«ZIK media complex integrates remote productions, the workflow is equipped with contemporary IP-solutions"
Challenge: Constructive Limitations in a Historical Building
"Design and installation in the heritage asset once again required out of the box thinking," noted Yuri Brushko, the Head of VisionHOUSE Project Design Department. "The Oktiabrsky Palace walls or ceilings contstruction could not be changed, which added challenges to deploying cable channels. It was more than uneasy to keep the exterior, main construction, communicaitons unchanged».
Another challenge was to integrate remote studios and control rooms in distant cities.
«We are happy with the result: ZIK works as a single media complex, the overall workflow is organized with cutting edge IP-solutions. Remote locations (in Kiev and Lviv) are seamlessly integrated, directly interating through all points of channel presence. The media complex takes our TV channel to the next level of contemporary media production. The newsroom from the global leader accelerates our news production», said Vadim Zak, Deputy General Director of ZIK mediaholding.
