Trans Media Goes Live With Pebble’s Playout Solutions

Trans Media, a leading television network based in Jakarta, Indonesia, has successfully launched a new playout system delivered by Pebble and their channel partner system Integrator, PT. Interindo Multimedia.

The upgraded solution has replaced Trans Media’s legacy infrastructure, providing a range of more advanced features to overcome the challenges of moving to a new broadcast system for the future.

The playout system, which is now live on air, is based on Pebble Automation controlling Pebble Integrated Channel and is designed to ensure seamless broadcasting for the two free-to-air channels which are Trans TV and Trans 7. The solution offers 2+2 channel redundancy, controlled through the Pebble Automation Channel Manager. This includes the capability to automatically switch to a backup channel via a third-party router when a failure is detected in the main channel. In addition, native Flash and HTML5 graphics are now used to deliver complex visuals, while simpler PNG or TGA sequences are used for logos. Trans Media can also now insert SCTE-104 messages within its program output, with all of these capabilities under playlist control.

Trusted by broadcasters and service providers worldwide, Pebble Automation provides enterprise-level automation for powerful multi-channel delivery. The system is designed to deliver flawless control of a wide variety of channel types in any combination, whether live and unpredictable content, regional opt-outs, simulcast, or simple clip-based channels. Pebble Integrated Channel is a software-defined solution that offers audio, video, and graphics functionality to meet the requirements for ingest, channel branding, and frame-accurate multi-channel playout. With powerful signal processing capabilities, flexible configurability, interfacing capacity, and a huge variety of stream or file types, it replicates in software all the functionality of a traditional broadcast playout chain made up of single-purpose devices performing dedicated functions.
