Omneon MediaDeck GX offers complete channel playout function
Omneon has released its new MediaDeck GX, a complete channel playout solution that combines video server playout with graphics and advanced audio processing, all of which operate under the control of an automation system. Offering rich branding and master control functionality, MediaDeck GX makes it easier and more affordable for broadcasters to launch new services or to make incremental additions to their existing channel lineup.
The MediaDeck GX system plays out stored stills and animations while enabling mixing and playout of voice-overs, promos and stingers, with optional encoding and decoding of AC-3 and Dolby E audio. Also among the system's branding and master control capabilities are wipes, fades, pushes and other transitions typical of presentation mixers, as well as dual DVEs for squeeze back and other DVE effects.
