Imagine Communications has supplied a virtualized playout and asset management system to Janata Television, based in Kathmandu, Nepal. Janata (which translates from Hindi as “the people’s”) TV is part of the Nepalese Janata media company, which is also active in radio and publishing.
Imagine Communications is providing a full upgrade of the central technical facilities at Abu Dhabi Media, one of the most forward-looking media companies in the MENA region. The centre, which includes playout facilities for 15 HD channels, relied extensively on Imagine technology when it was first established 10 years ago.
Imagine Communications, empowering the media and entertainment industry through transformative innovation, has successfully implemented a business continuity playout site, with full premium channel functionality, for Abu Dhabi Media (ADM). The disaster recovery solution uses Imagine Communications’ playout, automation and other software products running on du’s Media Cloud platform. du is one of the leading ICT service providers in the United Arab Emirates. In addition to providing ADM with a cost-efficient and fully functional disaster recovery facility, the cloud-based deployment has prompted the media company to revitalize its premises-based playout operations to match the performance and flexibility of the new cloud-based facilities.
