JRTV calls on Grass Valley for reliability
JORDAN: In what is described as ‘an effort to improve its overall broadcast infrastructure and dependability’, Jordan Radio and Television Corporation (JRTV) has invested in new routing, production switching and server technologies from Grass Valley.
JRTV’s solution includes five 3G-ready K2 Summit transmission client media servers and a master control suite that includes a router and multiviewer controlled by a new Jupiter routing switcher control solution. The installation was managed by Amman-based systems integrator AVC Al-Waseet, alongside Hannu Pro of Latvia.
‘We’re a full-time operation with live news being broadcasted in several different languages, so the reliability and performance of our technology is crucial to the success of our station,’ said Khalaf Al-Khawaldeh, director of engineering at JRTV. ‘Grass Valley helped us put together a unique combination of products that give us the confidence to distribute news around the clock without worrying about failure. The power, speed and overall dependability of their product lines is truly unmatched.’
‘The need for more flexible and higher-quality broadcast systems is continually on the rise, especially in the Middle East where the market is seeing considerable growth,’ added Said Bacho, senior vice president, sales, EMEA, Grass Valley. ‘We’re delighted to work with JRTV to improve their services with technologies that are reliable and perform to an exceptional standard. In this ever-changing broadcast landscape, it’s important that our customers are on the leading edge with their solutions, and our deal with JRTV is a perfect example of how we execute that plan.’
