REFERENCE PROJECTS

We focus on the real issues and challenges of our clients regardless of the scale of the project.

 

ASTANA MEDIA CENTRE

TURNKEY MEDIA CENTER

This huge complex is one of the biggest media centers in the world. The challenge was to integrate systems and set new standards in control, orchestration and delivery. This included unique features such as the world’s largest permanent external LED video walls.

THE AKFA SOLUTION
An extraordinary approach performed flawlessly, exceeding expectations in an extremely challenging timeframe. The quality of the installation was fast and smooth. Cutting edge technology was applied so that a future-proof production environment was established successfully. Not only the newest and best quality products and solutions were delivered, but we also provided an exceptional project team who remained on site to materialize an impressive media facility. Last minute design and contract changes on the part of the customer created usage and timeline tensions for the end users. However commissioning, training and handover of this huge media complex was so professionally planned and executed that customer concerns ended in deep satisfaction for a job well done. The experience of our hard-working technicians and engineers proved all the difference.

VALUE TO THE CLIENT
All work was completed on time and on budget. We remain on-site with the service and maintenance of equipment on a day-to-day basis. Various systems installed in different sections of this huge media facility needed months of intensive training for a substantial number of people. Our staff created specialized programs and schedules to meet the many end user needs. All these successes have helped the Astana Media Centre set new global standards for integrated systems in ICT, broadcasting and multimedia.
