Somoy TV Bangladeshi Channel selects Enterprise sQ for new 24 hour TV news channel

Calcutta, 22 October 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio): Somoy TV, the new Bangladeshi private broadcaster, has purchased a Quantel Enterprise sQ server based production system to power its 24 hour news service. Installation is underway and Somoy TV expects to launch in February 2011. The Enterprise sQ system was purchased through Quantel's regional reseller, Shaf Broadcast, who is also the System Integrator for the project.

"News is all about giving viewers up to the moment information attractively presented; our new Quantel system will allow us to do just that," said Somoy TV Managing Director, Ahmed Jobaer.

The Enterprise sQ system has 700 hours of storage and supports 16 sQ View and sQ Cut journalist editors which run as windows inside the station's ENPS newsroom computer desktops. In addition there are six sQ Edit craft editing seats, while effects editing will be handled by six Final Cut Pro systems which are fully integrated into the Quantel workflow. sQ Load provides file ingest facilities, and ingest and playout automation from Omnibus completes the system.
