Radio Télévision Suisse (RTS) is an audiovisual public service company belonging to the SSR (Swiss Broadcasting Corporation) media group, which offers programs on four radio channels, two TV channels and numerous digital platforms. RTS live content is also published to the web portal.
As part of a modernization process, RTS wished to establish a more innovative, efficient and friendly content management system. One of its goals was to improve the clips creation workflow for publishing RTS content to the web portal and social media. Actus Digital was selected as the platform that records RTS channels and provides a web-based interface for monitoring the content as well as for editing clips, add metadata and export the clips. The solution is Actus Clip Factory: it can be used from any workstation, from anywhere, by anyone.
“The Actus system ingests video plan guides and metadata, receives RTS live streams, records, stores temporary the video and allows the viewers to segment and document the content, both live and from the archive. The Actus Clip Factory editing tool allows the users to monitor and edit the videos, add metadata, create and publish quickly the clips to the new media platforms” said Jean-Paul Persiali, Product Owner, RTS. “The editing work is performed on standard PCs or MAC without requiring any installation, using Actus’ web-based HTML5 platform. With Actus system we do not need professional editors to create the clips as the workflow is very intuitive and simple. We have significantly improved our turnaround from live to the content publication. Actus Clip Factory is now part of our Service-Orientated Architecture (SOA) by RTS. Therefore, other RTS services can also benefit of this product.”
“We are happy that RTS has chosen Actus Clip Factory and appreciated Actus capabilities of integration and customizations (needed for RTS) according to its needs, said Raphael Renous, Actus CTO. “In order for RTS to have one integrated solution, we integrated our Clip Factory with several automation systems as well as with transcoding farms. All the live clipping of sport, news, weather, talk shows, is done in full HD quality and in multiple locations. Additionally, Actus metadata automation and as Run log files integration gives RTS easy segmentation of the content and faster uploading to their web site.”
