Al-Kass TV News System
Project Description

INC has been contracted to undertake a major upgrade for Al Dawri and Al Kass TV. The project saw INC upgrading the Qatari sports channel’s facility to allow a full digital end-to-end workflow for post- production.

The project included deploying Avid iNews Version 3, upgrading and expanding the channel’s non-linear editing systems and installing ISIS central storage. Al Kass TV switched from Adrenaline to Avid’s latest Nitris DX system and the Newscutter Nitris DX. Avid’s newest Airspeed Multi Stream servers are employed for all HD and SD ingest as well as playout.

Eight Airspeed servers four for ingest and four for playout are installed. The servers support various formats including DVCPro 25, DVCPro 50, IMX 30 and IMX 50 in addition to having internal storage. Other solutions that are deployed include a Capture Manager for automatic news-feed ingest and Deko 3000 graphics solutions from Avid.
