Chellomedia automates with OmniBus Colossus
Netherlands broadcaster Chellomedia has installed a Colossus automation system from OmniBus for playout of three new HD channels: the Film1 channel, the Sports1 channel and the National Geographic channel. The Colossus system ingests the HD content to Omneon servers using G3 Ingest, and uses Screen subtitling and Miranda logos in the playout.
Colossus is a timeline-based, multichannel, multidelivery automation and control system with tools for ingest, quality assurance, content management, workflow management and interfacing with archive systems. As a result, chellomedia will have the capability to ingest content from videotape locally, coding at either 30i or 50i.
