Addis Ababa State TV Installs Shared Storage For Production Workflow

Addis Ababa, an Ethiopian broadcaster announced installation of a Facilis Technology multi-user shared storage system within a new broadcast production facility.

Local system integrator, Onset Media Systems, selected a Facilis TerraBlock 24EX/16 64TB shared storage system to complete the installation for Ethiopia’s regional broadcaster the Addis Ababa City Government Mass Media Agency.

The agency is known locally as ‘the voice of the city’, operating Addis Lisan magazine and the Metropolitan Journal alongside its TV station, Addis Ababa State TV.

Onset Media Systems specializes in the design and integration of bespoke systems and commissioned the storage system in September 2017. The storage system relies on a combination of Ethernet (10Gbps) plus Fiber Channel (8Gbps) connectivity. This multi-user shared storage system is supporting a network of almost 100 editors and other creative production executives at the production headquarters.

Staff are able to share content and work collaboratively across the spectrum of production activities. The facility's storage is integrated with SI Media’s media asset management (MAM), ingest and playout systems, as well as Grass Valley Edius editing and SI Media’s Newsroom system.
