Saudi TV installs Trilogy solution
As part of a massive digital upgrade project, the Saudi MoI has purchased a Trilogy system including a large Commander Digital Intercom Matrix, four Orator Digital TDM intercom systems and Trilogy Mentor Plus SPG/TSG's that will form the backbone of the station.
The Ministry of Information (MoI) in Saudi Arabia has purchased a system including a large Commander Digital Intercom Matrix, four Orator Digital TDM intercom systems and Trilogy Mentor Plus SPG/TSG's, from Trilogy Broadcast, providers of intercom/talkback, signal monitoring and SPG systems. The Trilogy installation, which will form the backbone of the station, is part of an extensive digital upgrade project undertaken by the MOI at the Saudi Television headquarters.
The system will be used for the first time this month when the station's digital upgrade is complete. After the initial purchase, the Saudi broadcaster placed an order for additional Commander and Orator equipment to enable it to launch an additional news channel that will link back to the intercom already supplied for the station's core.
Trilogy's Commander will provide a reliable digital audio matrix that will enable complete control of every cross point gain from PC or individual panels using powerful Windows-based configuration software with online options. Commander and Orator systems can be linked in any combination using audio trunks and intelligent data links.
Using DSP technology, the Mentor Plus, a flexible SPG/TSG package, will provide stability and accuracy with virtual jitter-free outputs in both free run and genlock operation; vital factors when operating sophisticated broadcast equipment.
"We are delighted to have been chosen as part of the Saudi Ministry of Information's digital upgrade project," says Roger Stanwell, managing director of Trilogy Broadcast. "We have supplied many systems in the region and our selection by this client further reinforces our standing as the class-leading supplier in the Middle East," he adds.
The equipment is being supplied and installed by Riyadh-based Modern Media Systems and UK systems integrator EML-TI.
