Through its local distributor in Brazil, Video System, Spain's VSN has sold a complete end-to-end system to Fish TV, a Brazilian channel entirely dedicated to fishing content. The sale includes media assets management for Adobe Premiere.

fishtvThe project is based on a modular system capable of managing all the channel's content in a full HD workflow, formed by an Ingest system through file transfer using Premiere CS6 non-linear editors and VSNExplorer for media asset management. The project adds a VSNMatic HD playout server with automation, a VSNCG HD module for graphic generation, and a VSNArchive.

The sale reinforces VSN's position in Latin America and Brazil, where it has recently made a concerted effort to support its international expansion.

"VSN has optimised the workflow between sectors, the organisation of the channel and the access to our audiovisual contents, formed by more than 200TB of content," explained Douglas Lessing, Fish TV's technical director. "It's intuitive and easy to use. Users are briefly trained to learn how to use the tools in their daily tasks. The implementation was quick, easy and transparent."

Roberto Calmon, VSN's brand manager at Video Systems, added: "VSN was able to identify the needs of our client and develop a quality project that would fit Fish TV's budget perfectly. They took the time to explain to the channel's employees, that were not familiar with this kind of technology, how each equipment and installation works, and the solution was implemented in a record time."
