For its scale and using for 24 hours, updating to new apparatus for broadcast cannot perform easily. Therefore efficient employment of present apparatus is needed. In this paper, we report the "CG Multi-Preview System" which compensate the ability to check contents fully have not been performed only by the conventional "CG File Server". By introduction of this system, we can preview from PC connected to LAN by conversion to TCP/IP-Network from Brunch4800-Network by "CG Gateway (E-GW)".
FPU operation for news-source transmission from the news-car requires quickly and certainty especially under emergency situation. 'Automatic FPU operating system' supports to find the certain position for transmits and adjusts an FPU antenna to proper direction automatically with quite simple operation. To get the absolute dirction of transmit antenna, we use the radio wave of Broadcasting Satellite(BS), which gives more certain direction than Magnetic sensor. With this system we can secure transmitting route quickly and easily than tranditional human-based systems.
In case of disaster, TV stations have important roles as providing details and useful information for a victim. In this paper we show a new quick information system for the Internet and terrestrial data broadcasting. Every kinds of information are provided to users through the terrestrial data broadcasting. A Smart Agent character appears on a desktop and tells users of information about disaster.
This year is the anniversary of 10 years at NHK-BS. So we carried out live broadcast of long playing from Kashgar, Turpan and Dunhuang(SILKROAD) of the town in west of China, as the special program for the first time.
At Nankai Broadcasting the conventional CM-Bank system using a serial 1 inch helical VTR tape on which recording CM materials for a day has run for long time. Since our system enters upon renewal time lately and the digital technology is improving rapidly, we have to consider the new CM-Bank system corresponding to the next digital broadcasting service in stead of a previous system. To achieve the high efficiency on business and increase the reliability of operation, we suggest the mother direct On-Air style CM-Bank system using HDD by MPEG-2. This report describes the outline of our new system.
A new system on "the Robot Camera" is proposed. A Robot camera is remote-controlled by the operating unit at the control room of the TV station through the telephone lines. It is well known that we can easily get the outside view by using robot cameras on TV. The new system can make it possible to remorize and reproduce the same camera-works as it once had before, by recording the data between the robot camera and the remotely operating unit.
