July 27, 2016
Ice hockey and football are national pastimes in Finland. Every day, Europe’s best ice hockey and soccer players take to the ice and field, and every day Tuotantotalo Werne (Production House Werne) is there to broadcast all the action to Fins at home and across the Baltic. Located in Helsinki, Finland, Werne services two of the leading media groups in the Nordic region – ViaSat Sport Finland and Sanoma Media – with ingest, media management, logging, editing, archiving, material services and playout for the Finnish national ice hockey league, professional football(soccer) games, and various other programs.
A Primestream client since 2009, Werne started small with ingesting, material services, and archiving for Finnish national hockey league games and soccer for leagues throughout the Europe. As technology evolved from standard definition to high definition, new distribution outlets opened up, and clients requested additional and more complex services, Werne added two 24/7 FORK Master Control Playout channels, DAC storage for archiving and a Chyron Hego Graphics system. On the production side, Werne upgraded to the latest version of FORK, adding Logger and Live Assist. For outside access to Werne’s Media Asset Management database and archive, Werne added Xchange Suite, offering automation control for restoring content from the archive and requesting the high-resolution source material.
