Aveco along with its customer Ramoji Group’s ETV Bharat in India, have been awarded the 2019 IBC Innovation Award in the Content Everywhere category. Aveco’s automation system drives 24 studios and 24 full time news channels in 13 languages for mobile news consumption.
The award was presented for the News App At Massive Scale to Pavel Potuzak, CEO, Aveco; Kulvinder Singh, VP sales South Asia, Aveco; and NM Mehra, vice president, technical, for system integrator VTI, who accepted the honor on behalf of Ramoji Rao, founder, ETV Bharat. The IBC awards ceremony was held Sunday, September 15 in Amsterdam Netherlands. It is the highest project honor of the global TV industry.
Launched recently, 2019, the ETV Bharat app provides the ability for users to drill down from national news to news from 29 Indian states and then to 725 districts across the country for hyper-local content.
With over 5000 mobile journalists (MoJo) trained and empowered with state-of-the-art mobile news reporting equipment, and with Aveco’s production control room (PCR) and master control room (MCR) automation managing the dynamic workflow for all 13 language versions, the efficiency of news production at ETV Bharat is exceptional.
“Winning this award is the pinnacle of achievement for Aveco. As an independent automation provider, having first been awarded the ETV Bharat automation project and then winning the IBC Content Everywhere Innovation Award, it is a great honor. We have shown that Aveco has the knowledge and resources to tackle the world’s largest automation projects successfully. I want to once again thank the honorable chairman of Ramoji Group, Ramoji Rao for placing his trust in Aveco. His vision of One Nation — One App has come true.”
