MTV MEDIA Use Orad/Astucemedia Platform

Orad and Astucemedia, leading providers of broadcast graphics solutions and services, have announced that MTV MEDIA Finland is using the Orad/Astucemedia platform to integrate social media networks for the broadcaster’s new Social TV Channel – AVA.
Operating out of Helsinki, Finland, AVA leverages social media to create viewer-driven channel branding as promised in the tagline of the AVA channel: 'Let’s Create Together' (Luodaan yhdessä). The new Social TV broadcast workflow is facilitated by Orad 3Designer and Orad 3DPlay integrated with the Astucemedia Data Platform. MTV MEDIA uses Orad for graphics playout and Astucemedia Data Platform to manage data for channel bugs, headlines, uploaded pictures, tag lines, tweets, and likes with data from Twitter, Facebook, and other social media outlets, creating a viewer-driven channel branding.
"It was imperative for us that the end product has a dynamic, always updated, viewer-driven feeling, from the channel logo to pictures during commercial breaks, etc. The combination of Astucemedia Data Platform and Orad's 3DPlay and 3Designer made it possible," commented Tuomo Kulomaa, head of promotion at MTV MEDIA, a division of Bonnier AS.
AVA viewers participate in the channel's Social TV broadcast experience by submitting personal photos, Twitter updates, Facebook likes and posts in response to weekly themes, such as My Favorite Shoes, a Moment in a Dog’s Life, Baking Breads, and Home Decor. In addition to other “created together” contributions that enrich AVA’s live broadcasts and website, viewers can design and submit original logos, comment on TV shows, and share recipes and stories.
"In light of the paradigm shift from an analog to a digital media world, we decided to relaunch AVA as a 21st century channel that is shaped and influenced by content generated by the social media community," said Tuomo Kulomaa.
The AVA re-launch also features a fresh, contemporary graphics package—including channel bugs, live squeezes, promos, and branding and topic-of-the-week elements—and realtime, data-driven templates designed by Astucemedia’s creative services group. The extensive AVA channel rebranding required Astucemedia to seamlessly integrate its data platform with the existing Orad broadcast graphics infrastructure: Orad 3Designer design software, 3DPlay graphics playout controller, and HDVG HD/SD rendering engine, as well as Harris ADC-100 automation.
