Al Aan TV Selects Harris Broadcast for Transition to HD

Harris Broadcast announced that it is on air with a new, end-to-end, file-based HD broadcast solution at Al Aan Television. From its base in Dubai Media City, pan-Arab satellite channel Al Aan broadcasts free to air and has an extensive online presence, covering women related issues, news and current affairs from the unique perspective of Arab women. Launched in 2006, the station now has a significant following. In support of a phased migration to HD, Al Aan selected Harris Broadcast to manage the transition and implement a highly secure, flexible and efficient workflow. The fully integrated, end-to-end media content management and channel playout solution enables Al Aan to centralize and simplify the entire content lifecycle, automate labor-intensive processes and easily repurpose content for multiple delivery platforms. As part of a project to further boost its reach and play out large amounts of content in many different formats, Al Aan has expanded on its existing video servers with a network of Harris Broadcast HD/SD Nexio(R) server and storage solutions, along with Nexio(R) Motion intelligent media movement software, which allows Al Aan to customize software defined workflows uniquely to their operations and save labor. The new installation is designed with a high level of redundancy, including dual ADC(TM) automation platforms. The new system was designed and implemented internally by Al Aan engineering team, supported by Harris Broadcast. Together, they developed all the necessary interfaces and configurations. Al Aan intends to move its entire operation to HD. As a first step, Harris Broadcast supported its move from SD playout to 16:9 aspect ratio, to secure viewers acceptance.

Doordarshan Selects Harris Broadcast for Nationwide Digital Transition

Harris Broadcast announced it has been selected by national broadcaster Doordarshan to deploy a new DVB-T2 transmission infrastructure across the country. The first of two transmission contracts awarded to Harris Broadcast adds HD channels to digital multiplexes in four major metropolitan areas. Each facility will be served with a new 6kW Harris Broadcast Maxiva ULX DVB-T2 transmitter. The second contract is for 19 Maxiva ULX transmitters, which will be used to roll out digital transmission to the regions of India. In the first instance, these will carry standard definition channels in their multiplexes, but the flexibility of the transmitter and infrastructure design allows for an easy upgrade to HD when the time comes.
