VertigoXmedia has begun shipping its Xstation channel-in-a-box solution, which has the resources needed to create, schedule and broadcast complete DTV multicast sub-channels with national, local, and hyper-local content.
Xstation is a bundle including several Xmedia Suite applications and the VertigoXG graphics engine. The system provides dynamic control over long-form clips, promos, commercial spots, data tickers and crawls, sponsor logos, local weather and channel branding using a station's existing traffic system, or as a standalone solution.
Xstation is based on template-driven functionality. It contains built-in support for numerous data sources including AP, Bloomberg, STATS, Weather Central, Reuters, and Hyperfeed, as well as local and networked files, databases and Web feeds.
