The Shopping Channel, Canada’s premiere broadcast retail Channel based in Mississauga Ontario worked with Bannister Lake to develop an automated broadcast graphics solution for their broadcast workflow.

  • Bannister Lake Macro Application reads the product inventory database to generate graphics for each one-hour segment.
  • Name Keys, Colors, Sizes, Star Rating and product availability is also generated with each segment.
  • Operators can manually intervene to edit or modify segments and Text content while on air.
  • Recap stills of each segment are captured by the Still Store, then saved to IPV for archive and proof of play.
  • A log file is generated for each take item with Time Stamp, Item number and Product Description
  • The log is encoded into the clean feed for Digital and Web applications.
  • This configuration is mirrored in the Main and Backup Control Rooms for redundancy.
