Sony ELC Control Room Automation
Sony’s ELC-MVS01 (ELC), Enhanced Live Production Control Automation system, advances the state-of-the-art in automated news broadcasting. The ELC Automation system consists of a suite of software, computers, operation terminals and control panels optimized for the specific needs of a live broadcast environment.
By leveraging the program sequence information already contained in the station’s newsroom computer system (NRCS), Sony’s ELC Automation system is able to tightly choreograph the news production by controlling the production switcher, playback servers, electronic graphics, camera robotics, audio console and other devices. The result is increased efficiency and consistency of the broadcast look and feel.
