News production facility – hardware and software
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.
