Ethiopia’s FANA TV, which first started broadcasting in September 2017, has completed a major expansion of its FlashNet storage system.

This has seen the 150TB capacity system installed at its headquarters in Addis Ababa expanded by an additional 240TB of mirrored disk storage

The upgrade was overseen by Athens-based systems integrator Telmaco SA, which also managed the initial installation as part of its extensive work on the original buildout of Faba TV’s state-of-the-art facility.

The FlashNet storage ecosystem integrates with an Avid Interplay Production Asset Management system and Aveco Astra Automation Systems via dedicated plugins, providing an automated bridge between the broadcaster’s systems that enables rapid access to FANA TV’s assets. Enriched metadata is stored with the assets throughout their lifecycle, enabling FANA TV’s media and broadcast departments to manage large repositories of media assets and quickly locate and retrieve relevant content ready for post-production, programming and playout.
