CTV News Channel, CTV’s National 24/7 News Channel, required a refresh on their HD look to display News, Finance, Scores, Weather and Breaking News.

  • Chameleon ingests News, Finance, Scores and Weather data sources into its centralized database.
  • Operators edit content, rundowns and schedules for each zone. 
  • Breaking News Items are triggered automatically without operator intervention.
  • Imagine ADC automation triggers Chameleon Player layout (state) for Commercial Breaks and special segments.
  • To ensure output and on air reliability, Chameleon Player uses a combination of Timecode, GPI, Serial (Sercom) and IP triggers.
  • Automatic replication of Main and Backup Chameleon Servers are connected to mirrored XPression BlueBox systems for fail over and redundancy.
