Saudi TV, Long-Time Ensemble Customer, Takes Delivery of Avenue Routers
Grass Valley, California, 22 February 2013 – Saudi TV, the government-owned television broadcast service in Saudi Arabia, has taken delivery of three Avenue Flexible Matrix Routers. The routers will be installed at Saudi TV’s network center in Riyadh.
Chief Engineer Hassan Salamah has made extensive use of Ensemble equipment at Saudi TV for many years. When the network’s broadcast center in Jeddah was converted from analog to SDI nearly ten years ago, Salamah chose Ensemble as his primary supplier of distribution and processing equipment. More recently, he has relied on Ensemble equipment to support the construction of state-of-the-art 3GB/sec-capable HD systems at the network center in Riyadh.
Salamah made the decision to purchase the Ensemble routers for a variety of reasons. First and foremost was his positive impression of the company’s products and service. Product features that impressed him the most are the flexible I/O structure of the matrix, the ability of the control surfaces to display thumbnail previews, and the availability of a clean switch option.
The routers will be used in a variety of different applications in Riyadh, including a small master control suite and a mobile studio.
