TVSN is the Australian shopping channel (www.tvsn.com.au) and broadcasts to both Australian and New Zealand. Prior to a broadcast a producer will use the Bannister Lake custom application to select products that will be featured during that show. The software automatically pulls data from TVSN’s inventory database to provides not just product information such as prices, descriptions but also real-time data such as size and color availability based on current inventory levels.
The Overnight replay feature is a special customization provided by Bannister Lake which records a show’s graphics where during the day. Recorded is the graphic template displayed and the timecode it was displayed at. During ‘overnight’ hours TVSN replays shows recorded earlier in the day. These are clean recordings, meaning no graphics. The Bannister Lake software plays the templates automatically based on the recorded timecode, only the data of inventory levels and availability are updated and reflect the correct numbers.
