It functions as the primary broadcaster for Jordan in the Middle East, reaching millions with breaking news. The station delivers a 24-hour Arabic broadcast coupled with an English-language service for 21 hours a day and a French-language service for 13 hours a day.

In an effort to improve its overall broadcast infrastructure and dependability, JRTV has added several new Grass Valley products for new routing, production switching and server technologies.

JRTV purchases included five 3G-ready K2 Summit transmission client media servers and a master control suite that complete with a router and multiviewer controlled by a new Jupiter routing switcher control solution. The installation was managed by systems integrator AVC Al-Waseet, located in Amman, Jordan, and Hannu Pro of Latvia.

At its core, the K2 Summit transmission client is built for mission-critical operations by delivering 24/7/365 reliability with two bidirectional channels and two playout channels, upgradable to three. Jupiter routing control combines hardware and software that gives JRTV full management of all its devices with the simple touch of a button on the Jupiter network. Jupiter interfaces with the master control switcher to give JRTV a range of flexibility, including the ability for up to eight on-air keys and four audio voiceovers, as well as support for a multitude of audio channels and branding sources.
