MediaTech AfricaJasco Broadcast Solutions (Jasco), a broadcast technology provider, will be showcasing a variety of technology solutions for broadcasters of all sizes at MediaTech Africa 2015

At the event, Jasco will have numerous products on demonstration along with experts from each of the vendors who will answer questions about the products. Some of the products available are Avid Media Composer (version 8), Avid Interplay and Media Central, the latest offerings from Canon, ClearCom communication solutions, FrontPorch Digital Media Archiving solutions from Oracle, and VizRT graphics solutions.

One of the product highlights is the new Avid ISIS|1000 shared storage solution. It brings to small production teams the same collaborative power of other, more expensive Avid ISIS solutions. ISIS|1000 costs half the price of ISIS|5500 solution, Avid’s previous entry level shared storage solution. It offers a total of 16 TB usable storage in a single 2U rack mountable form factor, which is fully scalable for expansion as requirements grow. With 300 MB per second bandwidth per storage engine, the ISIS|1000 enables up to 24 editors, assistants and loggers to access and utilise the system simultaneously. It integrates fully with all other Avid solutions as well as third party editors like Adobe Premiere and Apple’s Final Cut Pro.

“As digital terrestrial television begins to see increased rollout, there will be an even greater demand for high quality local content. At the same time, technology has become more affordable and accessible to more people, further fuelling growth in this market. We are looking forward to showcasing our solutions for all sizes of broadcaster at MediaTech 2015, and particularly products geared toward enabling the growth and proliferation of smaller production houses,” said Paul Divall, managing director of broadcast solutions at Jasco Group.
