Prime Television, New Zealand adopt Omneon solution

January 25, 2005

Prime TV now has a central shared-storage platform that will enhance the network’s production workflow thanks to the SPECTRUM server from Omneon.
Auckland-based Prime Television has become the first New Zealand television broadcaster to invest in an Omneon SPECTRUM media server system. Quinto Communications, Omneon's partner in New Zealand, installed the new server system. It is being integrated into a Dalet-based current affairs production environment to enable creation of the new Paul Holmes program for national broadcast throughout New Zealand.

The media server system provides Prime with a central shared-storage platform that will enhance the network's production workflow significantly. As new material is ingested into server, those media assets become immediately available to journalists across the network.

The server provides Prime with a reliable and scalable infrastructure for broadcast playout and storage applications. The system's open architecture allows it to support a broad variety of third-party applications for control and transmission, media management, storage and collaborative production.
