ABC Affiliates Deploy Omneon Spectrum Media Server
ABC affiliates WDAY-TV and WDAZ-TV have deployed the Omneon Spectrum Media Server. The new tapeless system will be used for playout of news, advertising and ABC programming at the Grand Forks and Fargo, N.D. stations.

The two stations have consolidated playout operations in an upgraded master control room--including the media server--but they broadcast from separate towers/transmitters within the Fargo market. News, weather and sports are tailored for each city.

The Omneon server system operates in conjunction with Sundance Digital Fastbreak Automation and the system at WDAY can store up to 0.5 TB of data.

"Along with Sundance automation, the system handles playout for both stations easily, enabling almost instant playout of IDs and last-minute topical insertions during news broadcasts," said Dave Johnson, WDAY engineer.
