Once again, VAV Engineering is awarded another file for the renovation of audiovisual production facilities for RTVE. In this sense, the digitization project of the Territorial Center of Castilla La Mancha (Toledo) will be addressed, as it is the only one that today remains with obsolete analog equipment. Within this digitization project, both the installation of new digital media in High definition for the production of programs and news is contemplated, as well as the adaptation to the new environment of the referred digital newsroom, which may dispense with the stages of system conversion analog to digital systems, and vice versa, on which it depends today. It will also be possible to dispense with these conversions in the contribution channels with Torrespaña and with other centers and informational units, as well as when the product is in HD, the conversion of the broadcast signal to HD will be dispensed with, this broadcast being in high native definition from its origin.
The project also contemplates the unification of the intake and technical control rooms, currently separated, in order to facilitate the work of the technicians, while homogenizing the center’s scheme with respect to other centers, where these rooms are single.
For the execution of the installation works, the non-interruption of the continuity disconnections of La 1 and the maintenance of the current capacities of the Information Services will be taken into consideration.
VAV Engineering has recently been awarded the contract for the installation of equipment and improvement of the facilities of the Monumental Theater, the place where the RTVE Orchestra and Choir perform most of its concerts and organize a multitude of musical events. Through this technological renovation, the theater will be provided with the necessary means to capture the various events that are organized in High Definition, having up to 15 camera positions (manual and robotic), thus enabling various scenographies in each assembly, according to the request for realization. For this purpose, the contribution system that RTVE has installed there will also be available, allowing the different signals to be sent to Prado del Rey from such a unique building, where a remote production of the event can be carried out.
Last July, VAV Engineering completed the installation of equipment and technological infrastructure in High Definition and delivered Studios 1 and 2 of the RTVE Production Center in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Among the tasks carried out, the renewal of the signal switching and multi-screen monitoring system should be highlighted, as well as the rest of the components of the referred studios (camera chains, video mixers, a text presentation system, synchronism generator, the infrastructure of audio, and video signals, …), thus achieving a complete native HD production from its origin.
To achieve these objectives in the tightest possible time, the VAV Engineering crew has performed a highly complex task, managing to reconcile the installation work with the normal performance of the activity in the center, thus obtaining recognition and satisfaction from this outstanding customer.
