Freiburg - In March 2013 HMS started operations of a digital playout solution for German TV station TV Südbaden. The aim of this project was to simplify workflows and reduce required broadcast hardware.
TV Südbaden is broadcasting since early 2001, initially under the name FR TV. Planning and playout of its program will from now on be realized by the DiSA Broadcast Suite from HMS. The DVB-compliant ASI output of the playout server, including EPG and Teletext is directly passed to cable network operator Kabel BW.
In addition the DiSA Red Button Player is used to schedule commercial breaks in advance and start them at the push of a button. The DiSA Ingest module automatically ingests live shows so that these are available for later use.
TV Südbaden is a TV station located in southwest Germany. It is operated by Funkhaus Freiburg GmbH & Co. KG. The station broadcasts to over 220.000 households via Kabel BW.
