Oman TV Center in Muscat

Tedial, a leading provider of Media Asset Management (MAM), Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM) and Business Process Management (BPM) software, has today announced that Sultanate of Oman TV has signed a contract with Sony Professional Solutions for a large Tedial MAM system. Oman TV has selected Tedial to manage the digital archive and production workflows for its new HD-tapeless system.

Tedial has partnered with Sony to supply a solution for this large-scale project under the supervision of technical consultants Masters. Work has already begun on the implementation of full HD production in the main Oman TV sites - one in Muscat and the other in Salalah. Although both facilities provide independent production and transmission services they will be fully integrated by Tedial’s technology, delivering a single virtual system that’s able to share media and act as mirror for disaster recovery purposes.

Mohammed Al Marhouby, Oman TV Director General of Engineering says, “This state-of-the-art installation is a big investment for Oman TV and will provide a reference for other broadcasters in the region. We have worked hard to ensure that we’ve selected the best systems.”


Rafael Dubois, Tedial’s Sales Director adds, “The aim of Oman TV is to install one of the most advanced and efficient HD-based tapeless solutions in the world. As such it was not prepared to compromise on any aspect demanding only the very best technology. Following a long and comprehensive selection process we are delighted that Oman TV selected Tedial as the best fit for its goals.”

About Sultanate of Oman Television

Sultanate of Oman Television began broadcasting for the first time from Muscat on 17th November 1974 and separately from Salalah on 25th November 1975. On 1st June 1979, the two stations at Muscat and Salalah were joined by satellite link to form a unified broadcasting service. Oman TV's broadcasts are transmitted through a network of stations spread across the country in both populated and remote areas to overcome the natural obstacles created by the mountainous terrain.
