Times Network in India has chosen BroadStream’s OASYS integrated playout system as the platform to launch its new live channel Property Now, India’s first property news channel, as well as to perform playout of its existing HD movie channel, Movies Now.
“We were looking for a reliable and highly automated playout offering with a simple and intuitive interface that leaves no room for error,” explained Farzin Najmi (pictured), general manager of broadcast and corporate IT, technology and broadcast operations at Times Network, Mumbai.
“Compared to most other playout systems in the market, OASYS is economical, flexible, and refreshingly intuitive it also came highly recommended by many industry colleagues and peers who’d previously worked with BroadStream Solutions.”
Times Network has just completed installation of the two fully redundant channels with a number of OASYS modules, including advanced graphics for tickers, logo and bug inserts; Browser for content editing and preparation on the go; as well as its unique N+M Redundancy Manager for added protection.
The OASYS system at Times Network integrates with a Gen21 traffic software system for both live and pre-recorded programme playout.
Because of its modular design, the OASYS system gives Times Network the opportunity to licence new modules and channels as and when required, without having to upgrade the existing hardware.
BroadStream’s president of sales and business development, added: Ben Wolk: “We’re very proud to have been chosen for this exciting Times Network project it’s always a privilege to work with companies that are renowned for pioneering content in their market especially after such a thoroughly comprehensive selection process.”
