DMT aids Radio Television Hong Kong digitisation with NOA
HONG KONG: A Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) project to digitise a collection of 20,000 CDs and MiniDiscs within six weeks was recently made possible by Austrian manufacturer NOA, working in conjunction with Digital Media Technology Co Ltd (DMT).
The specification required DMT, a leading regional distributor and systems integrator, to deliver its solution as a service, marking a departure for the company. Nevertheless, within a reported 16 days the complete NOA system was installed in the RTHK premises and put to work.
The configuration used included NOA’s CDLector, MediaLector, jobDB, MediaButler and DBScripter. The manufacturer also developed additional functionality for the installation in order to meet the specification for precise and detailed notifications on C2 problems during transfer.
‘We are very proud that DMT could meet the project goals for RTHK at such short notice,’ enthused Christophe Kummer, NOA’s CEO. ‘We expect more and more of these urgent projects as broadcasters and other content owners rush to head off obsolescence. NOA's investment in our support and installations team means we have the resources to achieve fast turnovers for clients and customers.’
