OmniBus to migrate Starz Entertainment to iTX transmission system

Starz Entertainment will migrate to the OmniBus iTX transmission system later this year. Both the main Starz facility in Englewood, CO, and its nearby disaster-recovery backup operation will be converted to run on OmniBus iTX.

Starz decided to upgrade its legacy SD and HD transmission infrastructure with iTX to replace soon-to-be unsupported video servers. Starz will use iTX to duplicate its existing operations in nearly every respect, replacing multiple outbound hardware and software systems, such as the video server, automation, graphics device and logo inserter, by combining all these functions in a single suite of software applications. The ability to reduce the hardware footprint and the error potential that sometimes occurs with multiple systems greatly influenced the broadcaster’s decision.

Eleven FCC Scenarios for The 600 MHz Band Plan
I suspect that the estimated $44 billion of auction proceeds do not take into account the fact that some spectrum the FCC will buy cannot be resold because it must be used as guard intervals in the 600 MHz band plan.~ Charles W. Rhodes
