Today's challenge for broadcasters is to deliver more content in more cost-effective ways. The
broadcasting space has become extremely competitive with new HD/SD services being launched
on a daily basis. With the influx of mobile devices (such as tablets) in the consumer space,
broadcasters are now required to provide services for these new platforms. The key to success is finding ways to add more HD/SD playout
services without substantially increasing capital and operating costs.
With the convergence of broadcast and IT-based technologies, integrated playout is becoming an attractive solution for broadcasters. This
concept integrates a traditional broadcast chain that includes multiple discrete devices, into a singular piece of IT-based hardware. These
systems can also easily integrate with Media Asset Management (MAM) and automation systems. The result is a scalable, feature-rich and
cost-effective solution for both baseband and file based playout. These solutions occupy less rack space and have lower power, cable, and
cooling requirements which equate to long term savings.
Overview
OvertureRT LIVE is a cost-effective playout engine with integrated
master control and advanced channel branding/graphics features.
OvertureRT LIVE is ideal for applications that span from single
channel “.2” applications all the way up to large multi-channel
playout facilities. In addition, OvertureRT LIVE can be used for
regional opt-out, edge playout and disaster recovery (DR)
applications.
To deliver superior reliability in 24/7 applications, OvertureRT LIVE
has been developed in a completely Linux based OS. OvertureRT
LIVE also has an internal multi-port video server running CPU based
software codecs for superior flexibility. In the 1RU version of the
OvertureRT LIVE, 1.5TB (RAID1) of local edge storage is provided.
Applications requiring additional storage can upgrade to the 3RU
version of OvertureRT LIVE which has a standard 6TB (RAID6) of local
storage.
OvertureRT LIVE offers the ability to seamlessly play out a mixture of
SD and HD content by utilizing internal up/down/cross conversion
engines. OvertureRT LIVE provides a mixture of template driven
branding and character generation capabilities that allow users to
create dynamic lower-third promos, weather alerts, and “Coming Up
Next” graphics, amongst others.
For physical I/O, OvertureRT LIVE uses an Evertz developed PCI
interface card to offer a unique mix of HW and SW processing,
unmatched I/O flexibility and cost savings.
OvertureRT LIVE offers a video and audio mixer that allows users to
transition between multiple live HD/SD inputs and the internal video
server playout engine. OvertureRT Live also supports advanced
audio processing options like IntelliGain (+IG) loudness
management for CALM Act compliance, stereo to 5.1 up-mixing
(+UMX) and stereo to 5.1 down-mixing (+DMX). VANC data
processing options also include AFD stamping and
captions/subtitling insertion.

Applications
OvertureRT LIVE can easily integrate with existing infrastructure to
provide additional HD/SD playout services. Further efficiencies can
be achieved when OvertureRT LIVE is used in conjunction with
advanced Media Asset Management (MAM) or automation systems
such as the Evertz Mediator and Playtime product offerings.
Launch New HD/SD Channels
OvertureRT LIVE allows broadcasters to launch new HD/SD services
faster to start generating revenue sooner. The cost-effectiveness of
OvertureRT LIVE also allows broadcasters to minimize capital
expenditures required to launch these services.
Launch New Secondary (or Dot) Channels
In some markets, broadcasters have available bandwidth within
their designated spectrum. OvertureRT LIVE allows broadcasters to
add these “.2” services quickly and cost-effectively. These channels
can be informational channels that include weather, traffic, and
news.
Time-delayed Channels
When combined with Mediator, OvertureRT LIVE allows
broadcasters to launch time-delayed/time-shifted channels. These
channels allow broadcasters to handle multiple time zones more
efficiently.
Regional Opt Outs/Commercial Insert
Some broadcasters have a network/affiliate architecture where the
network feed is sent to many local regions. To optimize revenue and
grow market share, broadcasters often insert local content within
each region. OvertureRT LIVE’s internal video server, advanced
graphics capabilities, and live input switching capabilities enable
simple integration of local content.
Short-term Channels
The flexibility of OvertureRT LIVE allows broadcasters to launch
short-term or temporary channels for special events (e.g. sport
channels for a particular season). Due to the limited time these
channels are on-air, OvertureRT LIVE is a cost-effective alternative to
using a costly traditional broadcast chain.
Disaster Recovery
The objective of a disaster recovery site is to allow broadcasters to
continue to provide HD/SD services without interruption in cases of
emergencies or disasters. Typically, these facilities are an extremely
scaled down version of the main broadcast path. OvertureRT LIVE,
with its branding and playout capabilities, allows broadcasters to
continue to broadcast their content without compromising the “look
and feel” of the main channel in emergency cases.
Overture Template Design Studio
Evertz’ Overture Template Design Studio is a powerful integration
environment in which diverse types of graphical elements and
dynamic data sources can be combined to generate complex
branding and advanced graphical templates. The Overture Template
Design Studio supports multiple file formats including .mov, .bmp,
.jpg, .tga, and .tiff files, etc. Diverse data sources are also supported
including simple parsing of .txt, .xml, and .csv files in addition to
advanced processing of RSS feeds and EAS alerts.
The Overture Template Design Studio has an embedded animation
timeline which gives template designers full control over crucial
object parameters such as object position, size, orientation, opacity,
font, colour and alignment. Full rendering capabilities are included
in the Overture Template Design Studio so that the final look and feel
of the template can be visualized on a frame by frame basis prior to
posting the template to the actual play-out device.

Template Driven Graphics
Advanced and complex graphics presentation is becoming an
increasingly crucial part of program delivery. At the same time, the
number of sources from which data and information needs to be
gathered continues to grow. To manage this increasing complexity
and the costs associated with graphics creation, a practical option is
to adopt a graphical template-based work-flow.
With template driven graphics, critical and dynamically changing
elements can be specifically designed into a single graphical
template and then pushed out to the relevant playout devices. With
these dynamic elements, last minute and even on-air template
updates can be easily accomplished.
OvertureRT LIVE’s Graphical Templates Enable:
• Increased flexibility to handle last minute graphical updates
• Superior ability to present real time information in
dynamic and changing enviroments
• Centralized graphics creation for cost management
• Increased focus on a lower number of higher quality graphics
• Consistent graphical look and feel across different stations
• Consistent graphical look and feel across the programming day
• Simple and automated “Coming Up” and “Cross Channel”
promotions, amongst others
Evertz’ Overture Template Design Studio facilitates the process of
template design and template management.

Playtime: End-to-End Multi-Channel Playout & Automation System
Evertz’ Playtime allows broadcasters and service providers to
cost-effectively use a turn-key solution to deliver new HD/SD
services while making the transition from a tape-based facility to a
file-based facility. Playtime is a complete file-based playout solution
that integrates ingest, storage, and OvertureRT LIVE playout with
automation. Playtime utilizes Evertz’ ingest clients and SuperNAS to
capture and centrally store content for use across multiple playout
channels. The Evertz ingest clients allow for multiple ingests to occur
whether it be from HD/SD sources or files. The ingest clients provide
confidence and jog/shuttle playback outputs that can be used for
quality control. Content in the system can be stored centrally but
also cached to edge playout devices like OvertureRT LIVE. The Evertz
SuperNAS provides a highly reliable central storage system that can
scale seamlessly from terabytes to petabytes and can have multiple
tiers under one system. The playout and branding of content is
handled by OvertureRT LIVE.
