IBC 2013: DVS redefines Broadcast Production with VENICE(August 27, 2013)
GmbH (DVS) will be showing how TV studios can make their production workflow more effective
and cost-efficient by using the VENICE Media Production Hub. In addition to its future-ready video
features, VENICE paves the way for highly optimized file-based workflows in studio production.
Thanks to the multitude of supported file formats, codecs and resolutions up to 4K UHD, the Media
Production Hub offers total flexibility and is completely future-proof. DVS has also expanded its
studio production line with an innovative Media Asset Management solution.
Versatility and ease of integration into existing workflows are at the heart of the Media Production
Hub's design. It is also available in multiple versions with different chassis sizes, channel numbers
and internal storage capacities. VENICE Element is designed specifically to meet the needs of
studio and channel playout.
VENICE supports resolutions from SD to HD as well as 4K. This enables broadcasters to add
future-ready solutions to their workflows right now without tying themselves to a specific resolution.
With its open system architecture, VENICE offers the best possible basis for high-quality 4K
playout. With the support for codecs such as Sony XAVC for HD and 4K in VENICE, DVS is
demonstrating its ability to adapt rapidly to meet new standards.
The Avid Workflow Option enables the unique collaboration with Avid production environments, with
VENICE combining direct signal and file ingest in Avid ISIS® and Interplay®. As the material can be
viewed and cut during recording, the content can be created more quickly and the workflow
designed more efficiently as a result. Another new feature that will be presented at IBC is the
outgest function. It allows individual clips or entire sequences cut in Media Composer® to be
transferred from ISIS/Interplay environments for direct playout using VENICE or for further file
its ease of use, it is specially tailored to the needs of content teams who can conveniently search
all their media files and, for instance, prepare their news cut. The integration in VENICE and
Spycer® helps make workflows seamless, fast and effective. The system is modular in design and
can also be scaled afterwards.
The support of manufacturer-independent interfaces such as MOS and FIMS allows for flexibility in
the workflow. By doing so, DVS was the world's first company to incorporate the FIMS open
communications standard, which has been approved by the AMWA (Advanced Media Workflow
Association) in the USA and the EBU (European Broadcast Union) in Europe, into a system.
Currently, the FIMS services ?Transform? and ?Capture? are supported.
Niklas Fabian, Product Manager at DVS: "We are working continually on helping broadcasters set
up their workflows even more efficiently by using our VENICE Media Production Hub. With its
compatibility with all known broadcast solutions, its modular and open design, and its multi-channel
software and hardware architecture, VENICE lays the foundation for all of this."
