Imagine Communications Upgrades TNN's Digital Production Facility

News Image
Imagine Communications has implemented an end-to-end newsroom solution built around its Nexio® NewsForce™ platform for the Thai News Network (TNN), part of the True Corporation. TNN provides 24-hour rolling news coverage in the Thai language, both in Thailand and to international markets. It also broadcasts news and feature programming from CNN.

Working with local distributor B.E.C. Co. Ltd and systems integrator Advanced Broadcast Corporation, Imagine Communications implemented the major upgrade which also included central storage for ingest, asset management and playout on a Nexio Farad™ high-performance online storage network with intrinsic mirroring for content security. The project also involved the addition of Velocity™ editors, integrated alongside the existing Final Cut Pro edit suites. The workflow includes MOS playlist management, which will be integrated with TNN's newsroom computer network. Content infrastructure includes an Imagine Communications Platinum™ router, with an integrated Predator II-GX HD multiviewer for monitoring and control, and Selenio 6800+ and X50 signal processing including loudness control.

"Our original news platform was unreliable under pressure, so to expand our offerings we needed to look at a system that delivered complete robustness and stability," said Vichai Sernvongsat, chief technology officer, TNN. "Imagine Communications was able to demonstrate a complete solution from a single vendor, with reference sites doing just what we needed. This convinced us that they would be able to deliver the performance and reliability we sought, and to deliver against our tight timelines. The result goes beyond all our expectations."

"We have had a long and successful relationship with True Corporation, TNN's parent company," said Joe Khodeir, senior vice president, Asia Pacific, Imagine Communications. "We have delivered mission critical broadcast and online systems to the company, and they appreciate the quality and reliability of our first rate products and our strong commitment to in-region service and support. We are pleased to supply TNN with core technology that boosts their efficiency and ability to deliver more content to their digital TV audiences."

With the support B.E.C. Co. Ltd. and Advanced Broadcast Corporation, Imagine Communications was able to deliver technology allowing TNN to launch their new digital services within two months.
