UAE’s largest media group to utilise cost effective and user-friendly FLAMINGO DVB to IPTV Gateway solution
PRO TECHnology, a leading provider of communication, security and storage solutions, and Anevia, a leading vendor of next generation Video on Demand (VOD) and Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) head-end servers, have partnered to deploy a state-of-the-art IPTV solution within Abu Dhabi Media Corporation (ADMC). The implementation involved the implementation of cost effective and user-friendly Flamingo DVB to IP gateway solution, as part of the media group’s steps to upgrading its systems by introducing a reliable IPTV service in its headquarter.
As the Middle East’s pioneering multimedia organisation, ADMC has shifted to IPTV in a bid to leverage the advantages of the full-IP approach towards broadcasting. Through the Anevia’s FLAMINGO solution, ADMC can transmit encrypted or free to air digital channels available from satellite channels (DVB-S or DVB-S2), digital terrestrial TV (DVB-T), cable TV (DVB-C) or professional DVB equipment (DVB-ASI) in unicast or multicast mode over an IP network. By using easy-to-install and cost efficient professional DVB to IP gateways, ADMC can benefit from seamless TV channel monitoring and have 24/7 access throughout the building.
“We at Abu Dhabi Media Company always look for best international standards when it comes to Technology Innovations”, Abdul Hadi Al Sheikh, Chief Technology Officer at Abu Dhabi Media Company. He also added” We believe that implementing state of art and cutting edge technologies help us in efficiency and effectiveness towards our high quality services and products. The Anevia System will help our News Room and Editorial Team to be up to date watching latest news using IP Protocol Technology.”
“IP convergence is fast becoming the trend in the Middle Eastern broadcasting arena, as the region is continuously witnessing a massive technological revolution, which is driving manufacturers to develop modern technologies,” said Jamal Maraqa, Managing Director, PRO TECHnology. “This deployment of Anevia’s Flamingo solution marks the cornerstone for future developments related to site coverage and end-user usage for Abu Dhabi Media Corporation. Through this latest technology in IPTV, ADMC can now provide innovative features for high quality digital video delivery, thereby extending its capability to offer more worldwide TV channels.”
