Sahara India selects Leitch to supply state-of-the-art digital newsroom

Sahara India has selected Leitch to provide a state-of-the-art digital newsroom facility for its new broadcast news operation.

The facility integrates 10 edit suites utilizing Leitch's NewsFlash craft editor, 10 ingest channels, and 18 playout channels with the ENPS newsroom computer system and OmniBus automation. The Leitch system provides all editors with immediate and simultaneous access to ingested media for collaboration on news stories and the fastest turnaround time for breaking news.

The complete installation also includes a 192x192 SDI IntegratorT router and the GenesisT video processing infrastructure platform, fully loaded with hybrid digital/analog video and audio interface modules. The equipment will be under the control of Leitch's CCS PilotT software application, which provides all of the tools needed to configure, control, monitor and secure access to all CCS-enabled and many third-party devices on a network.

The equipment is installed in facilities in Noida near Delhi, Mumbai, and throughout several regional stations in India. Shaf Broadcasting Pvt., Leitch's distributor in India, has completed the installation.
