NDTV rebuilds playout with Harris
Harris has installed an interoperable Harris ONE broadcast solution at NDTV, one of India’s leading private commercial broadcasters, to enable the playout of NDTV’s 24-hour movie, music and entertainment channels.
The playout facility rebuild includes a range of Harris integrated broadcast products, including ADC playout automation, Panacea routers, 6800+ core processing and networking products, Predator II multiviewers, the X75 all-in-one processor, the Inscriber TitleOne broadcast graphics system, Icon branding and switching and the NetVX video networking platform. The install also incorporates a master timing generator system with GPS time synchronization and DTS Neural Loudness Control.
The ADC system fully automates the control and playout of program material for six of NDTV’s 10 channels across two locations: Mumbai and Delhi. ADC is used to ingest the programs in Mumbai and to manage the playlist in Delhi for transmission. The NetVX video-networking system provides the international distribution feeds from NDTV to the UK and United States for expatriate viewers.
