Crawford Communications launches new HD channels with OmniBus automation

Crawford Communications has expanded its OmniBus Colossus playout capability to provide HD transmission services. The expansion was completed in just a single day.

The newly upgraded system features fully redundant primary and backup channels with file transfer to and from video servers and archive storage. These transfers are managed by OmniBus Cache Manager and Workflow Manager software. It also provides traffic interfaces to the multiple client scheduling systems used at Crawford.

Crawford has used the SD version of Colossus since 2005 as a multiuse channel platform, running 26 networks. When it needed to provide its clients with HD capacity, the scalable Colossus architecture was the obvious choice.

The OmniBus Colossus multichannel automation system is a full-featured automated transmission system that can be used for schedule management, event building and transitions, timeline monitoring, live-event management and cache management.
