LATV Network has selected its OASYS Integrated Playout platform from BroadStream Solutions.

The channel will use the platform to streamline playout operations at LATV’s HD Complex Studios facility in Los Angeles.

LATV delivers locally produced Hispanic content to its owned and operated KJLA, KXLA and KVMD channels, as well as affiliates across the US. The network uses two different workflows, at separate locations within the same facility, that each constitute separate servers, automation and scheduling systems, along with two separate playout operator teams, each producing different file types. As these separate, dedicated pieces of broadcast hardware reach end-of-life, LATV is set to replace them with BroadStream’s OASYS Integrated Playout platform.

Running on commodity-based IT hardware, the company said that OASYS will provide a more efficient way of operating that will consolidate and streamline LATV’s master control functions and standardise operations to save time and resources. Instead of two teams producing two sets of traffic data and receiving two sets of run logs across two master control suites, OASYS will ensure there is no duplication of effort.

“We had some major competition to win this contract with LATV and we’re very pleased that our product offering, our support structure and our no-compromise-attitude to high quality has triumphed,” said Herbert Brenninkmeijer, CEO, BroadStream. “BroadStream Solutions is gaining traction very quickly in the U.S. local TV market and we’ve got some more exciting technology to come in 2016 that will help advance their businesses even further.”

LATV Network features a combination of originally produced television shows and digital platforms, as well as international programmes that have never before been seen in the US.
