TCS San Salvador upgrades from our previous system, Media, to .YES!, the latest SI Media software.
The migration lasted only a few days and was orchestrated by SI Media technicians Diego Reyes and Andres Fuentes. Now, TCS is operational and autonomous on the .YES! platform which is installed on Windows optimized for HTML5, using cuetones to manage the switch between live/studio and media files.
All seven channels broadcast by TCS were transitioned to components of the .YES! platform, including three backup systems, seven .YES!CG, five .YES!MAM working with five different cores and 14 .YES!Recorders installed on seven servers.
There are several advantages of the transition from Media to .YES!. With the new platform totally web-based, all operations are now done from a single browser window. The ability to do this involves considerable optimization of essential individual workflows. Where several machines were previously required, there is now only one from which operators can manage the entire schedule.
The challenge of having geographical distances between the two studios was not an issue for TCS. With .YES! the two locations communicate remotely faster with each other and without interruption.
Even the Quality Check is done faster with .YES!. Now users can use more modern conversion codecs that also accelerate QC operations. This results in a clear improvement in work performance. In addition, SI Media technicians were able to switch from Media to the .YES! platform using existing on premises hardware, thus allowing TCS to avoid many additional costs.
