Time Warner Cable's Oceanic system recently upgraded its Mililani facility with broadcast station automation tools from NVerzion.
The NControl automation system from NVerzion is being used at the facility to provide the operator complete station automation. Using the technology from NVerzion, Oceanic can record, play, schedule and control its own locally originated channel. Time Warner Cable is also using NGest and NPoint to clean up video files, evaluate and mark video files, and for ad insertion.
"One of the chief reasons for our installation of the NVerzion automation package was the huge benefit-versus-cost value it offered," said Jay Yamamoto at Oceanic Time Warner Cable. "We reviewed several other automation systems on the market today, but NVerzion was the only solution that provided us with the functionality we needed at the right price point."
NVerzion said NControl enabled scheduled control of multiple devices, such as routers and master control switchers, and it could be configured to be as simple as controlling the single output of a video server or expanded to automate the entire content workflow.
