India’s Sahara Samay selects Omneon for Hindi news channel

November 13, 2009

Sahara Samay TV, the 24-hour multichannel, multilingual news and current affairs broadcaster based in Noida, has shifted its broadcast operations in Mumbai onto a new Omneon platform supporting ingest, production and playout.

In an upgrade to its existing infrastructure, the Indian news channel deployed two Omneon Spectrum media server systems, supplied and integrated by Shaf Broadcast, to ensure around-the-clock delivery of national and international news programming.

In Mumbai, the broadcaster has integrated one Spectrum media server for ingest and production and a second for playout, with the two systems providing a total of 18 ports. The platform supporting Sahara Samay’s Hindi news channel is tied into AP’s ENPS news system and six Apple Final Cut Pro edit seats.
