RECORD ORDER RECEIVED BY ASTON

SPANISH state broadcaster Radio Television Espanola - TVE - have placed a landmark order for 57 Aston Motto dedicated character generators, to be delivered by the end of the year, the first time in the history of Aston that a single order has exceeded 50 units.
Aston's Spanish distributor, Meditel, secured the order in the face of competition from both dedicated and PC solutions, after the Madrid-based broadcaster initiated the evaluation process earlier this year.
Following on-site demonstrations of a number of competitive products, TVE ultimately chose Motto because of its popularity with the operators, who liked its easy user interface and advanced functionality. Motto also found favour with TVE's engineers, who have had positive experiences with the Astons already installed there. The 57 Mottos, which will be shipped before Christmas, are destined for installation around TVE's regional stations and within the large OB fleet.
Aston Sales Director Pete Munday said: “Aston Broadcast Systems are delighted to continue working with TVE. Motto is a great workhorse which delivers TVE the speed and reliability they need for daily live broadcasting. It's also an upgradeable platform which gives them the possibility of adding extra functionality as their requirements evolve.”
As a custom-designed broadcast tool, the Aston Motto character generator delivers benefits, which only a dedicated solution can provide. With quick access to commonly used functions, minimal boot time, eye-catching graphics and an upgrade path to greater functionality, it has a core set of features designed to guarantee great performance when cost is a key issue. UK based Aston Broadcast Systems specialise in the design and manufacture of dedicated broadcast graphics presentation and captioning products.
