Omneon Wins Two NAB2005 AIM AwardsOmneon Spectrum Media Server recognized as top content management solution (May 11, 2005)
Omneon Video Networks has received two more prestigious honors for its Omneon Spectrum media server, the NAB2005 AIM Award and the NAB2005 AIM Editors' Choice Award, following the company's successful showing at the NAB2005 Conference & Exhibition in April. The Omneon Spectrum, with its flexible and scalable architecture, uniquely addresses the needs of broadcasters in the digital television era to manage the storage and playout of massive amounts of digital content.
The National Association of Broadcaster's Awards for Innovation in Media (AIM) program allows NAB show attendees to recognize pioneering technologies that display significant advancement through boosting efficiency, increasing user flexibility and creativity, or lowering cost. As one of the five companies receiving the highest number of attendee votes in the content management category during the annual AIM program, Omneon Video Networks received AIM recognition for its Omneon Spectrum media server system during the NAB Technology Luncheon.
"As the professionals who are using broadcasting technologies day in and day out, NAB attendees are in a unique position to recognize the hottest products emerging into the marketplace," said NAB President and CEO Edward O. Fritts. "The NAB would like to extend its congratulations to all of the 2005 AIM winners who received this esteemed recognition."
In selecting the recipients of the NAB2005 AIM Editors' Choice Award, a panel of editors from 14 key industry publications reviewed the NAB2005 AIM-winning technologies and other new products exhibited at the show. The Omneon Spectrum was selected by the editorial panel as the show's preeminent technology within the area of content management.
"Our mission always has been to provide broadcasters with flexible and scalable server systems that integrate easily into efficient digital workflows, and we're honored that show attendees and industry experts have recognized the Omneon Spectrum for achieving this goal," said Geoff Stedman, vice president of marketing at Omneon Video Networks. "The tremendous attention our Omneon Spectrum server system garnered at this year's NAB convention reflects the success of the product throughout the global broadcast market and opens the door to exciting new opportunities in the future."
Omneon's server system is built on an open architecture that allows it to support a broad variety of third-party applications for control and transmission, media management, archiving, and collaborative production. As a result, stored media can be shared among many users and applications. The scalable, distributed architecture of the modular Omneon Spectrum server system also offers users maximum flexibility in scaling system components and capacity in small or large increments as desired. The system is available in a broad range of configurations to meet the specific needs of each installation.
NAB2005 took place April 16-21 in Las Vegas, with an exhibition that started on April 18. The NAB spring convention is the world's largest electronic media show covering the development, delivery, and management of professional video and audio content across all mediums.
