As part of its project to return to air in time for its national elections, independent Lebanese broadcaster Murr TV turned to Grass Valley for a systems solution for its news production requirements. The project covers systems integration, providing interfaces with Murr TV’s Avid iNews newsroom and post production, and playout automation from Etere.
This recent order includes 13 Grass Valley LDK 400 studio cameras, a Trinix NXT router with Jupiter control and two Maestro master control switchers for the final transmission. The newsroom system is based on the Aurora news production system, including desktop and craft editing as well as a 24-channel K2 media server with large-scale central storage. In the newsroom, there are 19 Aurora Browse workstations to manage ingest and view the contents of the shared storage, 15 desktop editors and four Aurora News editors for when packages need high-quality finishing.
