Converter helps with social media, weather applications

NORWALK, CONN.—Cablevision News, News 12 Connecticut, a 24-hour local news channel serving southwestern Connecticut, recently deployed the Matrox Convert DVI Plus to convert a computer signal into a format that can easily be integrated into their daily production.

The channel recently began driving social media content to air and also started broadcasting remote weather cameras. Both initiatives require taking video from a PC and incorporating it into daily broadcasts.

“We developed a custom web application that lets us aggregate incoming social media content into a playlist,” said Studio Operations Manager Travis Machacek. “After a producer builds a playlist of comments and/or photos, he puts the playlist into ‘air’ mode, which formats the content into a particular look that is stylized to match our station’s graphical design. We use Matrox Convert DVI Plus to convert the DVI signal from the PC that is running the web application to an HD-SDI feed that can be broadcast through our production switcher in the control room.” read more...
