Imagine Communications empowers first ST 2110 live production and playout facility in Taiwan, for Da Ai TV
The first broadcaster in Taiwan to carry out SMPTE ST 2110 live production and playout facilities is Da Ai TV, operated by the Tzu Chi Culture and Communication Foundation, a non-profit media group. This deployment consists in a end-to-end IP ecosystem from Imagine Communications.
First launched in 1998, Da Ai TV became the first television station in Taiwan to go digital in 2005. The new ST 2110-compliant Imagine infrastructure ― spanning live production, ingest, playout, automation and master control ― reaffirms Da Ai TV’s position as one of the most forward-thinking media organizations in the region.
Da Ai TV’s new master control and playout workflow is built on Imagine’s Versio™ integrated playout platform and ADC™ automation. Featuring ST 2110 I/Os, advanced graphics and master control capabilities, the Versio playout devices integrate with the ADC automation in a seamless, end-to-end content management ecosystem.
Imagine’s Magellan™ Control System simplifies management and operation of the entire workflow, from production through master control and playout. The next-gen control layer also incorporates Magellan Touch, Imagine’s user-centric control framework.
To ensure seamless integration of existing SDI and new IP equipment, Da Ai TV uses Imagine’s Selenio™ Network Processor (SNP) as a compact gateway. At Da Ai TV, multiple SNPs are deployed throughout the new facility, providing various core processing functionality and serving as low-latency, HDR-aware production multiviewers.
The new playout and master control system at Da Ai TV was implemented in association with local Imagine partner and systems integrator Interactive Digital Technologies (IDT).
