Imagine Updates Master Control for Egyptian National Media Authority

Date: 09/09/2019
Imagine Updates Master Control for Egyptian National Media Authority

Imagine Communications is building a completely updated master control and playout platform for the newly formed Egyptian National Media Authority (ENMA), previously Egyptian Radio and Television Union (ERTU), the national broadcaster in Egypt. The phased upgrade of this facility is designed to deliver a high level of operational resilience and integrates seamlessly with the broadcaster’s existing infrastructure, ensuring a simple and secure transition to IP when the broadcaster is ready to migrate its operations.

“Our master control room and satellite room are mission-critical parts of our operation,” said Rafaat Younes, chief director of studio projects department at Egyptian National Media Authority. “As ENMA is the national broadcaster and transmits the leading television channels to Egyptian audiences, we recognized the need to install equipment that is operationally well-proven by major global broadcasters. It was crucial that we invested in our facility to bring it up to date with the latest robust and reliable technologies, as staying on air is paramount.”
Younes added, “As a long-standing partner, Imagine Communications showed us how we could take advantage of the latest technology to expand our operation, with the reliability and resilience we sought.”
The master control room is primarily concerned with ENMA’s four national premium channels and the production center; alongside it is the satellite control room which monitors all the other channels delivered by ENMA via Nilesat. By installing networking, monitoring and playout solutions from Imagine Communications, ENMA is not only achieving new levels of on-air certainty, it is also taking important steps along the transition path towards a software-centric, IP-based broadcast architecture.
Anas Hantash, head of MESA and North Africa at Imagine Communications, added, “ENMA wanted to expand its capabilities through improved operations. We discussed how best to implement their requirements in a way which would integrate with the rest of their operations without disruption. The new master control room and satellite room, for example, communicate with other legacy systems over SDI, and will allow ENMA to create new efficiencies and expand capabilities when they take the next step on their IP migration path.”
The Imagine Communications solutions incorporated into ENMA’s facility include the Platinum™ IP3 router with integrated Platinum SX Pro multiviewers, providing expanded sources and outputs in a compact footprint. Once ENMA is ready to take the next step towards an all IP infrastructure, the Platinum IP3 will allow them to switch uncompressed video over IP and enable the multiviewer to take full advantage of multiplexed IP streams to monitor hundreds of PiPs over hundreds of displays, giving ENMA the ability to change their monitor stacks to meet their requirements at different times.
The installation also included the Nexio+™ AMP® Advanced Media Platform — a sophisticated software application running on industry-leading Hewlett Packard Enterprise standard servers — to manage digital content from ingest to playout, and signal processing and conversion using Selenio™ MCP and Selenio 6800+™ modules.
The system was supplied and engineered in conjunction with Imagine Communications’ systems integration partner, Integrated Communications Systems. The first phase of the system went on air in July, while phase two is due to go live in September 2019.
Imagine Communications products and solutions can be seen on stand no. 1.D61 at IBC2019 (13–17 September, Amsterdam RAI). For more information, please visit https://www.imaginecommunications.com.

QComm Demystifies $150 million LPTV Repack Question Posted: 21/02/2020
QComm Demystifies $150 million LPTV Repack Question

QCommunications is a leading engineering, project management and installation vendor specializing in The Spectrum Act (REPACK project). According to Tony zumMallen, QComm President, data analytics support a higher allocation than expected.

“As of February 17, 2020, ~95% or $142M could be attributed to 825 Eligible and Non-Determined stations,” expained zumMallen. “If the trend holds this would be a much higher than expected allocation and a sigh of relief for hundreds of LPTV and translator licencees.”

“So many LPTV broadcasters are inexperienced in the complexity of the application procedure required to determine their eligibility for reimbursement,” zumMallen continued. “At QComm, we not only assist with the entire REPACK process – from needs assessment to transmitter installation to coverage verification - we help broadcasters navigate the paper path and meet all the requirements for reimbursement. We’ve already helped process many millions of dollars and 95% of our LPTV clients have been deemed eligible. And one of the best parts is that our REPACK services are covered for reimbursement, so there is little risk to the broadcaster!”

The Spectrum Act, or REPACK as it is more familiarly known, was designed to re-align the use of broadcast airwaves to suit rapidly evolving consumer demands due to the emergence of divergent entertainment and communications platforms, such as mobile data and the Internet. The shift to new territory allocations and channel assignments has resulted in the need for stations to upgrade, change or redistribute transmission equipment causing significant expenditures that the FCC is relieving with the appropriation of reimbursement funds available to broadcasters that comply with the FCC’s requirements. As part of its service offerings, QComm will assist the customer through the entire process, ensuring they meet eligibility guidelines to receive reimbursements, which could be 100%.

