Etere has delivered a technology refresh to leading Vietnamese channel, TodayTV, with the launch of Etere 30.3 that includes a series of new innovations and updates to maximise system performance.
Vietnam’s leading TV station, TodayTV has renewed its confidence in Etere with an upgrade of its system to Etere 30.3, the latest software version released by Etere in Q4 2020.
Etere’s software-centric solutions are designed to achieve efficiencies through centralised workflows that deliver both external and internal information across distributed systems in real-time. TodayTV leverages the benefits of Etere Ecosystem, a framework of modular and scalable software tools that foster collaboration amongst distributed teams and provide business intelligence data to identify performance bottleneck and enhance operational efficiency. The Etere Ecosystem allows users to manage the complete broadcasting workflow, including production processes (newsroom, playout, ingest, post-production etc) and administrative workflows (scheduling, planning, CRM and business intelligence etc) with a single system.
TodayTV is equipped with Etere modules including Etere Automation, a completely scalable and flexible playout that runs on different levels of fault tolerance to match a variety of requirements. These include backup, master/clone and disaster recovery modes. Additionally, Etere Automation’s database independent capabilities ensure a reliable and fault-resilient performance. It integrates with the database of Etere Media Asset Management to manage a seamless retrieval of asset files/playlists and to manage last minute changes, all on a standard Windows PC.
The station also runs Etere Ingest, a software solution that is able to perform manual, scheduled and automatic ingest. In addition, it is able to ingest from all common feeds. With user-defined workflows, the ingested media can be captured in real-time from virtually any video source, broadcast stream, cloud storage, FTP or IP streams.
To add on, the system includes Etere Memory, an all-inclusive compliance logger software that can be used to record, create, edit clips, add metadata, transcode and distribute content to multiple platforms including VOD, OTT and social media. It allows operators to record and view media files simultaneously with minimal delay. Besides that, Etere Memory includes Etere Player for instant browsing on both web and Windows. Etere Memory also comes equipped with data protection and advanced redundancy to record files on remote servers.
TodayTV also runs Etere Advanced QC, a cost-effective and cloud-ready solution that performs automatic quality checks on up to 4 media files simultaneously. The web-based video quality check software is designed with features to streamline QC analysis and while preventing inaccurate and time consuming manual checks. Etere Advanced QC enables maximum flexibility in setting detection parameters and profile configurations.
