The multi-cultural European channel, ARTE G.E.I.E., broadcasting programs 24×7 to France, Germany and the rest of Europe chooses BCE as the general contractor for the installation of their complete tapeless HD workflow.
The project consists of the migration to HD of the existing news and production studios, 20 editing suites and the playout including 2 control rooms with a multilingual Dolby surround system and a HD/SD simulcast.
BCE will also create a fully tapeless workflow between all the departments of ARTE, ensuring the complete compatibility of the contents between all entities. The workflow will also be able to release content for multimedia platforms, such as Internet websites, and be flexible to new media integration.
Finally, BCE will also install a Media Asset Management in order to optimize the work for the production area.
