The NGC Group, owner of several U.S.-based Korean TV channels, has purchased the VectorBox integrated playout solution to broadcast live news, thematic programs and prerecorded shows from its newly established KBNC-TV operation in San Francisco.
The tapeless workflow broadcasts Korean programming seven days a week, 24 hours a day. The program lineup includes a combination of popular shows produced by Korean media giant MBC with a variety of live news and thematic programs produced out of the San Francisco studio.
KBNC uses the VectorBox system to manage ingest and playout of prerecorded programs transmitted from MBC in Korea. The system also is used for live program playout with full control over graphics for shows produced in San Francisco.
