Doordarshan Selects OmniBus for News Automation

To provide Indian state broadcaster, with news automation and broadcast content management (October 12, 2005)

OmniBus Systems, the award-winning provider of broadcast automation and asset management solutions, announced at IBC that it will provide Doordarshan, the Indian state broadcaster, with news automation and broadcast content management for a new, server-based, news system to be installed in its new headquarters in New Delhi.

The system will provide journalists with integrated desktop search and edit functions, running inside the AP ENPS journalist workstations. Media content can be viewed and manipulated even as it is still recording, allowing stories to be created and played to air in a very rapid and efficient manner from the OmniBus News Playout suite. OmniBus will also provide all the machine and broadcast device management to enable complex MOS rundowns created in the newsroom computer system to be played out effortlessly, while retaining frame accuracy for all primary, secondary, and tertiary events scheduled within any item in the MOS playlist.

Mr. Ganessan, engineer-in-chief of Doordarshan, delivered the order to OmniBus on its IBC2005 exhibition stand on Sept. 11. He said, "Doordarshan is very pleased to give this order to OmniBus and their Indian partners, Shaf Broadcast Pvt. Ltd, who will act as system integrator for the project. This will be the second project that OmniBus and Shaf have completed for Doordarshan, having installed a transmission suite at the C.P.C. site three years ago. We have a long and successful relationship with OmniBus and Shaf and hope it continues for many years to come."

"OmniBus is proud to be part of this prestigious project for Doordarshan, and further strengthens our commitment to Doodarshan and the Indian market as a whole," said Iain Wood, sales manager of OmniBus Systems.
