Kuwait TV wins BroadcastPro award for EVS and Tedial asset management installation

State-run television station workflow named Broadcast Project of the Year after becoming the first to deploy joint solution

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 15 November 2017 – Kuwait TV - the official state-run television station of Kuwait – has won the Editor’s Choice award for Broadcast Project of the Year at the BroadcastPro Summit and Awards 2017. It was given the title after a new production installation which includes an integrated live asset management solution from EVS.

Operated by the Kuwaiti Ministry of Information, Kuwait TV produces and broadcasts content across its eight TV channels and deployed the joint system to intrinsically link its EVS IPDirector production asset management system and live video production workflow to its long-term archive management system from Tedial.

“This award is very important to us – it recognizes the hard work of the people that were instrumental in putting together our new state of the art content production workflow,” said Meshal Al-Makled, Undersecretary for Technical Affairs of the Ministry of Information of the State of Kuwait who was present to accept the award. “We chose to install this joint solution because the interoperability of our systems was so important. The support we’ve also received from EVS in deploying this system has been outstanding – they’re both great organizations to be partnered with and I’d like to thank them for their part in this pioneering project.”

The bi-directional link is part of a new production workflow installed by Kuwaiti SI, INC System Integrations. During live productions, content is ingested by more than 20 EVS XS series servers and users can quickly and efficiently send live assets such as replays, highlights and clips from IPDirector directly into Tedial’s Evolution. Quickly moving content in this way immediate frees up valuable storage space on the EVS servers.

During post-production, users can search the archive for assets and metadata – including EVS logs – and fully restore media back into the EVS system so it can be easily used in any other programming. The solution joins together the speed and reliability of EVS live production technology with a secure MAM infrastructure. It removes unnecessary additional steps from the production workflow and allows its operators to manage content more easily and efficiently.

Part of the BroadcastPro ME Summit & Awards, the ceremony took place at the Habtoor Grand in Dubai and is run to promote and celebrate excellence in the broadcast and satellite industry across the MENA region.
