Pebble Beach systems’ channel-in-a-box solution, Stingray, seamlessly integrates into Bahrain TV’s existing technical infrastructure, allowing the broadcaster to expand its offering without affecting the current workflow.
Pebble Beach Systems has announced that the Bahrain state broadcaster, Ministry of Information Affairs (MIA) has elected to deploy Pebble Beach Systems’ Stingray, a compact channel-in-a-box solution, for the launch of its new history channel.
A long-time user of Pebble Beach Systems’ Neptune automation system for their main channels, MIA’s single channel fully redundant Stingray system has now been on air for a number of weeks.
Stingray leverages Pebble Beach Systems’ automation and integrated channel technology to deliver a channel-in-a-box solution for systems of up to six channels.
In addition to hosting clip-based channels, it can handle reactive channels featuring live content, late-breaking changes and dynamic schedules.
Also, multiple channels can be controlled from a single operator position, and user privileges and access to specific functionality can be set on a per channel basis.
Commenting on the development, Samir Isbaih, VP of Sales for Middle East and APAC, said: “Stingray seamlessly integrates into Bahrain TV’s existing technical infrastructure, allowing the broadcaster to expand its offering without affecting the current workflow. Stingray also gives them a platform to test new technology on this channel before migrating their existing infrastructure on to their planned state of the art ‘Development of TV Channels Broadcast and Automation System’ implementation platform.”
