Insys Video Technologies Powering Austrian Parliament TV

The Austrian Parliament has worked with the ORS (Österreichische Rundfunksender GmbH & Co KG) and Insys Video Technologies (VT) to launch an OTT platform for parliamentary sessions.

 The platform, built using Insys Cloud Video Recorder, is running on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and is integrated with a number of AWS Media Services.

Having been selected to implement a cloud solution for the Austrian Parliament, ORS worked with Insys VT to adopt the Insys Cloud Video Recorder.

Interested citizens are able to follow live video streams across several channels for parliamentary sessions, live events, press conferences, and committees. Insys Cloud Video Recorder also records these live streams and automatically stores them in Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). These recordings can be easily downloaded, as well as streamed on-demand via the web player.

Insys Cloud Video Recorder is a complete and flexible solution for recording and storing live video channels in the cloud. Integrations with AWS Media Services ensure the videos can be quickly and easily prepared, processed, and delivered. Services used include AWS Elemental MediaLive for live video encoding, AWS Elemental MediaPackage for video packaging and delivery, and AWS Elemental MediaConvert for file-based video transcoding.

Michael Wagenhofer, CEO, ORS, added: “Insys Cloud Video Recorder makes it simple to implement a secure and scalable channel while recording live sessions, something that is particularly important for government entities. Ultimately, the result is easy access for Austrian citizens to the inner workings of the Austrian Parliament, an area we feel passionately about. The proverbial cherry on the cake of this project is the integrated editing tool which rounds off this state of the art Live2VOD Cloud solution.” 

The integrated editing tool allows the parliament, as well as the editing team, to manually adjust time stamps and create new video clips from the material, as well as overlay editable inserts.
