ATV expands playout and editing capabilities with Cinegy


Turkuvaz Media Group has expanded its use of Cinegy solutions in order to increase its playout and editing capabilities for selected channels. The broadcaster has recently constructed new offices and an operation centre in Istanbul to serve nine TV and four radio channels. Integration, training and support for the project was supplied by local Cinegy partner, Orsatek Bilisim.

Cinegy has been instrumental in the digital production workflows within the Turkuvaz Media Group since 2011, with the first phase at that time including a transition from SD to HD for selected channels. The group is one of the biggest distribution companies in Turkey and is a leading institution and brand within the television sector in the country, providing channels such as ATV, which is one of Turkey’s most prominent and acclaimed television networks along with ATV Europe, MinikA and AHaber.

The new space includes 17 studios with a combined floor space of 9,000m2, designed to be able to serve different usage purposes. Twelve of these are 12m tall and range in size between 200m2 and 1500m2. Five are 6m tall and have between 100m2 and 350m2 floorspace. These studios will be controlled by six Program Control Rooms with 4K infrastructure and four PCR with HD infrastructure. There are also nine Master Control Rooms with 4K infrastructure and equipment.

Cinegy software is used for every stage in the production workflow; Capture, Archive, Monitoring and Editing, including Playout. Footage arrives in various formats and is then transferred to the digital archive where teams can access content and collaborate on multiple tasks from different locations. All rights are managed within the Cinegy system to ensure the content is secure. Dependent on access levels, users can then access the clips and metadata in the digital archive allowing material to be used over and over again without any reduction in quality. Changes to material can also be made directly from the users’ desks, saving time and expense. The digital archive allows collaboration between ATV’s offices in İstanbul and Ankara, removing the time lags, costs and inconvenience caused by the physical distance when using tape-based workflows.

ATV has been broadcasting in HD since 25 April 2011 and undertook several major Cinegy expansions since that time. Turkuvaz currently owns Cinegy Archive with redundancy, 55 Cinegy Air PRO bundles, several Cinegy Converts with 24 agents in total, 45 Cinegy Captures and 380 Cinegy Desktops for editing.
