rbb install Voice controlled Prompting into Advanced New Crossmedia News Centre
Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg (rbb), a national broadcaster for the German states of Berlin and Brandenburg has installed advanced voice-controlled teleprompting solutions from GTC Sponsor, Autoscript in an innovative new studio. Located in Berlin, at the state-of-the-art Crossmedia News Centre (CNC), the latest project has built in automation to minimise the number of control staff required in case of breaking news.
‘Voice’ is a revolutionary new addition to WinPlus-IP, Autoscript’s industry-leading fully IP-enabled prompting software solution. Designed for the next generation of live television production, Voice actively monitors the production audio feed to automatically advance the script as the words are spoken. Real time speech recognition combined with proprietary algorithms and advanced pattern matching ensures that the script always scrolls in perfect synchronisation with the presenter.
Munich-based Progl+Gerlach provided consultation to rbb on the requirements for a voice controlled prompter system.
Oliver Gerlach, partner - Progl+Gerlach says:
We installed a plug’n’play demo system at the rbb for their presenters to trial in offline test broadcasts over several weeks. After successful testing by the presenters and the studio technicians, we supported the install of the system and integration into the CNC. The system is now used in live daily programming with our continued technical support.
rbb is the first broadcaster in Germany to incorporate advanced Voice prompting into its programming. The system is used to produce ‘rbb24’, a regional news programme that airs three times daily on weekdays.
Autoscript’s full Intelligent Prompting range including EPIC-IP and EVO-IP prompt monitors will be on display at IBC2022 at the Videndum Production Solutions stand, 11.C40.
