Petersburg - Channel Five broadcasting company

News production facility – hardware and software

Petersburg – Channel Five is a federal channel, successor to the oldest channel in the former Soviet Union, Leningrad Television. Today the channel broadcasts informative, discussion and analysis, general entertainment programmes and shows, documentaries and feature films and series.

In 2012, specialists from OKNO-TV built a modern news production facility based on the latest news platforms for Petersburg - Channel Five.

The facility makes it possible to produce and broadcast daily news programmes, to archive and maintain a database of news stories.

The new complex comprises a hard and software news production facility, two independent studios with unified technical apparatus, 20 NLE workstations for journalists and archiving purposes.

The broadcasting part of the facility is built on a fully redundant philosophy – all key equipment has a mirrored backup unit working as a hot switchover in case of failure.
