TVT Media deploys Evertz’ DC-ONE replay system

April 6, 2019

Evertz Microsystems, a global player in media and entertainment technology solutions, has announced the deployment of Evertz’ DC-ONE replay system and production suite by TVT.

TVT Media is the global content services powerhouse formed by TVT’s acquisition of Amsterdam based DMC in 2017. TVT provides end-to-end media logistics and content services including compliance and access services, VOD and linear media publishing, OTT and fibre distribution.

Key services provided by TVT include helping clients comply with the standards of industry regulators such as Ofcom, turning live material around for VOD and catch-up platforms, as well as generating access services (subtitles) as quickly as possible for VOD and catch-up services. To enable these services a highly available, secure and easy to operate solution to capture and manipulate multiple streams of live video is critical. This solution must seamlessly integrate into TVT’s hybrid cloud environment and be operable remotely from any of TVT’s operations centers. Following a rigorous selection process TVT selected Evertz’ DC-ONE and deployed the platform across datacentres proximate to major video switches such as BT Tower.

Evertz’ DC-ONE is an intuitive replay system and production suite that provides all of the essential tools needed for any demanding live production. DC-ONE provides advanced production tools including zooming, split-screens, ganged inputs and transcoding in a streamlined, easy-to-use platform that is fully upgradable. DC-LIVE-EDIT provides instant editing capabilities without the need to transfer content to an edit station and can access delayed content directly from DC-ONE. With its simple and intuitive user interface, DC-LIVE-EDIT is ideal for editing live content.

“Live content represents some of the most valuable investments that our clients make. They are often high profile with large audiences and attract critical attention. This means that we were looking for a robust and easy-to-use solution that provided a highly versatile platform to allow us to handle live material, whether this is capture for VOD, generating high quality subtitles or audio description for catch-up, or to assist with regulatory compliance. Working with Evertz enabled us to deploy this in a way that worked seamlessly in our hybrid media cloud and allowed our operations teams in multiple locations to use the platform.” Said Peter Elvidge – VP Technology TVT Media.

“The DC-ONE platform provides a tremendous level of functionality for many applications including regulatory compliance, and represents the industry’s best value for a live production platform,” said Mo Goyal, Senior Director, International Business Development – Live Media Production at Evertz. “TVT is an industry leader in media services and we congratulate them on the successful deployment of their DC-ONE compliance solution.”
