The new People's Liberation Army Television facility is configured for HD and SD ingest, archiving, browsing, editing, graphics and 3-D animation.

China has completed its first dedicated HD/SD production and transmission center.

Newly built in the Dongcheng district of central Beijing for the People's Liberation Army Television (PLA-TV), the 65,600sq ft Liberation Military Broadcast facility is equipped to originate, post produce and uplink programs for Central China Television Channel 7, which covers teenage, agricultural and military themes.

Dayang International was awarded a $6 million contract to design and install the entire PLA-TV technical system. It is a complete multidefinition solution including 43 nonlinear edit stations, consisting of 20 D3-Edit 5000, 13 D3-Edit 7000 and 10 D3-Edit HD9 systems. The installation also includes nine Dayang VIPS-4-1250 servers, four Magic Wall multichannel monitor splitters, a D3-Dub copying facility, D3-News processor and D3-Exchange file-based data network.

These resources are configured to enable HD and SD signal ingest and archiving, browsing, editing, graphics and 3-D animation, asset management, master control, newsroom processing and automated playout.
