The Rundfunk Berlin Brandenburg (rbb) initiated the building up of a new end-to-end file-based system architecture. This will introduce a considerable paradigm shift regarding rbb’s infrastructre. Over the coming months rbb’s Potsdam studios will be transformed by Qvest Media into one of the most modern TV production platforms in Germany, based on highly efficient workflows and broadcast IT systems.
Implementation of the new infrastructure will be divided into the areas of ingest, media asset management (MAM), production, outgest, editorial and network technology. For the technical realization of the project, we will implement, among others, a central MAM system for ensuring collaborative workflows and production processes across all functions. In a further stage of the contract, centralized ingest and outgest, central archiving and video and audio postproduction will be merged by system components into a closely interlinked, file-based infrastructure.
At the same time, rbb also counts on the know-how of Qvest Media regarding technical service and support. In the framework of a six-year service agreement, the service team of our Berlin office will take charge of ongoing services and maintenance management at the new production infrastructure of rbb with a portfolio of specially-tailored support services.
