Seven Top Television Channels Successfully Use Beehive Systems’s isle’wiz™ for Exclusive Coverage of 2004 Indian Elections

(PRWEB) July 3, 2004

Beehive Systems announced that the top players in the Indian broadcast industry — Sahara TV Network (including its national and two regional channels), Doordarshan, Zee News, Indiavision and TV 9 have reported to have successfully made use of Beehive’s graphics content creation and automation solution called isle’wiz™ for the coverage of the 2004 Indian parliamentary elections.

This dynamic solution helped these news channels generate thousands of graphics round-the-clock as multiple video streams. It also ensured the integration of the graphics with volumes of election data housed in various data sources and those coming in live from the reporters on the field in the form of exit polls and final counting results. The biggest advantage for the news personnel using this solution is its ability to generate graphics at the press of a button without having to do any programming.

Overall, the tool made it possible for the news channels to provide minute-by-minute analyses and update of the election results and generate instant graphics as situation demanded. These benefits the broadcasters achieved came at significantly low cost, which underlines the “high quality at low cost” differential of Beehive Systems.

Talking about the gains that Sahara TV Network achieved by using isle’wiz™, Mr. Arup Ghosh, Head, Sahara National Channel said, “The 2004 Elections coverage was a mammoth project that required round-the-clock technical attention. To ensure success, it needed efficiency to analyse and deal with volumes of data and flexibility to cope with constantly changing scenarios and priorities. “

Beehive’s solution (isle’wiz) with its capacity to generate live round-the-clock graphics integrated with data sources made it possible for us to provide minute-by-minute analyses of the elections — starting from exit polls to expert views to final counting of votes.

Besides the capacity of the solution, the sincerity and dedication of the Beehive team was a key to our success. Our collaboration with Beehive has definitely proved successful and we are sure this relationship will result in long-term gains as well.”

Satisfied with the impact that isle’wiz™ made for the broadcasters, Mr. Ajay Pal Singh, Vice President Business Development at Beehive Systems reflected, “It’s a matter of pride for us that such high profile news channels like Sahara Samay Rashtriya, Sahara UP, Sahara MP, Zee News, Doordarshan, Indiavision, and TV 9 posed faith in Beehive Systems and used our graphics creation and automation solution – isle’wiz for a critical project like the elections. We also feel satisfied that isle’wiz was able to achieve its purpose by simplifying and automating the entire process of content enrichment and automation for these broadcasters hence enabling them to set high standards in exclusive and live elections coverage.”
