TV7 Bulgarian Purchases Quantel NewsboxStart-up broadcaster kicks off with Quantel?s ?news system in a box? (August 22, 2005)
Sofia, Bulgaria-based TV7 has installed a Quantel Newsbox as a key component of its brand new broadcasting operation.
The system TV7 has chosen is a Newsbox Four which includes ingest and playout automation, 110 hours of MPEG 2 30Mbit broadcast and browse storage, a built-in ISA database, six sQ Cut and four sQ Edit journalist editors, one sQ Edit Plus craft editor, a Paintbox for graphics creation, the network switch and 5 years of Quantels comprehensive QCare support.
TV7 Managing Director, Rumen Artarski, said, ?Our aim is to be Sofias first choice for keeping up to date with whats going on both locally and internationally, and news and current affairs will obviously play a vital role in this. The Newsbox is perfect for our needs.
?When youre building a new operation from scratch, you dont need engineering nightmares, continues Artarski. ?The Newsbox is a complete system yet it comes ready built and tested so its ready to go as soon as we are. Its also brilliantly easy to learn and use, yet very powerful in what it can do. And finally, because its ?off the shelf, the price is within the range that a small TV station such as ours can afford but still has all the facilities we will need in the future to meet our much larger ambitions.
TV7 plans to begin broadcasting in September 2005. The Newsbox will be used for the breakfast show, creating and updating regular news bulletins throughout the day, the main 7pm news, a 9pm magazine programme and at weekends for sports programming as well. ?We will certainly be making the most of our Newsbox! concludes Artarski.
