TV 2 sets up hub

Thursday, 08 April 2010

Norway's commercial broadcaster has deployed tech to create a single management hub for one-click publishing of digital content, regardless of its source or destination.

The same technology -'s Auto Dialog System, Interactivity Desk, and Dynamic Content Scheduler - is also enabling Norway's TV 2 viewers to use their mobile phones or laptops to make live, realtime contributions during sports talk shows and broadcasts.

"The easy-to-manage system greatly simplifies both our ability to move content around and our interactive offerings," said Hvard Myklebust, managing editor and head of acquisition, TV 2. "Having this single, unified system is a huge improvement to our efficiency, potentially saves us a huge amount of expense, and also enables us to spend more time doing our jobs well and less time developing broadcast software. The interactivity aspect is increasingly important to all our viewers, especially to the younger ones who want to be able to respond when something is said in the studio."

At TV 2, technology takes incoming feeds from as many sources as desired - internal content, websites, databases, or even SMS feeds - and aggregates them on a single web interface that is viewed by a technician. With one mouse click, the technician can then publish content to its destination, with the system automating every step of the process, including graphics interpolation and formatting.

The automated solution supports streamlined production and efficiency because it eliminates repetitive, tedious, and time-consuming hands-on manipulation of individual items - particularly onerous in fast-changing contexts like news and sports. The number of sources is theoretically limitless, while destination platforms could be the TV 2 website, a news crawl, an in-studio touchscreen wall, or social media.

In addition, the interactivity suite is flexible enough that TV 2 staff can easily change sources and destinations using key words. Currently, TV 2 is using the management hub only for sports broadcasts, but decision makers there anticipate the system's flexibility will be especially helpful when news producers start using the technology this summer to keep up with breaking stories.

Besides the behind-the-scenes use of technology for managing and routing content, TV 2 is using technology to enable viewers to use their mobile phones or Twitter to send comments that appear in near realtime on the in-studio touchscreen at a live sports talk show. During a recent Sunday night soccer match, for example, a viewer was able to follow up repeatedly with questions for commentators.

"TV 2 is leading the way with its phase-in of a comprehensive use of's technology," said Lars Lauritzsen, CEO. "This innovative, behind-the-scenes deployment points the way for broadcasters who want to streamline and enhance the efficiency of their operations by automating hands-on tasks. Simply put, to deliver cutting-edge services faster, and save cost in the process. The interactivity products increase the amount of information a broadcaster can monitor and disseminate, while simplifying its ability to utilise timely and effectively all the information on screen, on the web, and in mobile services."
