SEEART V2.0

The real-time video production enables seamless integration with the NRCS to fully automate loading of program content and templates, automated rundowns generation, and real-time rundowns modification. It requires minimal human operation through simple keyboard controls (or a page turning pen) that trigger coordinated actions across multiple systems and devices. This improves program presentation, work efficiency, and device utilization. It reduces errors and relieves personnel workload pressure from multi-operator coordination, while also lowering labor costs.

Real-time video production seamlessly integrates with the NRCS to fully automate the loading of program content and templates, generate rundowns automatically, and modify rundowns in real-time. It minimizes human intervention through simple keyboard controls (or a page-turning pen) that trigger coordinated actions across multiple systems and devices. This enhances program presentation, work efficiency, and device utilization while reducing errors and alleviating workload pressure from multi-operator coordination. Additionally, it helps lower operational costs.


The system consists of an automated equipment control system (control flow) and a studio content management system (content flow, template flow). It utilizes program templates for efficient automated device control based on the program rundowns. The super director can simply use spacebar keyboard or a page-turning pen to achieve full automation of the studio production, with one person handling recording or quasi-live broadcasting, and two people managing new media live production.

 2. The vision mixer is the main device for signal synthesis, mainly connected and controlled in two ways: network or RS422 serial port. First, the vision mixer supports open external control protocols, and then controls the cross points, keys, auxiliary channels and other functions of different manufacturers' vision mixers. In actual use, the first level ME is mainly responsible for signal switching and subtitle raising, and other MEs are responsible for dispatching open window signals to packaging equipment.

3. The digital mixer is connected and controlled in two ways: network or MIDI. It supports volume control of each audio channel, etc.

4. The video server is connected and controlled in two ways: network or RS422 serial port. Different manufacturers use different control protocols. Non-linear editing network completes the video editing through the reviewing process, migrates the video files to the video server to complete MD5 verification, and then passes the program ID to the Script Rundown Sheet to generate the video server Running Order. The control system controls the Running Order in sequence to trigger the video server to work.  

5. Trigger and control open protocol-based CG graphic system equipment over the network to automatically load content and CG graphic templates, trigger playback at the scheduled time, and realize automated production in the broadcast control room.

6. Trigger and control open protocol-based VA/AR graphic system equipment over the network to automatically load content and VA/AR templates, trigger playback at the scheduled time, and realize automated production in the broadcast control room.

7. Trigger and control open protocol-based video wall graphic system equipment over the network to automatically load content and video wall graphic templates, trigger playback at the scheduled time, and realize automated production in the broadcast control room.

8. The signal scheduling matrix is mainly connected and controlled in two ways: network or RS422 serial port. The matrix requires an open control protocol. It is mainly used for preparing the input signal source of the vision mixer and dispatching the windowing signal of the graphics. 

9. The robotic camera system control is through the network protocol to control the robotic pan/tilt head or camera installed on the robotic crane, the X, Y, Z motion of the crane, pan/tilt head, and the zoom, focus, and aperture motion of the all-servo lens, and can run the preset positions of the robotic camera system, linear motion between points and curve motion between multiple points.

10. The digital dimming system is connected and controlled via network or MIDI.  It adopts the standard MIDI SHOW CONTROL protocol and can trigger the macro commands, group commands and single lamp commands of the dimming console.

11. The audio server is triggered and controlled through the network for the audio server to play audio files and realize automated production in the broadcast control room.

12. The audio software control panel automatically maps the fader heights currently used in program production to the desktop control panel to realize real-time mixing. Equipped with a network software control panel.

13. The clock display system of the broadcast control room provides the director, editor-in-chief and host with program positive timing, program countdown, camera entry time, video clip playback countdown and other clock information to facilitate program directory production in the broadcast control room.

14. Control peripheral devices through protocols, monitor the working status and complete function settings of peripheral devices.

The studio content management system contains modules for external NRCS content access, NRCS, automated rundown generation integrating content, templates and device control, intelligent rundown modification, automated prompters, etc.

The studio automation system adopts a BS architecture and can integrate with any newsroom computer system (NRCS). The automated playlist production system can set up arrangements for various program process templates and equipment control process templates to ensure that automation can be set for each program content. It supports manuscript processes and standard manuscript processes to generate news linkage lists suitable for video news, radio and columns. The video review process supports the video item review process through H5 pages to complete the content migration from the production network to the broadcast server and control the broadcast through the program code. The automated teleprompter system connects the content management system to achieve automatic content access. During the director's playback control, the host's oral broadcast content in the news linkage list is automatically pushed to the teleprompter.
