Ciner Group Turkey Deploys PRO180

Case study
News Gathering

Ciner Group, one of Turkey’s leading media groups, has deployed its PRO180-RA transmitters, StreamHub receiver platforms, and MoJoPro smartphone application for use across the country, including the Syria, Iran, and Iraq borders.

By providing Ciner Group with a compact, lightweight digital mobile newsgathering solution with a quick boot time, AVIWEST gives the media group and its TV services (including Show TV, Haberturk, and BloombergHT) increased agility and flexibility, enhancing its news coverage.

Prior to choosing AVIWEST, we performed a comprehensive test and comparison of all the bonded cellular solutions available on the market. The AVIWEST DMNG system quickly proved its capabilities and reliability, allowing us to flawlessly capture high-quality live HD video over any network from a variety of locations within the country, as well as around the world.

The most portable Solution

“The transmitters at the heart of AVIWEST’s PRO180-RA and the MoJoPro smartphone application emerged as the most portable solution, allowing us to cover live news ahead of the competition and never miss an important shot,” added Baturlap Ozdemir, satellite transmission manager at Ciner Group.

Versatility of the video uplink systems

The Turkish media group is using the StreamHub servers to receive and decode all incoming streams delivered from the field units. The application features an intuitive web user interface that optimizes the monitoring of the video transmissions with a large panel of features, such as video thumbnails, statistics, and dynamic bit rate and latency control. The versatility of the video uplink systems and their reliable connections to the servers give Ciner Group a large range of maneuvers to achieve the objective of any news coverage situation.

“By replacing its previous news gathering system with a more complete and powerful solution that meets all of the company’s technical requirements, Ciner Group has significantly expanded its news coverage capabilities,” said Cyril Hamelin, areas sales manager at AVIWEST. “AVIWEST’s solution allows the group to provide viewers with a broader range of high-quality video content.”
