Ibrarn Television has chosen a PlayBox Technology channel-in-a-box platform for its new broadcast service, transmitting via satellite from the Libyan capital city, Tripoli. The project was managed by system integration specialist Libirel Communications Limited.
“A PlayBox Technology CIAB installation was the obvious choice for this new network,” comments Libirel Communications senior engineer Declan Goulding. “It enabled us to get Ibrarn to air quickly with a compact and fully self-contained solution. Ibrarn Television operates a 24/7 service so we have installed two complete systems in main and redundant configuration.”
Ibrarn TV’s live studio and file-based playback launched on November 2013, via a Eutelsat link to Nile Sat at 7 degrees west (H 11525), with a variety of content primarily in the Tamazight language. The network’s output to date has included live broadcast coverage from Paris of the International Conference on Libya.
