Crispinâs on-air playback application, RapidPlayX provides playlist monitoring and control for their on-air channels, allowing operators to create and load playlists, edit events, issue playlist commands and monitor event status.
Crispin received an order from WSKG-TV, a Binghamton, NY, non-profit public television station, to support asset management, satellite recording, media ingest, device control, traffic translation and control of six channels for on-air playback. The Crispin solution includes nine workstations, each focused on a specific workflow task.
WSKGâs traffic department uses Supervisory View to see, from a single screen, multiple play-to-air channel status complete with visual notification of messages, warnings and operator intervention requests.
The project includes Omneon servers and NVision routing controlled by Crispin System 2000 automation, enabling the station to transmit HD signals as well as multiple channels of SD. SignaSys, a San Jose, CA systems integrator was responsible for the stationâs digital master control rebuild.
Crispinâs on-air playback application, RapidPlayX provides playlist monitoring and control for their on-air channels, allowing operators to create and load playlists, edit events, issue playlist commands and monitor event status. Crispinâs RecordScheduler is used to execute consecutive daily schedules of program acquisition events.
Crispinâs Mapper application converts WSKGâs daily ProTrack traffic schedule into an automated playlist, ready for on-air playback by RapidPlayX. Properly interfacing the traffic system is critical to successful automation. Crispinâs Mapper ârules filesâ were custom designed to WSKGâs specific requirements.
The facility uses AssetBase to monitor and track specific video assets through metadata such as house numbers, ISCI; these database features provide operators with additional methods to search and retrieve information.
