NY PBS Station Adopts SeaChange Video Server System
New York City public broadcaster Thirteen/WNET New York recently acquired a SeaChange Broadcast MediaCluster digital video server to deliver programming to viewers in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Thirteen stated that it chose the SeaChange system for its ability to deliver video for SDTV and HDTV.

Thirteen's Broadcast MediaCluster 1654 will store over 2,050 hours (at 8 Mbps) in a fault-resilient configuration of clustered servers comprised of 180-GB disk drives. In order to support Thirteen's HDTV efforts, the BMC is configured with SeaChange's ASI Transport Stream cards, which allow HD content to be recorded onto the same cluster that is simultaneously storing and playing SDTV.

Thirteen/WNET is a major program provider for public television nationwide.
