Automated playout specialist, BroadStream Solutions, has provided Made Television, the City TV licence holder for Bristol, Cardiff, Leeds, Tyne and Wear and Teeside (still to launch), with an integrated playout solution for Made to manage all of their channels.
BroadStream, along with independent broadcast systems integrator Megahertz, worked with Made Television to design a tailored, fully redundant playout facility based on its OASYS automated playout solution for the network’s 4 City TV licences. Made Television elected to manage its own playout solution in order to retain control and flexibility of their channel operations.
“Working with BroadStream means we are truly able to compete with national broadcasters in terms of having the best and most reliable technical solutions to satisfy both the viewer and the advertiser,” said Jamie Conway, CEO at Made TV. “This is integral to the business, as our shared services model has been developed to allow local teams to focus on making great local content, so the technology simply just needs to work.”
