Aveco Content Management and Automation Tools
ASTRA Suite of Tools provides broadcasters with cost-effective solutions for content management, master control and news/live playout automation, studio automation, ingest and archive. ASTRA applications run on a robust, virus-free platform and specialize in multisite operations with desktop and web-based tools for proxy viewing, monitoring and control. ASTRA is on-air at over 275 locations worldwide with solutions from single channel playout systems to very large fully redundant systems and specializes in centralcasting, disaster recover sites, and regional ad insertion applications.
ASTRA CMS is the core of ASTRA and provides a comprehensive content management system. It can offer a common interface for archive, production, news and master control departments by synching these databases into the ASTRA database. Rules-based file transfers automatically moves material from any of these systems to the right location either within a facility or to remote locations with or without transcoding.
ASTRA MCR provides frame accurate playout for master control with interfaces to most all popular traffic systems. By controlling new and legacy devices, ASTRA offers a clean migration from analog to digital-based workflows. With Astra MCR, one operator can easily manage a large group of channels.
ASTRA News is similar to Astra MCR but includes MOS links to all popular NRCS systems and is specially designed to handle live events or events that cannot be accurately pre-programmed. Astra News enables flawless newscasts and other live broadcasts with minimal resources.
ASTRA Studio 2 is Aveco's second generation of studio automation, ASTRA Studio 2 enables a single operator to produce complex live newscasts and news programs. Studio 2 is hardware independent, working with various vendors' studio equipment, allowing users to pick the switcher, graphics, and other equipment that works right for them. New journalist tools and MOS integration with most NRCS systems enable journalists to quickly take advantage of these new capabilities without needing to understand the underlying technology.
ASTRA Ingest automatically or manually ingests content from live feeds, videotape, or files. Based on an off-line generated list from traffic or NRCS, content is recorded and registered into the ASTRA CMS database. Metadata can be automatically generated, loaded from traffic or NRCS systems, imported from external sources such as news agencies, or added manually.
ASTRA Architecture enables various software components to be integrated into one seamless solution. Its flexible architecture starts with systems designed with basic redundancy and grows to systems that use an N+1 design, a fully redundant design, or a design with the specific level of protection required.
