The US government-backed Al Hurra network has switched its three channels to the Omnibus iTX automation and playout system.
The Al Hurra, Al Hurra Iraq and Al Hurra Europe channels – headquartered in the US – have completed their migration to the software based system last month.
“Al Hurra's implementation of iTX provides the core of an extremely efficient and agile broadcasting operation,” said Mike Oldham, CEO, Omnibus Systems. “Because of the responsiveness of the iTX platform, combined with its state-of-the-art automation and ready integration with external systems, Al Hurra has been able to achieve a far greater level of productivity, while delivering a more compelling service to its viewers.”
The iTX implementation at Al Hurra is configured for three fully redundant SD channels with four ingest and four preview channels.
It also integrates third-party graphics, asset management and traffic systems.
