Automation specialist Aveco celebrated its involvement in a project that won the Innovation, Content Everywhere category at the IBC2019 Awards on Sunday.
The award went to Hyderabad-based Ramoji Group’s ETV Bharat and its new app, which was launched in March using Aveco’s news automation solutions for all 24 of ETV’s OTT news channels.
Using Aveco’s ingest, production control room and master control room platforms – in conjunction with an Octopus newsroom computer system – the ETV Bharat App provides the ability to ‘drill down’ from national news to news from 29 Indian states and then to 725 districts around the country.
With 24 news studios and 5000 journalists feeding into the content creation process, the ETV Bharat App serves as a gateway for material across 13 languages, namely: Hindi, Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Oriya, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu, Urdu and English.
Reflecting on the award, Kulvinder Singh, vice president sales of Aveco, said that the company is “absolutely delighted” by the honour. He added: “It’s a wonderful recognition of our achievement and the fact that it has been appreciated. The whole team is very excited by the award.”
