TV5 News, an Indian media company, and its satellite Telugu News Channel, has invested in Ross Video’s master control solution, MC1, for its international feeds for USA playout. “We are using Ross’ MC1 for our international feeds for USA playout where the content is different from our main channel,” explained G Srinivasa Reddy, Manager – Technical at TV5 News. “We wanted a product that was easy to configure and use, with the core objective to move away from a complicated system and establish a seamless solution integrating with 3rd party equipment.”
MC1 gave TV5 the choice of control from both the DashBoard touch screen and the MC1 physical control panel. With the intuitive DashBoard Facility Control System, TV5 operators can design and build their own CustomPanels, or customize existing panels to the specific needs of their operation.
“MC1 is now running in a 24/7 environment, and DashBoard operation has allowed us an easy transition, bringing us up to speed pretty quickly,” continued G Srinivas Reddy. “We are happy with Ross Video overall and the installation and training by Ross’ business partner, Visual Technologies India was great. MC1 has allowed us a full-fledged master control switcher within budget.”
