Megahertz, Kit digital, CABSAT2011
KIT digital, Inc. and its recently acquired business, Megahertz Broadcast Systems Ltd (MHz), an international systems integrator, will showcase the companys combined broadcast systems integrations services and IP-based solutions for the first time at CABSAT2011. (Stand no. S1-F42, Sheikh Saeed 3 Hall).
Megahertz is one of the most respected providers in the advanced digital video systems integration arena and has a wealth of expertise, particularly in the Middle East, with successful installation implemented at both fixed and mobile television facilities across the region, said Kaleil Isaza Tuzman, chairman and CEO at KIT digital.
KIT digital offers a complete end-to-end solution in the IP-delivery arena which together with the combined acquisition of Singapore-based Benchmark Broadcast Systems and Megahertz last year, gives us a truly global footprint for the deployment of high-end systems integration for major broadcasters and network operators.
With some of the leading brand names in the Middle East and Africa as repeat clients including, Al Jazeera, ART in Jordan, Kuwait Television, Oman Television, Qatar Television & Radio and e.tv in South Africa MHz continues to be seen by many global media companies as a reliable partner that helps to minimise the risk of deploying new technology.
KIT understands the ever changing needs of consumer demands for the ability to access content anywhere, any time and on any device and delivers IP-based solutions to meet these demands, said Frances Jarvis, managing director of Megahertz.
In recent times, Megahertz has seen a greater integration of IP technologies across broadcast installations that enable improved workflow efficiencies, particularly in DSNGs. We have already helped broadcasters drive cost reduction through the implementation of improved mobile satellite systems, increased data throughput and lower power requirements offered by IP-based technology thereby making DSNG facilities more accessible to smaller news operations.
With our combined business expertise, Megahertz and KIT are able to guide customers through the ever-changing media environment to enable them to pursue new revenue streams and deploy technology solutions throughout the content chain and truly bridge the gap between traditional broadcast and new media, claimed Jarvis.
