The newly opened broadcast facility in Turkmenistan’s capital city of Ashgabad is being equipped with a range of Wohler Technologies’ audio and video monitoring, switching, and processing systems. Radikal Ltd provided all the Wohler equipment, which was then integrated by Policom.
According to a press release the Wohler equipment ‘will facilitate complete monitoring and management of signals, while giving operators the ability to mix and output various audio content, manage metadata, and analyse Dolby audio’.
"To be competitive you need to deliver first-class content, and you can only do that if you have the necessary toolkit to deliver that quality," said Burak Deadeviren, Project Manager at Policom. "We chose Wohler gear for this first-of-a-kind broadcast facility because we knew we could count on the reliability of Wohler products, as well as the quality of the company's engineering. The versatility of Wohler systems is also valuable, as we have been able to tailor their operation to meet the specific needs of this new facility."
Turkmenistan TV's 700-foot building (not pictured) sits high in the hills overlooking Ashgabad. Wohler gear is being installed across the new facility - in the broadcast center, master control room, ingest area, studios, post production, and OB vehicles - to support production and playout of six television channels.
"The Turkmenistan TV tower represents an impressive architectural and technical achievement," said Terry Allford, Business Development and Channel Manager of Wohler EMEA. "As a new build facility, this project offers the opportunity to integrate the finest broadcast systems available, and the Wohler systems being integrated into the facility will ensure delivery of high-quality content in an efficient manner that complements the station's broadcast product for the consumer."
