OmniBus Systems, a provider of broadcast automation and content management products, has sold newsroom, media asset management, and playout technologies to a new TV station in Kuwait, Al Rai Television.
Al Rai Television, on-air since October 2004, is one of the first broadcast enterprises undertaken by Al-Rai Media Group, publisher of Kuwait’s highest circulation daily newspaper. The deal marked one of OmniBus’ first installations in the country.
OmniBus products form part of the main broadcasting infrastructure contract that was managed, designed and delivered by Sony Professional Services as the prime contractor and systems integrator. OmniBus supplied its G3 modular architecture with desktop control, low-resolution browse capabilities for all journalists, and the HeadLine Media Editor with voiceover recording functionality.
Al Rai is using the OmniBus system to coordinate the operation of a wide range of equipment including Leitch video servers and AP’s Electronic News Production System (ENPS) via the MOS protocol.
