Tunis (Tunisia). The Tunisian broadcaster Nessma TV, based in the capital city of Tunis, has purchased an integrated tapeless system based on SI media automation/mam/traffic suite of software, two Omneon MediaDeck™ servers and Miranda Imagestores.
The equipment will support a new file-based workflow that streamlines post-production and simplifies playout of the station’s programming.
SI media software tools facilitate the ingest of contents into the MediaDeck™ servers by enabling scheduled recording of clips on either a regular or one-time basis.
It will also support file-based ingesting.
The MediaDeck™ system is integrated with Avid editors via the Anystream Agility application, thus guaranteeing smooth editing workflow. Further, the SI media MediaRec Tool provides an easy-to-use interface for creating and manipulating playlists, as well as scheduling clip playout from the MediaDeck™ servers.
Video Progetti which is working as Systems Integrator provided the Omneon MediaDeck™ media servers, the first Omneon gear installed in Tunis, in a turnkey solution that also includes Miranda Imagestore 750 Master Control, Kaleido Alto multiviewer, Pro-Bel Pyxies video and audio router, Anystream Agility media converter along with the efficient SI media suite of automation software.
