Kathmandu-based media company Janata is opting to use a virtualised playout and asset management system from Imagine Communications for its television channel.

Imagine Janata Nexio Motion 17 Sept 2018The year-old 24-hour news and entertainment channel Janata (Hindi for ‘the people’s’) TV selected Imagine Communications to provide a ‘channel-in-a-box’ system that would be simple to maintain and develop in Nepal.

Imagine’s Nexio Motion asset management software and Versio integrated playout solution were selected, with Versio handling playout and providing the engine to design and drive workflows. The Versio software runs on COTS hardware.

We needed to implement a powerful and stable system,” said Laxman Humagain, general manager of Janata Television. “We also needed to get it installed and running without impeding our existing daily work. Imagine Communications offered not just a neat and powerful solution, but also a plan to implement it and get our staff trained and ready to go, with minimum disruption to our operations.”

Imagine Communications’ Mathias Eckert, SVP and GM EMEA and APAC, playout & networking, added: “This is our first Versio installation in Nepal, and we are proud to be working with Janata Television on this project. Our solution provided Janata with a user-friendly, effective and secure interface so staff could quickly become productive — developing their workflows and delivering great content to the audience across Nepal.”

Broadcast Technology Limited acted as the systems integrator for Janata Television.
