Hong Kong’s now TV selects Oasys

HONG KONG: Seeking a channel-in-a-box solution to replace its traditional master control playout systems, Hong Kong’s now TV has taken receipt of 20 Broadstream Oasys playout channels, which use IPTV technology to deliver content to viewers. Installed by Broadstream’s local distributor, Magna Systems, the solution reportedly saves on investment and space, while reducing the time and resources spent on training and day-to-day operations.

‘The Oasys platform was just what we were looking for,’ said Alan Chan, VP broadcast operations and engineering at now TV operator, PCCW. ‘Not only does it provide multichannel playout of live and pre-recorded content with broadcast quality graphics from a single IT server, the system can also dynamically manage channel redundancy with 1:1, M:1 and/or M:N configurations with channel prioritisation. For us, reliability and resilience were absolutely imperative in our purchasing decision.’

After initially installing eight primary and four backup channels of Oasys for playout services with graphic inserts, now TV gradually expanded the system to use the Oasys platform for most of its new services. ‘Upscaling Broadstream’s Oasys solution is incredibly straightforward. You can literally plug and play to launch a new channel, plus Oasys has IP in/out capability which fits into our future plans for IP playout – we already have an IP infrastructure and are delivering content to our customers using IPTV technology,’ furthered Mr Chan. ‘We’re very pleased with the level of support we receive from Broadstream too. The company helps us solve problems without any red tape, form-filling, or incident reports, which often slow down progress. Any issues or questions we have are dealt with promptly and professionally.’

‘Our ongoing relationship with the diligent team at now TV is a testament to the high quality and reliability that all of our customers can expect when they invest in Broadstream’s platform and our people,’ said Ben Wolk, president of sales and business development at Broadstream Solutions. ‘We’re incredibly proud to be at the forefront when it comes to improving workflow for companies that embrace technological advances in the way that now TV does.’
