News Image
Automation, content management and integrated channel providers Pebble Beach Systems has announced at BroadcastAsia that it has been awarded the contract to supply a 16-channel Marina automation system, complete with Japanese language user interface, to Aruji TV.

The system is the first from Pebble Beach Systems to be supplied to Japan, and will be installed at the broadcaster’s Tokyo playout centre by Pebble Beach Systems’ partner in Japan, Kondo Broadcast.
Kondo’s Managing Director Nobuyuki Kondo explains: "Aruji TV’s 16 channels feature clip-based content and also carry live and recorded sports coverage, and their automation upgrade was driven by the need for better playlist management and greater reliability on air. Marina delivers comprehensive playlist editing and creation tools, together with the resilience and functionality they were looking for. Control of all their channels will migrate to Marina over the next four months. This is the first Marina system to be delivered to Japan, and we are confident that there is significant potential for further expansion in this highly competitive and quality-conscious market."
The system features full redundancy, with media synchronised between main and backup servers. It will control Miranda LGK logo inserters, XOR-media servers, and a Harris router, and is supplied with four multi-functional clients to handle scheduled record and file-based media ingest and dubbing, together with playout control. In order to facilitate the transition to Marina control, Pebble Beach Systems will be importing playlists and migrating the database from Aruji’s legacy automation system.
Pebble Beach Systems’ Marina automation currently controls in excess of 300 channels at leading broadcasters and service providers worldwide. The system is designed to manage legacy products and platforms as well as emerging solutions such as channel-in-a-box technologies within video, IT and hybrid infrastructures, and can adapt to new workflows using web services and software plug-ins.
