Installation & Setup

Installing the Sofie Core as well as all the Gateways, Blueprints, and additional hardware that Sofie can interact with.

The Sofie system consists of several applications that work together to provide complete broadcast automation system. Each of these components' installation will be covered in this guide. Additional information about the products or services mentioned alongside the Sofie Installation can be found on the Further Reading page.

There are four minimum required components to get a Sofie system up and running. First you need the Sofie Core, which is the brains of the operation. Then a set of Blueprints to handle and interpret incoming and outgoing data. Next, an Ingest Gateway to fetch the data for the Blueprints. Then finally, a Playout Gateway to send the data to your playout device of choice.
