ISOL Selects Ateme Kyrion CM5000 Encoder for News Coverage in Lebanon
[Via Satellite 12-12-13] ISOL, a satellite service provider in Lebanon, has selected Ateme’s Kyrion CM5000 for its Digital Satellite News Gathering (DSNG) operations.
ISOL, stationed in Beirut, operates its own fleet of NSNG vehicles and fly-aways. Its clients include domestic and international news broadcasters such as Al Arabiya, Sky News Arabic, CNN, Al Hourra and the BBC. The encoder includes satellite modulation to save costs and space, along with features to simplify field operations, reduce setup time and minimize risks of configuration errors.
“At ISOL, we often operate under extreme pressure, whether in Lebanon, or when covering news in other Middle East countries. We found the Ateme encoders and decoders to be very well designed for our day-to-day race against time, effectively saving us precious minutes when we need them,” said Houssam Mansour, head of broadcast operations, ISOL.
