Sony ELC-MVS01 Overview

The Sony ELCMVS01 Live Production Control Software Package is designed for use in automated news broadcasting. The system consists of a suite of software, computers, operation terminals, and control panels that are optimized for the specific needs of a live broadcast environment. By leveraging the program sequence information already contained in the station’s NRCS (Newsroom Computer System), the 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.

Sony and third-party hardware and the newsroom devices are integrated to provide event-based control of newsroom devices including camera robotics, transports, audio, switching, effects, and graphics
An NRCS centric operational philosophy allows events to be created, scheduled, and edited via a NRCS rundown Active-X plug-in interface
Convenient drag-and-drop operation for event scheduling and cue editing are provided via 2 user-selectable views: Quick Cue and Cue Edit
The Quick Cue view allows convenient drag-and-drop placements of existing cues
Cues containing multiple calls can be directly dragged and dropped into the NRCS rundown, and executed upon take of the event
The Cue Edit view can be used to create and edit cues
Cues can be created from scratch, or from templates
Playlist Viewer is available from the NRCS plug-in interface for confirming the Playlist sequence
Resource management features based on known limitations of the system components such as camera shot conflict alarm, play-out channel conflict alarm, and switcher resource management are intended to warn operators of potential impending event conflicts
To secure on-air operations, a single On-Air Playlist interface is available for taking cues and monitoring the playlist events during the live production
The MKS-8033A Shot Box is used to advance the playlist and provide programmable presets from a combination of the newsroom controlled devices
Deliberately break away from the playlist for breaking news or other live situations, and return to the playlist seamlessly at any time
The system can be configured with main and backup servers, each running identical ELC applications and a mirrored database
ELC Play-list Viewer Application (5 floating user licenses) for independent application for viewing play-lists
Icon Manager Utility for associating frequently used device settings as cue icons
ELC On-Air Utility for on-air play-list control and management interface
Initial Setup Utility, a first-time installation and system configuration utility
System Setup Utility, a set-up utility for system integration
ELC Plug-in Application (5 floating user licenses), a NRCS client plug-in application for assigning cues to a rundown (Quick Cue) and modifying existing cues (Cue Edit)
