Imagine Communications Builds End-to-End MCRs for jawapostv

Imagine Communications has developed an integrated master control room solution for jawapostv, a part of Jawa Pos Group. The new solution has been installed at sites in Jakarta and Surabaya.

jawapostv broadcasts news from cities across Indonesia. Upgrading from a third-party, channel-in-a-box solution, the broadcaster recognized the need for more flexible and agile operations, greater functionality and the added resilience that comes from a more comprehensive solution.

The new MCR design uses Imagine Communications’  ADC automation, with redundant Versio integrated playout systems. The installation also includes Imagine’s master control switcher and Versio Graphics, which provides dynamic links to social networking services, such as Twitter and Facebook and rich animation features. 

Content is stored on a network of Nexio servers, and media is managed by Nexio Motion. Imagine has also implemented a direct link between the content automation and jawapostv’s newsroom computer system, providing simple editorial control and production automation.

Comprehensive monitoring is provided by the Imagine Multiviewer. Signals are routed using the Platinum VX compact 48 x 48 router, and signal processing is provided by a range of Imagine Communications modules, signal generators, clock and waveform monitor. The system was designed by the Imagine Communications team in Southeast Asia, implemented in conjunction with jawapostv and supported by PT Dwi Kreasi Media, which provided local engineering resources.
