Oman TV expands with Tedial

Oman TV has expanded its Tedial asset management provision to facilitate the launch of new channel Oman TV Live. The expansion includes the addition of increased storage and MAM client licences and an upgrade to the latest version of Tedial’s Tarsys MAM system.

Oman TV is the national broadcaster in Sultanate of Oman and currently broadcasts three HD channels including: Oman TV General, Oman TV Sport and Oman TV Live.

The expansion increases the speed at which content ingested into the Avid production workflow can be broadcast, improving productivity and efficiency. Operators can select content that hasn’t previously been archived for fast-turnaround playout.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. Oman TV operators can decide if content needs go through the validation process or if it can be bypassed via the shortcut workflow for immediate playout.

Tedial’s MAM technology was introduced into the broadcaster's digital production facility, on launch in 2011.

“By working closely with the team at Oman TV we have further simplified and automated business processes without compromising reliability and functionality,” explains Esther Mesas, vp Sales & Marketing, Tedial. “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.”
