Media Asset Capital instrumental in development of new transmission playout centre at STV

Scottish TV’s (STV) new playout centre, at its Glasgow Pacific Quay headquarters, has gone live to air providing content to all STV’s regions.

Media Asset Capital was instrumental in the design and technology selection, creating RFPs for automation and supporting equipment.

MAC worked with STV management to define the broadcast technology strategy, and then with the operations and engineering teams to develop the technology and workflow models.

Jacqui Finnerty, Director of Broadcast Technology & Operations at STV said: “MAC provided STV with a rare combination of strategy and deep technical and broadcast operational experience. They have worked in this industry for several decades and understand the challenges and issues facing broadcasters.”

The new playout centre utilises SAM automation, and a MAM solution developed in house by STV, and based on Vidispine.
