Multichannel Recording & Content Preparation System for the “Channel One Russia” Web-site

SkyLark Technology Inc. realized the project of a multichannel system for encoding and recording of on-air programs for the “Channel One Russia” in HD format.

The system implements coding of 8 received HD-SDI signals and forms traffic IP-streams with several profiles for future on-line broadcasting at the site of the “Channel One Russia” www.1tv.ru.

Recording of all on-air programs is implemented in 24/7 mode, simultaneously with coding, forming proxy and including "orbits" of time zones into files. Recorded materials come into the system of collective editing by proxy-copies, that functions at the basis of the client software News Cut  of SL NEO platform, with using a single database for all users.

Edited materials in Full Res format are efficiently loaded into the media-archive of the portal and become available at the site. Collective mounting is necessary, particularly, for operational "cutting" of newscasts into separate blocks that are placed at the site. The block is a cue with an anchorperson and the video, such blocks form a constantly updated internet-version of a tv-news, that is presented at the first page of the site www.1tv.ru.

Automatic export of the file content is implemented by the instrument Transfer Manager of SL NEO platform: it allows to form up to 8 streams of simultaneous copying for every server, with adjustable speed. 

The program module for decoding teletext from the VANC intervals of the input signals HD-SDI was developed especially for this project. 

We can't but mention, that the subsystem of coding, multichannel recording and mounting, provided by SkyLark Technology, is only a part of a large technical complex that forms the functional of the site of the “Channel One Russia” www.1tv.ru.

The project is being realized jointly by the companies "OKNO-TV", SkyLark Technology and the Internet department of the Directorate of creative planning and internet-broadcasting of the “Channel One Russia” company.
