Raj TV, a new 24-hour TV news channel in Chennai, India, confirmed Sept. 9 that it would deploy ENPS as its newsroom computer system.
The deal, closed at IBC2007 in Amsterdam, makes the broadcaster the seventh station in India to choose the Associated Press software. It follows in the footsteps of Doordarshan, the world’s biggest terrestrial broadcaster, also in India . The station, which will broadcast exclusively in Tamil, plans to go live by the end of this year.
Other components of the Raj TV newsroom will include OmniBus, Omneon, Orad and Apple Final Cut Pro editing. A regional rollout is being discussed and is expected in early 2008.
