CHEK TV Invests In Snell Advanced Media's Vibe Solution

News Image
Canadian broadcaster CHEK TV has invested in Snell Advanced Media's (SAM) fast news production solution Vibe, which will allow it to deliver news to air and to social media platforms in seconds.

Vibe will help CHEK TV reach its aims of delivering news via the web and social media, as well as traditional broadcast.

It can capture any feed – regardless of format or aspect ratio – and incorporate it into a news package. The system also allows a single production team to handle all inputs, produce and deliver content to any platform in any format.

In addition, CHEK TV has invested in SAM's Go! multiplatform editor for HTML5 editing and social media publishing, allowing production staff to access Vibe content from any location using a browser.

Jason Sokoloski, Chief of Technology at CHEK TV, said: "It is very important to us as a broadcaster serving our community that viewers can access our news in a way that suits them – whether that's via a TV screen or a social network. As a small broadcaster we have limited resources, so it makes a huge difference to be able to deliver our content in new ways without having to add additional complexity or staff.

"The SAM workflow allows us to do everything we need, and more, and they worked closely with us to deliver a system that is right for us. Furthermore, SAM is the most forward thinking of the many solution providers that we researched."

Ed McGivern, VP, North American Sales at SAM, added: "Audiences now access news in an ever-growing number of ways and Vibe was developed to help broadcasters meet this demand without the need to add production staff to deal with online and social media platforms.

"Vibe also allows customers to handle user generated content and easily incorporate it into their news production. We're very excited to be working with CHEK TV on this project and helping them to deliver their content in new and innovative ways."
