TV Channel Launch Consultancy
TransCast Media provides a complete feasibility, guideline, Equipment Buying and Installation consultancy and services from a basic structure, costs and equipment required to produce a new 24 hour Television broadcast station. This is a commercial venture and the ideas put forward here are aimed at producing a high quality broadcast with a financially sustainable cost base which can be grown when necessary.
The technology required to build a broadcast station is easily available however the challenge of producing a new television station based in Pakistan is that of local broadcast engineering and experienced broadcasters. Training and development of local staff will be a priority and a number of engineering and broadcasting consultants will be required in the first year of operation to build this capacity.
There is currently a strong proliferation of satellite broadcasters in Pakistan with more than ninety established stations and a further 5-10 expected in Pakistan. In this competitive environment the quality of programming and committed financial backing is essential to position the channel in the premier league of the region’s broadcasters.
The control room, studio camera link up, encoder, amplifier and satellite dish would be sourced from a company either in the UK or Germany who specialize in fly-away outside broadcast units.
This means we know that the equipment in the critical ‘satellite transmission module’ will integrate together, has been tested before fly in and the engineers who arrive will be able to put it together within a matter of weeks and train staff. This procurement system also provides a one stop shop for servicing maintenance and trouble shooting.
