IVS SerCon News Playout

The IVS SerCon software is a MOS Gateway and the Studio Play-out solution. It`s task is to connect to the Octopus NRCS and control the video and CG servers and teleprompters. The IVS SerCon provides a professional solution for users wanting a robust and reliable Play-out system for their news and live programs.

Our IVS SerCon uses MOS based integration between the Octopus newsroom system and the Venice video server. This provides a full cycle solution for accomplishing TV production, news and other TV programs.

For live Play-out operation typically 4 channels can be utilized. These can be matched with several Running-orders and as well there is an option for video positioning and trimming on each channel. The order of the Running-order materials may be changed via the User Interface or in the Octopus System while in operation.

The status of the Venice video server storage (capacity, accessibility of videos, etc.) is being displayed in the software. The IVS Sercon provides the possibility for managing placeholders and videos, while the Pay-out status is indicated in the Octopus system.

The server-client application enables the User to set up the number of clients. Besides the video Play-out the system contains the necessary components for advanced graphics. This is managed by a separate CG server.
