Pakistan’s Dunya TV automates facilities with Pebble Beach Systems

Dunya TV has selected Pebble Beach Systems’ Neptune automation solution as part of a new broadcast facility, based in Lahore, Pakistan. The facility will broadcast two channel — Dunya Entertainment and Dunya News, both managed under Neptune automation.

Dunya TV required an automaton system with the flexible capabilities to integrate various workflows suitable for news production and general channel playout. A Neptune automation system allows Dunya to adopt the workflows required for ingest, archive, browse review and editing and playout.

Content is ingested from VTRs and live feeds, with simultaneous ingest to IPV Spectraview encoders to create browse clips. These browse clips can be viewed on Pebble Beach’s cuts-only editing application, Razorfish for review and quality control purposes, with files sent to Final cut Pro editors for more complex editing.

An Omneon MediaGrid is used for content archive, with Pebble Beach’s Anchor Media Manager handling all media transfer of ingested, edited, quality controlled and archived files throughout the system. Neptune also supports a comprehensive news workflow through integration to an Apple Xsan server, used as a collaborative editing environment for 10-plus Final Cut Pro editors, and an ENPS newsroom via MOS interface.
