RTS Chooses StudioTalk For Video Of Radio Broadcasts

09/09/2019

CHE: As part of the modernisation of its radio studios, Radio Television Suisse (RTS) has selected Broadcasting Center Europe (BCE) assisted production solution StudioTalk to produce and broadcast its flagship programmes.

RTS is a public service audiovisual company, owned by the media group SSR (Swiss Broadcasting and Television Corporation), which offers programmes on four radio channels, two TV channels and numerous digital platforms.

“The RTS project uses all the strengths of StudioTalk, whether in production, channel branding, monitoring or distribution. Working hand in hand, we were able to make our solution evolve to meet their needs,” comments Olivier Waty, Workflows and Media Solutions Director at BCE.

StudioTalk, a solution developed by BCE, is a complete solution for live and non-live video production with the management of the editorial content of the shows, the channel branding and the sets as well as the broadcasting of the programmes on any platform.

“We needed to take a new step with ‘Forum’, and we were looking for a solution that could offer us all the tools we needed to make television from the same interface. StudioTalk was the answer,” said Stephan Mahrer, (pictured right) Responsable Mise En Image Des Productions Radio at RTS.

In order to enrich the user experience on the Internet and on social networks, it was important for RTS to shoot its most important radio programmes, namely ‘La matinale’ and ‘Forum’. Using StudioTalk, RTS creates real talkshows, broadcast these on their website, on social networks and especially on television.

“For StudioTalk users, it's very easy to find all the tools they need to do their production, whether it's Picture in Picture, enrichment or the management of the screens on the set. The user also has the option to switch to the automatic production mode to perform another task during a broadcast and then regain control in due course,” added Mahrer.

More than an advanced production solution, StudioTalk also allows the RTS to monitor its equipment via a real-time monitoring interface of all the elements of their workflow.

“In StudioTalk, we have access to a technical supervision that usually appears on more expensive systems. This allows us to have an overview of the services and monitor the operations. This will allow a person to perform complex support tasks even for a Level 1 intervention support, restarting one or another system to ensure its availability during live production,” explained Philippe Staehlin, (pictured left) Chef Secteur Systemes Broadcast at RTS.

BCE has also supported the RTS teams in the integration of their new studio. The solution has been customised to meet the customer's expectations. Working hand -in-hand, RTS and BCE made the solution evolve and to allow any employee, whether with a technical background or without, to use the solution easily.

“In this project, what was really important for us was the relationship with BCE, we found a real partner with whom we made our show and our tool evolve at the same time,” concluded Mahrer.
