Omneon migrates to QuickTime

January 13, 2005

Omneon's New MigrateTool simplifies the integration of Omneon server systems by streamlining conversion of previously ingested material to the QuickTime format.

The company released its new MigrateTool software for the conversion of legacy video server formats to the open QuickTime format used by Omneon. MigrateTool simplifies the integration of the Omneon SPECTRUM media server system into production and playout workflows by giving users the means to translate and work with previously ingested material easily.

Because the MigrateTool software preserves metadata and vertical interval data stored in each individual clip, broadcasters can convert their media assets quickly and easily, without time-consuming data entry or management. Automatic re-wrapping of media to the Omneon format may be set for any clip transferred to a designated folder or directory. Archive systems simply restore archived clips to the appropriate folder, and MigrateTool will automatically translate the file and transfer it to a directory specified by the user. This direct translation helps broadcasters transition to file-based workflows without compromise.
