On Playout or master control rooms all the signals are received after going through post-production and carrying out a control that reviews and adapts the contents, setting up the storyboard playlist, adding the advertising and promotional blocks, canned content, graphics, subtitles and making way for the live sections, as well as monitoring the 24 h broadcast. Automation systems, branding subtitles, etc. and video servers that generate the linear channels for broadcasting are used for this purpose.
Did you know… A little more than two decades ago, continuity operators did not work night shifts. Broadcasts ended with a test card with music until 8:00 in the morning of the following day.
