Project Description

The project represents Kuwait TV complete shift to tapeless operation. Its end to end 4K capable workflow environment. Main Production servers are placed and managed by the editing department, the new facility will serve all Channels of Kuwait TV including production studio and Editing of material from external sources. All Servers (EVS), Storage (EVS), NLEs (Adobe) and Playout (EVS) are 4K. Tedial Enterprise MAM will be managing the whole workflow.

Kuwait TV produces and broadcasts content across its eight TV channels and is the first broadcaster to use the joint Tedial / EVS system. It’s integrated between Kuwait TV’s long-term archive management system from Tedial and its EVS IPDirector suite. the production asset management system manages content that’s ingested, created and played out using more than 20 XS series servers. The new workflow means production engineers can easily send and retrieve live assets to and from Kuwait TV’s Tedial MAM archive solution

During production the joint solution is used to quickly and efficiently pass live assets like replays, highlights and clips from IPDirector directly into the Tedial Evolution MAM system. It then securely archives the assets on spinning and LT0 disks, immediately freeing up valuable storage on the EVS servers. Post production, users can expediently search the Tedial archive for assets and metadata – including the EVS logs – and fully restore media back into the EVS system so it can be easily played out in any other programming.

Close integration of these leading systems and an easy-to-implement back-office solution amplifies the benefits of EVS’ trusted live media tools. This two-way content exchange enables users to better utilize assets and ultimately create better stories. Amid the ever-increasing demands of today’s live production, managing tremendous amounts of high resolution content is an incredibly important part of any production facility’s workflow. By integrating live and archive system using the EVS / Tedial partnered solution, users can streamline production and ease the burden on live storage.
