ImaginAsian chooses ON-AIR K Series for automated playout

ON-AIR Systems strengthens its position in the US broadcasting industry with an order from multi-media entertainment company, ImaginAsian Entertainment Inc.

ImaginAsian Entertainment (iaTV), the New York-based broadcaster, has chosen ON-AIR systems to playout its satellite and cable network using two ON-AIR playKast master playout systems.

Under a separate services agreement, the playKast systems have been installed in Globecomm Systems' broadcasting center in Long Island, NY, where Globecomm provides 24-hour hosting services for iaTV.

Globecomm also provides iaTV's onward transmission services, including a complete satellite distribution service on the Intelsat Americas 13 satellite platform.

In-house productions are edited in Final Cut Pro. iaTV operators capture the programs, commercials and other events, and prepare the schedules in their Manhattan studios. With the new ON-AIR playKast systems in place, media files are sent via a leased line to Globecomm in Long Island and stored on a network storage system until they are required for playout. Playout lists can be rearranged, and files deleted or added using ON-AIR playKast's drag and drop interface. As changes are made, the system automatically recalculates start and finish times.

iaTV prepares graphics using ON-AIR playKast's graphics generator. This enables them to create unlimited layers of graphic overlays and text-based information all within the playout system, thus avoiding the need for dedicated graphics software.

The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
