CZECH TV, the national state broadcaster for the Czech Republic, has over 170 hours of incoming media arriving each day mainly as MXF files, with XDCAM for HD and IMX for SD. To help process this high volume of content they needed an automated quality control system.
In mid-2013 Czech TV issued an open tender for a QC system. Tektronix responded through their local reseller Traco Systems, offering an Aurora QC Solution consisting of Aurora Professional QC software with Hydra Player.
In October 2013, after an extensive evaluation, Czech TV purchased Aurora to be its QC platform. The Aurora system had proven itself to have the capability and performance that Czech TV required, Tektronix had demonstrated its ability to listen to their needs and provide a responsive service, and the commercial offer met the Czech TV budgetary requirements.
In November 2013 Czech TV went live with the Aurora QC system. Their future plans include implementing the popular Aurora integration with Telestream Vantage.
What the customer says
“Through extensive trials we have built confidence that Aurora QC provides us with the QC tests plans, the scalability, and the performance we need to manage our large volume of incoming media files," says Pavel Přibil, Systems Integration Engineer at Czech TV.
What the reseller says
“Traco Systems and Tektronix worked in partnership to provide a responsive service to meet our client’s needs, including high quality technical and commercial support throughout," says Michal Popela, Sales Director at Traco Systems (a local Tektronix reseller).
What Tektronix says
“We’re delighted that Czech TV has purchased an Aurora QC Solution, enabling them to plan, analyze, review and take actions more efficiently and accurately on their 170 hours of incoming media each day,” says Eben Jenkins, Global Sales, Video Product Line, Tektronix.
