Telkom Indonesia Expands With Magna Systems

Telkom Indonesia has a new multi-channel playout system, MAM and archiving solution, part of a master control room build, for which Magna Systems & Engineering was chosen following tender.

Telkom Indonesia’s Head of Usee TV Master Control Room, Yosh Ramadhanul, said, “We use the new comprehensive solution from Magna for ingest, QC, on air and archiving. Magna successfully integrated our existing BMS to our new MAM and MCR, so the system runs seamlessly.”

Magna’s Jakarta-based Senior Pre Sales Engineer, Maulana Alamsyah, said, “This was a major RFP which included requirements for multi-channel playout, media asset management, routers, infrastructure and archiving. Telkom Indonesia wanted to significantly expand their news, kids and sports channels so this new playout solution was critical to their expansion plans.”

Despite the many challenges of working in a Covid world, including full remote installation, integration and commissioning of software, Magna supplied and installed an Imagine Versio multi-channel playout solution, Imagine routers and DAs, Masstech archiving and Vizrt MAM.

Alamsyah continued, “Telkom Indonesia’s existing playout system was a basic solution without a great deal of functionality. The new solution we installed now gives them DVE, advanced graphics, advanced audio processing and overall a next generation and state of the art playout system. As a result, they now have the features and capability to enhance their channel presentation and include MAM and archiving into a streamlined efficient workflow.”

The new solution supplied helps Telkom Indonesia control all aspects of their workflow from traffic, to creating assets for TVCs, through planning, the creation of a channel playlist and final playout.”

“All data and metadata is now submitted automatically to the MAM and MCR. If there are any errors or discrepancies the system will automatically alert the operator who can then amend the issue. The MAM pushes the clips to the Versio playout system whilst the operator does the final checks to make sure the content is ready to go on air. The new system also enables the MCR operator to create DVE and graphics as required.”
