Intigral, a provider of digital entertainment and sports in the Middle East/North Africa region and a subsidiary of stc, has appointed Pebble to design, supply and build its playout solutions for a new headend facility.
The facility will combine Pebble Automation, Integrated Channel and Pebble Remote for multi-channel ingest, content management and playout.
At the core of the new system is Pebble’s scalable software-defined Integrated Channel. This provides audio, video and graphics functionality in a compact, cost-effective format to meet Intigral’s ingest, channel branding, and frame-accurate multi-channel playout requirements.
The solutions incorporate the latest NDI standard inputs and outputs for video and audio monitoring, in addition to Advanced SCTE Insertion for AD Replacement and monetisation.
Multiple HD and SD feeds will ingest directly into shared storage for live recording and playout. Enterprise-level automation will ensure continuity on air with robust and fully redundant content monitoring and management. Web-based monitoring, management and control across the new automated environment will be provided via Pebble Remote. Another customer requirement is the restoration of multilingual subtitle files, a process enabled by Pebble’s automated workflow solutions. Delivery of this solution is scheduled for later this year.
