Omneon Server Supports FLO TV
MediaFLO USA, a division of Qualcomm, is now using an Omneon Spectrum media server from Omneon Video Networks to support FLO TV operations. MediaFLO is using a multichannel, fully mirrored server system to accommodate ingest, delay and play-out of content for FLO TV’s live channels. The Spectrum server also handles play-out of interstitial material.

“We wanted to build an efficient, reliable automated system, offering high availability with maximum monitoring and control as core design criteria,” said Tom Mikkelsen, senior director of operations at MediaFLO USA. “Because of our commitment to meeting rigorous reliability standards, we valued proven technologies from best-of-breed vendors. The Omneon Spectrum server system fit perfectly into our plan for this unique and innovative
application.”

FLO TV’s Spectrum server incorporates Omneon’s ProBrowse system for creating proxies on material on all channels for viewing on desktop computers by the FLO TV production team.
