NDTV launches new channels with OmniBus iTX
New Delhi Television Limited (NDTV) has launched two new channels in India and the Middle East using OmniBus iTX. NDTV GOOD TIMES, on-air since Sept. 7, was followed on Sept. 10 by NDTV ARABIA, a channel aimed at expatriate Indian viewers in the Gulf.
The iTX system at NDTV comprises two main on-air channels branded with master control, live playback and logos; each of those channels has a cuts-only backup channel for redundancy. The solution was made up purely of OmniBus software running on 10 HP servers with a Grass Valley Acapella router and Isilon storage.
NDTV is one of India's largest private producers of news, current affairs and entertainment television. NDTV operates NDTV 24X7, the English news channel; NDTV INDIA, a 24-hour Hindi news channel; and NDTV PROFIT, a 24-hour business channel.
