Astana Builds Production & Playout With Harmonic's Media Server

Kazakhstan’s ultra-modern Astana media center builds production and playout on Harmonic media server and storage platform.

Looking for reliable Playout and Storage

A major broadcaster in the U.S. required a cost-effective and efficient solution for delivering local channels from all 190 of its affiliates to MVPDs for OTT purposes. The solution would be used for the insertion of unique station data (SCTE signalling) for rights management, blackouts and local ad insertion, and must deliver exceptional video quality.

The Play-by-Play

Harmonic provided AMC with media servers supporting ingest and playout, as well as a centralized and secure media storage solution that handles all media formats edited within the facility. The high bandwidth of the Harmonic MediaGrid central storage system ensures that editors and other users can access stored content quickly.

The flexibility and interoperability of the facility’s new Spectrum media servers ensure support for all incoming content and internally produced programming, and the systems’ scalability enables easy reconfiguration to meet the demands of current and future tasks.
