Ross Video is introducing an exciting addition to the Abekas Tria video server product line: the Tria News™ playout server, designed specifically for use in rapid-fire live television newsroom environments.
Tria News is built with robust Abekas video processing hardware that’s optimized for efficient ingest and confident playout of newsroom media assets from four independent PGM playout channels, all controlled from newsroom automation systems.
Featuring a dedicated HD-SDI baseband input, the Tria News playout server can ingest and store live content, encoded with DVCPRO-HD.
This captured content can also be quickly and easily trimmed using simple “heads and tails” edit tools built right into the Tria News server itself. Once this content is clipped, it can seamlessly play back-to-back with native XDCAM and AVC-I MXF files during a run-down playout.
Tria News is tightly integrated with Ross Video’s Inception newsroom computer system, Streamline media asset management and OverDrive automated production control platform. With this seamless and comprehensive newsroom ecosystem, it’s easy to organize newsroom media assets, create and manage run-down playlists, and present news story play out from Tria News.
This system also uses well-established and proven MOS newsroom processes, providing reliable and worry-free live operations.
