- VPMS now successfully in production at German broadcaster, Saarländische Rundfunk (SR)
- VPMS (Video Production Management System) simplifies production workflows and enables transition to full HD production
Before they were ready to implement full HD production, SR had some work to do upgrading their infrastructure. It made sense to take the opportunity to review and tailor affected workflows and to create the connectivity needed for future-proofed, fully networked operations. The future-readiness of cross-media played a key role here. Workflows that allow content to be published to both linear TV and online platforms will become increasingly important in the future and the new system has the flexibility to allow workflows to be revised or expanded as required.
“We are delighted to have gained a new VPMS customer within the ARD group. SR will be able to use the new system for central management of the production environment for HD programs and archive material, secure in the knowledge that the system will be able to respond to the changing demands of the world of media”, comments Holger Noske, Vice President Broadcast Solutions, Arvato Systems. “VPMS is also an important building block in connecting SR with the rest of the ARD group,”
As well as the new production infrastructure, the VPMS implementation means that all media content – including current productions as well as the SR and ARD archives – is available to all journalists at all times. Searching across the entire system will be significantly easier in the future.
