INX Media India goes to air with playKast
INX Media India has invested in ON-AIR Systems’ playKast solution as part of its integrated workflow system. The challenge for the network was to implement a system that worked with a range of existing channel facilities and systems and to achieve this within a very tight working schedule.
The new playout facilities at INX Media, allowing for up to 16 channels of digital broadcast, are based on playKast from ON-AIR Systems. ON-AIR worked with TSS and Isilon to rapidly deploy system interfaces that allow files to be scheduled, ingested, stored and played out. Further integration with Apple Final Cut Pro editing systems allows for the full range of editing from simple cuts on the playout servers to full post production on short-form content.
The playKast system allows INX Media India to schedule and play out all primary and secondary content including channel branding, news feeds, subtitles and file and live events all from a single PC system, giving operators complete control over their output without the need for ancillary equipment.
