ZJTV expands Imagine Communications infrastructure
CHINA: Zhejiang Radio and Television Group (ZJTV) recently expanded its broadcast facilities to accommodate the addition of three new channels to its television network in conjunction with home shopping company Best One. A previous client of Imagine Communications, ZJTV turned once again to the live production and playout solutions manufacturer as it got set to launch the Best One channels.
‘Imagine Communications is well-known to us, and to the wider broadcast community in China, for its high-quality, reliable baseband video infrastructure products,’ explained Song Yang, director of engineering at ZJTV. ‘We knew that the technology would do what we needed to get the three Best One channels on air, and we received excellent support from Imagine Communications, as we always do.’
The installation reportedly provides the signal processing, monitoring and distribution capabilities needed for accurate frame synchronisation and conversion. It comprised a Platinum VX digital video router and Selenio 6800+ core processing and distribution platform. Selenio X100 Series infrastructure equipment was also implemented.
‘The reason that ZJTV turned to us for their core infrastructure is because we have a strong presence in China that provides responsive support for our market-leading products,’ said Joe Khodeir, senior vice president Asia Pacific at Imagine Communications. ‘We are pleased to have expanded our installation at ZJTV. For projects like this, we recognise our customers are looking for industry-proven quality and reliability, coupled with state-of-the-art functionality.’
