NRWision, a community TV station serving the state of Nordrhein-Westfalen, used a filebased system for the first nine years of operations, to upload non-live content created in the studio over an internet connection to a playout server in Unitymedia’s network operation center (NOC). While NRWision had been part of Unitymedia’s channel line-up for quite some time, it was not able to broadcast live over the internet.
