CCTV Expands Aperi Deployment to Enhance Remote Production

China’s state television broadcaster, China Central Television (CCTV) has expanded its implementation of the media virtualisation functionality of Aperi’s IP-based live media processing platform. Building on a successful deployment over the past year, CCTV decided to grow the platform globally, equipping its foreign locations with Aperi technologies so it can produce and distribute programming in a much more flexible way.

A broadcaster that outputs more than 50 channels of programming, CCTV has been using the Aperi platform to deliver high bandwidth, low-latency 4K, 3G-HD and SD media. More than 120 bi-directional links were installed to easily share this content between CCTV’s current and former headquarters in Beijing, some 15km apart.

Now rolling it out to connect multiple global locations, CCTV is using the Aperi platform for the remote production of its programming. By deploying this software-centric approach, it’s able to be much more agile in its production processes and quickly adapt to changing market conditions and live event requirements, as needed. And it will be able to do all of this while benefitting from better control over cost and quality.
