VRT selects LiveOS for software based studio project

October 27, 2022

NetOn.Live, a media technology start-up, has announced that its LiveOS software platform has been chosen by Belgian public broadcaster VRT as the video service for its Software Based Studio Project.

NetOn.Live was awarded the contract after going through a public tender process. LiveOS is a solution that moves functionalities traditionally found in dedicated hardware devices to software modules, that run on generic IT servers. It offers a transformative easy-to-use, web-based environment for production teams of any size.

With installation times moving from months to days, lower power consumption, cooling and rack space requirements, working with LiveOS is more sustainable and cost effective than traditional broadcasting workflows.

With this project we want to make our production environment more adaptable and scalable, so we can put more focus on users, creativity, and work processes.” says Dries Tastenhoye, Project Manager of the Software Based Studio Project.

“We’re eager to start the collaboration with NetOn.Live in this strategic, forward-looking project,” says Stijn Lehaen, Technology Director at VRT. “Throughout the tendering procedure and the ensuing PoC, they’ve shown that LiveOS is a mature platform that offers the flexibility and shareability we’re looking for, while maintaining the lowest latencies and highest, uncompressed video quality.”

LiveOS is a truly transformative platform that can enable local, remote, and decentralised live media production,” says Michel De Wolf, Founder and CEO of NetOn.Live. “We believe that moving away from broadcast-specific hardware to unified IT equipment and software will change the face of broadcasting for the better.”
