Ethiopian Ministry of Innovation and Technology (MiNT) Studio


The Ethiopian Ministry of Innovation and Technology (MiNT) in Addis Ababa, required a studio and production centre to generate original content for its own satellite and web streaming channel.

C2S installed a turnkey system of studio and post-production facilities as well as a satellite transmission system.

A mix of Sony Broadcast Cameras and Panasonic PTZ cameras operate in a studio with Full cyclorama, green screen and white screen lit by up to 60 x Canara lights; the grid, lights, and screens all installed by C2S.

A Ross Carbonite vision switcher and Studer audio mixer along with CG, Teleprompter, wired and wireless audio systems and Intercom support the studio operation. Ross openGear Infrastructure and a NK series router provide the signal handling and processing.

8 x Adobe editing stations are linked to redundant Promax storage, and Harmonic Mediadeck systems are used for recording and playout of both studio content and final transmission via a 3.8M fixed dish.
