TSL secures RTP contract with Ibertelco

March 12, 2004

Television Systems Limited (TSL) has won a joint contract with Portuguese company Ibertelco from RTP (Radiotelevisao Portuguesa), Portugal's state-owned broadcaster.

The contract is for the relocation of RTP's main television news and transmission facilities into a new building in Lisbon. The new facility will be housed in what was an old diamond factory. Extensive renovation and expansion work has been carried out including a new News Studios and expanded News Room, new Continuity Room for six channels, and new MCR and CAR rooms.

The broadcast facilities include a digital newsroom system, based around Quantel/Omnibus technology that TSL installed for RTP in 2000/1. Included in the contract is a new Pro-Bel router. The rest of the core equipment will remain unchanged. A team of TSL and Ibertelco specialists are working on site.
