New UK gambling channel launches with BroadStream

June 30, 2015

Win Cash Live, the video led gambling entertainment brand, has partnered with automated playout specialist, BroadStream Solutions, to go on air with its new fully interactive gambling TV channel and website

The new channel launched is utilising BroadStream’s OASYS platform to playout 3 hours of video content each night between 10pm and 1am. Win Cash Live currently uses a two channel solution from BroadStream, with the primary channel carrying all of its promos and interstitials and the second for its back screen content.

“The versatility of the BroadStream playout platform is very impressive and has surprised us a few times with capabilities we didn’t know existed,” commented Simon Sukonik, Head of Production at parent company, Lean Forward. “We’re using it more extensively than we’d originally planned, including OASYS’s graphics functionality; For example, we’re using the OASYS’s basic graphics editor to playout .png files created in Photoshop, rather than using our dedicated graphics engine which would incur further expense. We also use a crawl for the credit sequence at the end of the show.”
