Summary The TA3 television has decided to fully upgrade their technology of broadcasting. Our task was to upgrade the production chain built on Avid products and integrate it closely with the Octopus content management system. To do this, we have used our Traco MediaBridge plug-in.
The solution The subject of the contract was the complete upgrade of the shared disk array, the Avid Interplay asset management virtualization and the upgrade of the connected editing workplaces. In our case, this was the first implementation of the Interplay server solution into a virtualized environment that we implemented on the VMware platform and Dell hardware. To link the Octopus content management system and Avid Interplay production asset management, we have developed our own software solution – Traco MediaBridge plug-in. The result is more comfortable work in the Octopus Newsroom user interface. Once logged in, the editor can instantly access Avid Interplay’s asset management database structure, quickly find and use the desired shot or sequence.
