Raj Television moves to tapeless with Omneon

The southern Indian broadcaster Raj Television Network, which delivers news and entertainment programming for the Tamil community, has deployed the Omneon Spectrum media server for multichannel SD broadcasting, including four-channel ingest and six-channel playout. The move means Raj Television can now store as much as 10 days or 500 hours of programming as digital files rather than on videotape, enabling automated playout with corresponding improvements to efficiency, reliability and broadcast quality.

At Raj Television, the Spectrum systems interface with AP ENPS for newsgathering, Apple Final Cut Pro for editing and Orad DVG for 3-D graphics and channel branding. The installation of the Spectrum servers is part of a facility upgrade corresponding with the rollout of Raj's first 24-hour news station, which began broadcasting in June 2008.
