Imagine delivers playout automation system to Knowledge Network in Canada
Imagine has been selected by the Canadian public broadcast, Knowledge Network, to provide a software-based channel creation solution using Versio integrated playout platform and ADC automation.
Publicly funded and commercial free, Knowledge Network broadcasts and streams local and international content 24/7, offering a mix of documentaries, arts and culture, prime-time dramas, and children’s programming watched by over a million viewers each week.
“We were looking to replace our aging playout system with a reliable solution that had a roadmap for continued development and a responsive support network,” said Oliver Eichel, director of broadcast technology and IT at Knowledge Network. “Imagine’s in-depth understanding of broadcast workflows and continuous development of their product lines, including special features that we requested, gave us confidence to make this transition. The Imagine team provided exceptional support throughout the entire implementation process ― from planning to commissioning, to go live.”
“We are excited to welcome Knowledge Network to the worldwide family of broadcasters who rely on the proven combination of Versio and ADC for secure, flexible, dynamic playout,” said Glodina Lostanlen, chief sales officer at Imagine Communications. “Versio has become the industry’s playout platform of choice by delivering tiered solutions to fit any budget and all channel creation needs ― whether you’re planning an infrastructure refresh or making the transition from SDI to IP or the cloud.”