Cobalt Iron Compass Enterprise SaaS Backup Solution Now Offers Powerful NAS Backup Posted: 20/02/2020
Cobalt Iron Compass Enterprise SaaS Backup Solution Now Offers Powerful NAS Backup

Cobalt Iron Inc., today announced the extension for its Compass™ enterprise SaaS backup platform that offers advanced protection for network-attached storage (NAS) data. Compass delivers the industry's most efficient and comprehensive approach to NAS backup and recovery via a powerful proxy capability called the Compass NAS Agent.

"In today's enterprises, tremendous amounts of business-critical data are held in NAS systems. The amount of stored NAS data and the urgency to protect it is constantly growing; however, NAS backup and recovery techniques haven't improved much over the years," said Greg Tevis, vice president of Global Strategy at Cobalt Iron. "Compared to traditional NAS schemes such as NDMP, which can be operationally challenging and often results in massive amounts of data being stored for backups, our NAS data protection extension offers a new and modern approach. Using the Compass NAS Agent, Compass is a faster, more efficient, and easier-to-manage solution for backing up billions of files and providing unified protection of critical NAS data."

With New FOR-A HVS-2000 Switcher and ClassXGraphics, and nbsp;WLVT-TV Improves Production Workflows and On-Air Look

FOR-A Corporation of America today announced PBS39/WLVTTV, part of Lehigh Valley Public Media based in Bethlehem, Penn., upgraded its control room last August with a FOR-A HVS-2000 HANABI video production switcher and ClassX broadcast graphics system. The new equipment has improved the on-air look of the station’s original programming as well as its live production workflows.

 

For example, the HVS-2000 can load and playback graphics from the ClassX, so the TD can access them during live productions. As a result, PBS39’s graphics designer does not have to be in the control room for “routine” productions. “When I saw how well the two integrated together, plus the price, it seemed like an obvious choice,” said Andrea Cummis, chief technology officer.

The ClassX also supports the use of RSS feeds for updating election results and other data in graphics, a feature that was not supported by the station’s older graphics system. Cummis said the system “worked great” for local primary election coverage last year, but she is looking forward to using the system to its full potential for Election Night in November.

GB Labs to feature Mosaic and CORE.4 Lite at CABSAT 2020 Posted: 19/02/2020
GB Labs to feature Mosaic and CORE.4 Lite at CABSAT 2020

CABSAT 2020, Dubai, 31 March - 2 April 2020, Stand G3-24: Leaders in intelligent storage solutions, GB Labs, will showcase its award-winning Mosaic automatic asset organiser and the new CORE.4 Lite operating system during CABSAT 2020 at the Dubai World Trade Centre from 31 March – 2 April.

The Mosaic asset organiser makes it far easier to quickly search for, retrieve, and view video assets. Mosaic automatically scans all inbuilt metadata and integrates it with AI tagging enabling the ability to store, catalogue and access assets with no need for manual intervention, making it a substantial time and money saver.

GB Labs new CORE.4 Lite operating system is a custom OS specifically designed to serve media files. Its high degree of speciality guarantees stable performance for every user, whether as workgroups or individuals, while maximising the efficiency of every disk.

A powerful new feature included with CORE.4 Lite is Analytics Centre, a dashboard that runs in the background of GB Labs intelligent storage devices and continuously analyses the network, providing complete visibility of exactly how, and by whom, data is being used.

GB Labs CEO-CTO Dominic Harland said, “Read/write speeds are usually compromised by a misconfigured network, which wastes resources. But configuration issues can be difficult to locate and resolve manually. Analytics Centre automatically analyses the read/write process through the network with specially designed algorithms that identifies, locates, and suggests how to resolve any issues, often before they occur, thereby eliminating the need for painstaking manual intervention.”

GB Labs will also demonstrate how its proprietary Dynamic Bandwidth Control identifies and selects high, medium, and low priority users to guarantee that the storage system automatically adjusts to operate at peak performance for all.

According to Harland, “Dynamic Bandwidth Control makes storage malleable to ensure it can flexibly respond to changes in usage priorities without breaking. This is unique to GB Labs and can be implemented whether storage is in use by one user or an entire workgroup.”

For backup and archiving, the exhibition stand workspaces will be coupled with GB Labs EasyLTO, an easy-to-use, cost-effective, all-in-one, high-speed solution.

Finally, the company will also discuss the success of recent GB Labs deployments to new customers including M for Media; Qatl Al Youm TV; Polimer TV; Craft; Kalvi TV; and Madha TV.
