TV 2 East builds busy news empire on automation foundation
TV 2 East needed to upgrade its production platform to handle five hours a day of news programming for its TV 2 main channel while fueling a 24 hour a day related regional news network. The service one of eight regional networks airing in Denmark, started with the Ross Overdrive production automation platform and layered in Xpression graphics with virtual set and Furio robotic camera system.
One of eight regional networks serving Denmark, TV 2 East needed a way to produce lots of news with as few people as possible. The service produces five hours a day of programming for its mother channel, TV 2, and also produces a 24-hour regional network serving parts of Denmark, Sweden and northernmost Germany.
Management built its production platform around the Ross Overdrive production automation platform, adding Xpression graphics engines, a virtual set and robotic Furio robotics camara system.
“The platform is cheap, flexible and easy to use for the staff,” said Vagn Petersen, CEO.
Here are highlights of how TV 2 East produces, including an unusual reflective anchor desk at the heart of a virtual set.
