Oman TV launches new channel with Tedial

Tedial has further expanded its MAM offering at Oman TV. The national broadcaster in Sultanate of Oman currently broadcasts three HD channels, Oman TV General, Oman TV Sport and Oman TV Live.

The expansion at the broadcaster’s HD digital studio facility has enabled the launch of its new channel Oman TV Live with the addition of increased storage and MAM client licences. The new contract includes a 12-month service level agreement with an upgrade to the latest version of Tedial’s Tarsys MAM system.

The new expansion provided by Tedial also increases the speed at which content ingested into the Avid production workflow can be broadcast. Now operators can select content that hasn’t previously been archived for fast-turnaround playout. The archive process includes: editing, compliance-censorship, automatic QC, segmentation, subtitling, validation and archiving.

“The Oman TV HD digital facility is cutting-edge and provides a reference for broadcasters across the world,” explained Esther Mesas, vice president, Sales and Marketing, Tedial.  “With our office in MEA we are perfectly placed to assist customers like Oman TV with a hands-on approach. By working closely with the team at Oman TV we have further simplified and automated business processes without compromising reliability and functionality. The new shortcut workflow is a key example of this as it allows operators even greater control regarding the speed at which content is broadcast.”

Oman TV’s digital production facility was launched three years ago and provides the country’s first HD studios.
