OSS Tools for Television Broadcasting

Date :
Time: 17:30 - 17:50
Location: Foyer

One of the principles in decision making is to use free and open source software where it is possible. I want to give a short overview about the available tools, how we use them and how we plan to extend them. The Focus will be on melted, an open source playout server ready for broadcasting, Drupal, the web platform we use for collecting and distributing Videos through the Web, and Caspar CG, an open source Character Generator built by the Swedish Public TV.
