the third party systems (graphics,servers, subtitling) and with information systems specific to Canal+ (MIT and Antenna). In spite of a tight schedule and complex workflows, the project is a success. Started in June, 2012, D8 and D17 was on air in January, 2013, iTELE in July, 2013.
VEDA adapts himself to the constraints of operation. Each TV channel is different in terms of programming: a majority of video programs of stock on D17, several lives a day over D8 and 18 hours of studio production for iTELE. What influences the way of managing the playlist everyday: lives trimming and adjustments on D8, breaking news and last-minute modifications on iTELE â¦ VEDA offers the necessary flexibility to adapt itself to the characteristics of each TV channel while keeping precision and unconditional reliability.
Specific interfaces organized between VEDA and the various systems:
Automation of the workflow for ultra-fast VOD delivery. VEDA automation allows to schedule an export VOD by the positioning of an EVS on the program line of the concerned program. VEDA realizes the encoding in real time and just like broadcast lives, and prepares the automatic extraction of the inter-programs, by piloting Pipelines of Telestream. The creation on-line delivery of Â VOD files are made in a totally automatic way.
