MSA Focus delivers broadcast management for Malaysian satellite broadcast network

In a five-year project, MSA Focus has implemented its enterprise product ForeTV at Malaysian satellite broadcaster Astro. The broadcaster airs more than 130 channels in a number of languages from its headquarters in Kuala Lumpur.

ForeTV from MSA Focus provides a common, consistent user interface for all business functionality including advertising, subscriptions, program acquisition, ingest and scheduling — all working with playout automation and media management from Omnibus plus conditional access and electronic programming guide systems from NDS.

The ForeTV modular system also uses Microsoft SQL2008 for database access and Workflow Foundation and Web services to develop the user interface. When completed, the system at Astro will have 280 users, working in English, Malay, Chinese and Indian languages. Tailoring of the system for Astro has been undertaken by the MSA Focus development center in Malaysia as well as at its headquarters in the UK.

ForeTV is a comprehensive suite of applications, built on the Microsoft .NET framework, which gives a broadcaster a single point of control over all business functionalities.
