For Paxson, the server provides on-air programming and commercial content for 12 digital streams, main programming feeds and also backhaul channels, for delivery via satellite to 60 Paxson O&O's. The Omneon server at Paxson has 10 inputs and 20 outputs, with both main and backup systems for a fully mirrored operation. Each systems has just over 8 TB capacity, or 1,200 hours of playout at 10 Mbps. The Spectrum operates with Harris automation and Masstech asset management software and is expected to go live by the end of 2005.
