Radio TV West Selects Omneon Spectrum Server System

Spectrum Server supports ingest, media management, and playout (April 07, 2005)

Radio TV West, a regional radio and television broadcaster serving southwestern Holland, has purchased an Omneon Spectrum server system for ingest, media management, transcoding, and round-the-clock playout of programming. The four-channel Omneon server system also supports post-production for Radio TV West's local news and feature stories.

"We chose to install an Omneon video server along with our Building4Media automation solution because it integrates easily with other broadcast systems and has a good performance record in similar storage and playout applications," said Joris van Dam, head technician of TV operations for Radio TV West. "The Omneon Spectrum offers good value and the reliability we need for continuous on-air operations, and it provides versatile format support that allows us to take full advantage of the proven QuickTime standard."

Installed in Radio TV West's Den Haag, Netherlands, facility, the Omneon server is controlled by FORK content delivery software supplied by Building4Media. With the high degree of scalability and data-type independence offered by the Omneon Spectrum, Radio TV West can use Building4Media software with collaborative editing tools to create and deliver entertainment-grade content for broadcast transmission or streaming via the Internet.

An exceptionally cost-effective and flexible media server designed for the professional television industry, the Omneon Spectrum provides a reliable and scalable infrastructure for broadcast playout and storage applications. The system's open architecture enables support of a broad variety of third-party applications for control and transmission, media management, archiving, and collaborative production.

The scalable, distributed architecture of the Radio TV West Omneon Spectrum delivers a modular system with maximum flexibility that will allow the Dutch broadcast station to build system components and capacity in small or large increments as necessary.
