Press release from: S4M - Solutions for Media GmbH

(S4M) Cologne, August 28, 2009 – With the implementation of the project “VPN” (Vernetzte Produktion NDR, translates “linked production NDR”) German public broadcaster Norddeutscher Rundfunk (NDR) put into operation one of the largest installations of S4M´s Video Production Management System VPMS.

Deployed by private and public service broadcasters throughout Europe, S4M’s VPMS supports the management of digital video assets from acquisition through production to playout, distribution and archiving.

The “VPN” system realized at NDR is an integrated solution that consists of several elements. In this context VPMS is a key module that integrates smoothly in other systems and connects them to a consistent overall system. For instance, Annova Systems´ newsroom system “Open Media” as well as several Final Cut Pro editing suites were integrated in the production system. This way, television editors can access and edit video material on their PC workstations and can easily send VPMS generated editing lists (EDLs) for fine-cut to the Final Cut Pro suites.

“VPN” supports a completely file-based production for NDR. From ingest over voice over to playout of TV reports, everything is accomplished without tapes.

Since all TV control rooms in Hamburg are connected to VPMS so far, and programs such as “DAS!” or “Mein Nachmittag” are accomplished without tapes, all newsrooms are supposed to access the system bit by bit. In the future, all television programs produced in Hamburg are supposed to be created tapeless with VPMS.

Visit S4M at IBC 2009. You find us at stand 3.A41 and at the Microsoft stand in the Topaz Lounge.
