Spescom Media IT has won a contract in excess of R30-million to redesign and upgrade three studios for state broadcaster Namibia TV, and provide it with new electronic news gathering camera equipment and kits.
Sean du Toit, MD of Spescom Media IT, comments: "The 30 Sony hybrid disk-based ENG cameras are for Namibia TV's News and Sport division. They will ensure a fast migration to a tapeless environment for the broadcaster, delivering all the speed and post production efficiencies that the digital format offers.
"The studio commissions are for the design and furnishing of a new News studio and upgrading the existing News and Magazine. Equipment will include cameras, lighting, a vision mixer, character generator, teleprompter and more."
More than two decades in the broadcast industry has garnered Spescom Media IT a reputation for excellence in solution provision and integration – and the capability to deliver turnkey solutions that address all the critical segments of the broadcast value chain, including production, post production and television broadcasting.
"Spescom Media IT has a long-standing relationship with Namibia Broadcasting Corporation," says Du Toit. "We not only supply and implement relevant technology and equipment, but offer services such as consultation, design, planning, workflow analysis, project management, training, support and maintenance. Our solutions and services furthermore address a wide scope of activities, including acquisition and production for electronic news-gathering, in-studio applications, post-production and presentation.
