NDTV WW’s Solution:
Keeping in mind the fast workflows required for news programming, NDTV WW’s project team proposed a completely tapeless content acquisition using Sony’s XDCAM HD 35Mbps as the station format. The facility architecture is based on an end-to-end Grass Valley workflow, with Octopus as the NRCS, Front Porch DIVA as the archiving solution, WASP for online graphics and Media Nucleus as the BMS. The News studio has a Samsung Video Wall & Sony PMW200 ENG cameras have been used to keep costs down.
The Grass Valley architecture includes EDIUS for editing, STRATUS for media asset management, AURORA for PCR play-out and K2 EDGE for MCR play-out plus channel branding.
