Use case description

The Park TV channel uses multiple live sources from local zoos and ecosystems as well as public live feed sources from around the world to compose a live educational channel about nature. The channel operator works with live feed sources using preview in a playout monitor, selects the most engaging content at the given time, and switches the content with graphics and audio comments into the output feed. The playout system records the complete output signal and saves it to files with a length of 15 minutes. The content management module automatically registers the files. The planner then creates the playlist for night broadcasting times consisting of these record files.
