GV secures TT HD deal
Grass Valley (GV) has secured a major HD broadcast infrastructure deal with Tunisian public broadcaster la T?l?vision Tunisienne (TT).
15 March 2009
The prime contract was awarded to GV’s in-country partner Sumitomo Corporation. GV is responsible for systems design, integration, and providing the bulk of the equipment, as a sub-contractor.
The new infrastructure will enable TT to launch high definition television services next year.
The GV-designed HD production and playout centre will include a news studio and a virtual production studio; graphics, audio and video post production facilities; newsroom automation; two playout control rooms and a central apparatus room.
Much of the interconnection between production, post and storage will be based on IT connectivity, with GV's K2 media server operating at the heart of the operation.
The new facilities will also leverage multiple GV Trinix and Concerto Series routers, a Jupiter control system, Kayak HD production switchers, and Maestro continuity/master control switchers.
The project is financed with a Japanese ODA (Official Development Assistance) loan and includes additional third-party Japanese equipment.
