Al Aan TV selects Harris Broadcast for HD transition

Al Aan TV, the Dubai-based free-to-air satellite TV network, has adopted a new end-to-end, file-based HD broadcast solution from Harris Broadcast to support its phased migration to HD.

Al Aan has expanded on its existing video servers with a network of Harris Broadcast HD/SD Nexio server and storage solutions, along with Nexio Motion intelligent media movement software. The fully integrated, end-to-end media content management and channel playout solution will enable Al Aan to centralise the entire content lifecycle, automate labour-intensive processes and repurpose content for multiple delivery platforms.

“Our decision to select the Harris Broadcast servers and software stems back to the first-rate experience I had while at Jordan Media City, and I could see that the latest solution developments offered the best specifications and workflows for the project at Al Aan,” said Raad Haddadin, head of technical at Al Aan.
