Pan-Arab media conglomerate Rotana Group launched a new 14-channel playout centre in Cairo during Ramadan as part of its efforts to centralise its operations. The project saw the deployment of a range of Harris equipment at the new Cairo facility.
“This project includes our Nexio server, ADC automation, Inscriber graphics, Videotek T&M solutions, Platinum routing as well as our Centrio multi-viewers,” commented Said Bacho, MD, Harris Middle East.
“It is one of the four major projects we have won in the last quarter, which includes the installation of a broad range of Harris equipment,” he added.
Rotana recently shut down its facility in Beirut. It also has other facilities with varying solutions. The new centre is part of its efforts to operate from one central location, from where it will play out both the Rotana and Fox channels that it owns.
