In the beginning of 2014, SI Media has completed a great project in Yaroslavl (Russia), at Первый Ярославский, the main channel of the Oblast region, together with our partner and systems integrator Global Systems.
For this installation SI Media provided a complete end-to-end solution IT-based with AJA Boards both for the automation system and for the production play-out.
The system is composed by 9 servers and several workstations for newsroom (25 MediaNews Client licenses) and traffic:
-MediaDevice, with the SQL Database Main, the devices controller (A/V Router, Master Control) and the MediaLinker to import the advertising playlist from VideoInternational
-MediaArchive, with the media asset management platform, he SQL Database Backup and the central NAS attached
-MediaProxy, with proxy and transcoder engine to generate low-res copy of each asset that enters the system (in MP4) and to transcode the contents that have to be uploaded to Youtube in the proper profile
-MediaPlay for main automation channel management with AJA Corvid-22
-MediaPlayBK for backup automation channel management with AJA Corvid-22
-MediaCG1 and MediaCG2 for channel branding and character generator, one dedicated to the automation system and one to the production play-out
-MediaNewsPlay for the production play-out (the airing of the rundowns coming from MediaNews), equipped with AJA Corvid-22
-MediaRec for the automated base band ingest from any source (satellites, studios, live feeds..) available as inputs in the A/V Router
