First HD news station for Pakistan
Channel 92 will become the first HD news broadcaster in Pakistan next month, thanks to a partnership between owners Galaxy Broadcasting and technology manufacturer Harris Broadcast.
The station is based in Lahore and will be on air in August 2013.
Channel 92 has taken a leap in technology, with its central infrastructure in the newsroom and studio being designed & based on Harris Broadcast solutions, with content being managed and transmitted using the NEXIO MOS playlist manager.
“Channel 92 is an important venture for us and a dramatic step forward in news broadcasting in Pakistan,” said Mian Mohammed Rasheed, CEO of Galaxy Broadcasting. “Our aim is to get on air as quickly as possible, and for that we needed a technology supplier who could demonstrate all the skills to build a system that is intuitive to operate as well as ensuring long-term reliability. Harris Broadcast gave us that confidence, particularly with a strong local presence in Pakistan.” He added.
