Japan’s TBS TV News Streaming Workflow Uses ATEM Switchers

PostThu Nov 21, 2019 6:09 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced that Japan’s TBS television broadcast station has built a news streaming workflow with Blackmagic’s ATEM 2 M/E Production Studio 4K, ATEM 1 M/E Production Studio 4Ks and ATEM 1 M/E Advanced Panels. This new facility is used for streaming daily news as well to provide extensive streaming news content covering Japan’s upcoming election campaign.

TBS, one of Japan’s top commercial broadcasters, has grown their streaming programming as the demand for providing up to the minute news to non TV devices like smartphones and computers, has grown. The channel now includes a YouTube channel for breaking news, a 24 hours news streaming channel for satellite broadcast and news streaming for social media such as twitter and Facebook. All of these will include content created with the Blackmagic Design ATEM switchers, which were installed at TBS’s main Tokyo locations.

Content Business Department, said: “We updated our streaming facility as part of a huge layout change for our news floor. When choosing the equipment for the new workflow, we decided to use switchers that could also be used for the upcoming election campaign special program, which happens once every few years. This is different from the past, where we used to build a temporal facility for only the special program. But it was very tiring to set up all the gear from scratch each time. So, we took this opportunity to upgrade our streaming equipment to be more versatile and permanent so that we could use it for the election campaign program.”
