Imagen Televisión selects VSN software systems
VSN has announced that its automation and workflow optimization software is powering Imagen Televisión, the first over-the-air television channel to launch in Mexico in more than two decades. Part of Grupo Imagen, one of the biggest media conglomerates in Mexico, Imagen Televisión is using VSN technology to automate, optimize and manage its entire broadcast workflow.
“We’re honored to play this key role in helping Imagen Televisión become a new media option for Mexican audiences,” said Aaron López, VSN Chief Operations Officer (COO). “Our trusted software systems are driving innovation and efficiency in a company that is itself on a path-breaking mission to connect with viewers and create new possibilities.”
VSN has supported Imagen with VSNMulticom, VSNCreatv, VSNExplorer MAM and VSNBroadrec
The Imagen Televisión channel launch required a complete Master Control Room (MCR) automation workflow, integrated with all available third-party equipment. To that end, VSN deployed two VSNMulticom systems, responsible for ensuring uninterrupted broadcasting, and tapped VSNCreatv for TV traffic and program scheduling.
VSN also integrated VSNMulticom and VSNExplorer MAM to manage automated workflows with Harmonic Spectrum media servers and WideOrbit media sales traffic. The deployment allows Imagen Televisión to have a fully automated MCR workflow to export video clips to the broadcast servers. The system can call upon video servers when a clip or scheduled program is not ready to be aired.
Also, Imagen Televisión is using the VSN automation system to segment clips and distribute them to more than 40 regions. Finally, to enable Imagen Televisión to record and save all broadcast content and check that it meets advertising and electoral standards, VSN implemented 42 VSNBroadrec legal compliance solutions.
