telecomasia.net, 19 Oct 2015: “Ideal Systems has fully delivered CNN Indonesia‚Äôs turnkey 24-hour newsroom solution ahead of the official launch on Indonesian National Day, broadcasting in full 1080i HD through Transvision. The channel launch was a collaboration between CNN International and CT Corp Indonesia, a diverse business corporation with core operations in media and entertainment. Ideal was the prime systems integrator tasked with designing and building the new facility located at the Trans Corp headquarters in Jakarta. CNN Indonesia is an Indonesian-language news channel with 80% of content generated locally and 20% coming from CNN International.” KIM: CNN branded news channels outside the United States, in languages other than English, are generally domestic companies with license to use the CNN name and some CNN content. They do have to comply with media regulations and restrictions in the country, so are not “international broadcasting” in the strictest sense. Transvision is a multichannel television platform using both cable and DTH satellite. Indonesia’s next National Day is August 17, 2016.
