Harris Upgrades Rotana TV Central Playout Facility in the Middle East
November 19, 2009
Harris Corp. has provided its Harris One end-to-end broadcast channel playout solution to Rotana TV in order to upgrade the broadcaster’s central master control room, Harris announced Nov. 18.
Harris provided Rotana with Nexio technology, automation, servers, master control switchers, branding systems, routers, multiviewers and processing equipment.
As part of the upgrade, Systems Design, a local systems integrator and Harris dealer, was contracted to handle the complete setup of the master control room at the headquarters of Egyptian telecommunications company Nilesat under the Rotana network.
Our previous infrastructure could only support four channels. As our presence throughout the Middle East expands, we need an advanced infrastructure to support us and ensure we are future-proofed,” Naser Refaat, technical advisor at Rotana TV, said in a statement.
