Farmers' Almanac TV Chooses SignaSysHD editing and multi-format VTR ingest/dub island get program running (February 21, 2005)
SignaSys, Inc. announced today that its technology project for the Farmers' Almanac TV (FATV) has been completed. Among other best-of-breed business alliances, FATV selected SignaSys as its key business partner for the creation of the needed technical infrastructure, with an initial focus on FATV's ability to ingest, edit and compile hours of raw HD content for programming to-air.
SignaSys provided the turnkey integration of FATV's Final Cut Pro HD editing systems and Ingest/Dub Multi-format VTR Islands as a first phase of a multi-year rollout. The design includes plans for sophisticated production and media management systems, expanded production capabilities, contribution, distribution and news gathering technologies.
Longtime production veterans Ron Senkowski, FATV Founder, and Mickey Youmans, FATV President, conceptualized and launched Farmers' Almanac TV as a television offshoot of the text brand. After Farmers' Almanac TV secured the commitment of Farmers' Almanac Publishing, SignaSys was brought in to facilitate the turnkey delivery of the start-up's technology needs.
"SignaSys has proven to our organization that they are a leader in world-class systems integration," says Mickey Youmans. "We have a fully operational Phase-One-System that meets every requirement, most critically our defined needs to expand. SignaSys engineered an effective migration path, which will allow FATV to build on the current future-proof foundation."
Roland Hoffmann, SignaSys President & CEO notes: "SignaSys is very pleased to have prevailed as FATV's chosen long-term technology partner. There are many qualified engineering and integration companies in this industry, but not many expend the effort and have the discipline to understand the reasons Why? a project is being done. When SignaSys focuses on that question, the result is usually a risk-averse long-range technology plan."
