To ensure safety of media data, to improve performance and amount of operational storages of software, news and archival complexes, and also to increase an opportunity to support high-definition production formats.

To increase technical broadcasting quality, to improve performance and functionality of equipment ingest, montage and quality control.

To create competitive contents, with the use of advanced technologies when shooting television programs, series and movies.

The Project Description

The concept of development and modernization of the technological systems of the complex has consisted of the following criteria.

1. During the operation of the technological systems of the complex the following facts have been specified:

- During its design this complex has been equipped with a basic set of hardware and software facilities. The TV channels based in Kazmedia Ortalygy have their own specific broadcasting format (news, entertaining, information, etc.). As a result, Kazmedia Ortalygy has faced a task on extending and increasing the complex’s functionality. This task includes the signal digitization system and ingest of media data, system of operational and long-term storage of media data (content), system of graphical broadcasting form, etc.;

- No systems of planning of broadcasting schedules for the TV channels are provided;

- No customer relationship management system is provided;

- No system on automation of the process of quality control of media data is provided. At the moment, the staff of the TV channels waste the time equal to the duration of media data when they perform visual quality inspections;

- No reservation of the Dalet news broadcasting automation system is provided;

- No show light for programs production studios is provided;

- Disadvantages of the installed Pharos Mediator broadcasting automation system, namely the "closeness" of the system when all levels of technical support are provided only by the manufacturer have been identified;

- The virtual studio does not work at its full capacity due to the need to replace the tracking system;

- Optimization of technological processes when creating news and programs;

- Modernization of the movie and concert complex;

- Modernization of the radio complex.

2. Equipment Deterioration

The existing equipment was installed in 2011 and was put into operation at the beginning of 2012. Therefore by 2017 the equipment will work for 6 years while the service life of the modern hardware-software systems is not more than 5 years.

3. Strategic Planning of Development of the Complex.

For the purpose of resolving creative and economic (business) tasks, there is a need to introduce the following systems:

- Replacement of lamp devices with LED devices for decreasing energy costs;

- A green screen;

- A dubbing-in and Dolby Surround audio mixing studio;

- Film production, including cameras, lenses, light;

- Post-production for the film industry.

Expected Activities

Provision of high-quality services in the following directions:
