Omneon system helps secure cultural treasures for Lithuanian broadcaster

Lithuania's national broadcaster, LRT, has selected Omneon’s Spectrum media server system as the foundation of a project that has moved the broadcaster to a tapeless workflow. In addition to supporting playout on LRT's three broadcast channels, the Spectrum system provides ingest for LRT's comprehensive digital archive of Lithuania's culturally significant media assets, which include TV programming dating back to the early 1950s and even older, irreplaceable film footage. Low-resolution browse copies of the entire archive, estimated to comprise about 35,000 hours, will be available to the public via the Web.

The Spectrum system at LRT encodes and stores video in MXF OP1a MPEG-2 4:2:2 at 50Mb/s. Under direction of SGT automation, files are transferred to and from archive storage in a data tape library with disk-based cache storage and made available to Apple Final Cut Pro workstations for editing. The Spectrum system is also used for automated playout of LRT's three broadcast channels.
