Stream Circle together with their local system integrator partner are supplying MTVA with the web sports channel management and playout solution based on Stream Circle playout and Provys planning.
The solution is fully integrated into the MTVA traffic workflow infrastructure including broadcast management system Provys, MAM (Media Asset Management) and sports channels player (EPG).
At Provys the sports plans are constructed. The planned playlist, which contain live feeds, adverts, promo videos and clips are afterwards sent to Stream Circle via its open API. Stream Circle then runs five independent channels producing IP based stream for distribution.
Channel operator uses Stream Circle playout control application to solve any unscheduled situations typical in sports broadcasting and make changes to the playlist when necessary.
Stream Circle fully manages sports graphics to be shown on the screen providing information about
the content. Stream Circle’s auto ingest process generates and stores recordings of live events to a central storage for further processing for VoD and archive purposes.
Stream Circle also generates EPG data and its updates to inform viewers about future programs in advance. The IP feed is distributed to Antenna Hungária headend to be provided to the customers.
The online sports channels of MTVA offers linear OTT service with live feeds and pre-recorded content using Stream Circle playout.
