ASTRA Studio, Aveco’s award-winning news studio production automation system, offers a great deal of flexibility in producing and broadcasting live news and sports. It does not restrict or dictate the workflow. Users can start with minimal features and grow into ASTRA Studio’s full capabilities or jump right in and take full advantage to reduce costs and improve quality. The ability to work in existing infrastructures with existing equipment and applications makes for a lower initial investment than competing solutions. Aveco has the industry’s largest library of interfaces and implemented APIs in production, graphics, playout and MAM. Aveco lets you decide your workflow and equipment.
ASTRA MCR, the industry’s most advanced master control system, provides for on-premises, in the cloud and hybrid operations. Aveco’s ASTRA MCR playout automation has a 30+ year reputation for reliability, dependability, consistent innovation, 24/7/365 operation and support.

There are special automation tools for News channels, Sports channels, Music channels, Movie channels, Government/Legislative channels, pop-up channels.
Located across the aisle from Harmonic’s booth (W2801), Aveco and Harmonic will be demonstrating how their Aveco’s ASTRA Master Control Room (MCR) solution seamlessly integrates with Harmonic’s VOS360 dedicated end-to-end video cloud Solution platform.

GEMINI MAM is an open system for integration with third-party media processing devices, third-party systems and appliances.
