China Sports Media installs TSL FlashBoard.

Sports broadcaster China Sports Media (CSM) has installed the TSL FlashBoard Information and display system at its headquarters in Beijing, China.

Holding the rights to China's football league, as well as many other Chinese and Asian events, CSM has a large amount of coverage to manage. This, said CSM, made keeping track of what was happening in each studio a challenge for staff and visitors alike as they moved around the production hub.

To overcome this, CSM chose FlashBoard, which allows the broadcaster to design tailored displays that are located outside each studio, in the control rooms and in other areas. Each display can include a free mix of live video and production information, Including clocks and timers, workflow details and operator instructions, tallies and cue lights, as well as branding.

The displays are driven in real time from a central hub, while design of each display is via a simple drag-and-drop interface using TSL Products' virtual panel design software. The ease of design means that each location can have its own layout of relevant information, tailored to the size of the screen on which it will be seen.

Zhu Jianping, technical director at China Sports Media, said: "We found that it was hard to keep track of what each studio was doing without referring to paper. We spoke to a lot of broadcasters who were very supportive of TSL Products and its control and display systems.

"We were introduced to FlashBoard, which was exactly what we were looking for. As well as providing all the information we need to be more effective, it is also an opportunity for us to reinforce our brand identity."

In the first phase of installation, which took place last month, CSM installed two control base stations to provide redundant control of 28 display systems, some of which are located outside the CSM facility.

Dan Bailey, broadcast control product manager, TSL Products, concluded: "Because every single display can be tailored Individually, FlashBoard allows the broadcast centre's operators to get the right information to the right place."
