Telefónica has renewed its contract with Tedial for its media asset management (MAM) infrastructure project at Spain’s national broadcaster, Radio y Televisión Española (RTVE).

rtve sede 21 december 2017RTVE is in the middle of a digital transformation process, which includes multiple technology advancement projects within its headquarters, that will allow it to adapt to present and future technology evolutions. Within this digital strategy is the renovation project of the broadcaster’s historical archive, which will allow greater synergy between its systems and digital workflows, enabling it to adapt to changing requirements years after implementation of the original project.

Telefónica, is upgrading RTVE’s MAM solution from Tedial Tarsys to Tedial Evolution, which will provide the broadcaster with a more advanced workflow orchestration and media business process management (BPM) solution.

The upgrade will allow RTVE to migrate its historical archive to the new platform, to automate its entire MAM workflow from ingest to distribution and to have more advanced integrations with third-party systems. Telefónica, is again main contractor of the overhaul project and is in charge of the hardware platform upgrade, the integration and the engineering project that will allow RTVE a smooth transition to the new platform.

The Tedial upgrade led by Telefonica also means that RTVE now has a centralised system that can manage content from all three of its sites in Torrespaña, Prado & Barcelona from one central site (Prado), with disaster recovery situated in Barcelona.

“We are delighted that RTVE has continued to trust Tedial and Telefónica to update and migrate its historical archive to the new Evolution platform,” said Esther Mesas, Tedial CSO/CMO. “The project comprises the complete RTVE archive that nowadays is handling more than 500,000 hours of content, which is one of the largest digitised archives in the world. The system is already in use and the amount of historical content archived is increasing every year.”

José Luis García, systems director, Servicios Audiovisuales Platforms and Audiovisual, Telefónica, added: “It has been a pleasure for us to work again with RTVE and Tedial. This new project will offer easier operation and will deliver optimised workflows adapted to the new customer requirements, due to changing needs since the original historical archive digitisation project took place.”
