Swiss broadcaster TSR covers Olympics with VertigoXmedia's Producer Xmedia Suite

Télévision Suisse Romande (TSR), based in Geneva, Switzerland, is building on its successful Euro 2004 coverage with plans to use VertigoXmedia's Producer Xmedia Suite of advanced graphics automation products during this month's Summer Olympic games in Athens, Greece.
TSR, part of the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation, is quickly and easily creating a new, real-time 3D graphics production using the template-based authoring and playlist tools in the Producer Xmedia Suite.
By editing its existing templates, TSR can quickly change colours, fonts, graphics, and page layouts while maintaining the high-quality on-air look achieved during the company's Euro 2004 coverage. Even though the two events are only six weeks apart, the transition is going smoothly.
"Our VertigoXmedia solution proved itself quickly, and we are very excited about how easily we are adapting this technology for our Olympic coverage," explained Guy Dessaux, Director of Multimedia Projects at TSR. "Our operators will be doing the same thing they did for Euro 2004, but the results will have a new look and feel because they'll be using a new set of templates designed specifically for this event."
