Kuala Lumpur - ATG Broadcast of the UK is extending cooperation with its Malaysia partner, integrator Digistar Corporation into a a more committed arrangement to jointly offer combined service to digital television networks and production facilities in the Asia-Pacific region.
The move follows a successful venture of working together on the construction of the new 65-channel ASTRO Broadcast Centre in Cyberjaya, Malaysia.
ATG engineers designed all the broadcast areas including satellite downlinking, 50 incoming lines, tape ingest, a compliance editing and versioning area, a multi-channel transmission area and reactive transmission suites for locally originated channels plus a master control room (MCR) capable of monitoring up to 96 output channels.
For its part, Digistar engineers and wiremen then installed the systems and assisted the ATG engineers with testing and commissioning.
The ATG partnership choice was based on the proven competence and experience of Digistar.
In 2005, Digistar completed a TV news automation project for Radio Television Malaysia. This, says ATG is the largest news automation installation in the entire region.
