Sharjah Radio orders dira! archive-extension

SCISYS has received an order from Sharjah Media Corporation for an archive-extension to the existing dira! radio system.

Dr. Khalid Al Midfa, Director of Sharjah Radio and TV, says:

“Our experience with our recent dira! installation has been very good, so we are very confident that the important archive-extension will be a success and will be delivered on time this summer and to budget.”

The new, extended audio archive will be completely integrated into the dira! workflow and will also facilitate future services such as “on demand-audio” available through web platforms.

The system will include 72TB storage in redundant configuration for more than 40,000 hours of audio and two archive-production workstations and will seamlessly integrate into the radio production environment. A key criterion for the implementation of the archive extension is a maximum reliability of the solution for protecting the growing audio heritage of the Emirate Sharjah.

The order follows the successful implementation of the dira! radio production and playout system for Sharjah Radio that went on air in summer 2011, only 10 weeks after the order was placed.
