4K Cloud Workflow From TVU Networks Enables Broadcast Of Spain’s Almagro Classical Theater Festival For RTVE
TVU Networks announced that Spanish national public broadcaster Radiotelevisión Española (RTVE) relied on its cloud-based 4K and 5G solutions for live productions at the Almagro Classical Theater Festival.
RTVE deployed the TVU One mobile transmitter, TVU Producer live video production platform, and TVU Anywhere mobile app for an evening broadcast of Ficción Sonora (Sound Fiction) performed by colleagues from Radio Nacional de España at the Corral de Comedias in Almagro, using an eight-input HD mix configuration, with one input in TVU Producer used to capture stereo audio.
In addition, the team produced a 30-minute, magazine-style program in 4K, capturing the festival atmosphere in Almagro with interviews in different locations around town, including from the Corral.
For the afternoon, magazine-style show RTVE used TVU Producer configured in a 4K cloud workflow, with a PTZ camera in the town hall and three smartphones in locations around Almagro. The production team utilized the TVU Partyline real-time cloud collaboration solution as an IFB channel with crew in the technical area and for communication between the show presenter and contributing journalists.
The afternoon show was distributed on RTVEplay plus RTVE Castilla La Mancha’s Twitter. The Ficción Sonora, part of the 45th International Classical Theater Festival, was broadcast live on RTVE’s free-to-air Canal 24 Horas.
“It is important to know the operational possibilities that 4K cloud production will offer in order to define future use cases,” said Pere Vila, RTVE Director of Technology Strategy and Digital Innovation. “Through our first-hand experience, we witness the possibilities it brings to live entertainment and sports events. We are thankful for the support we received from TVU Networks. TVU solutions offer great stability, allowing us to work with confidence and security. But for us the best thing about TVU is their team, who have always supported and collaborated with us, listening, and turning our wishes into reality.”
“RTVE is a leading player in Europe for advancing new technology,” said Rafael Castillo, General Manager/Vice President, EMEA and Latin America, TVU Networks. “The team deployed TVU Networks solutions for a 4K cloud-produced live half-hour show in a highly innovative set up. The configuration used in Almagro will be one that’s easy to reproduce and will prove beneficial to RTVE in the future.”
