Snell Morpheus selected for new ABC/WIN playout facility in Australia

Snell’s Morpheus automation and control system will sit at the heart of one of Australia's first playout facilities dedicated to hosting multiclient, terrestrial broadcasters. MediaHub is a joint venture between Australian Broadcasting (ABC) and WIN. The state-of-the-art SD/HD facility in New South Wales will offer automated playout through multiple Morpheus systems, as well as ingest, storage, asset management, monitoring and headend systems with all applicable equipment and professional services provided through prime contractor Grass Valley.

The new 24,300sq-ft playout center is designed to deliver enhanced and cost-effective services, cater to the enhanced demands of digital broadcasting, and increase the programming capability and capacity of Australian broadcasters well into the future. Broadcasters will plan and send their schedules to the facility, where Morpheus systems will generate ingest lists for the Grass Valley ContentShare2 (CS2) workflow and media asset management system, which serves as the interface between the playout center and its multiple clients' individual production centers. Content will be delivered to nearline storage, and the Snell Morpheus systems will move media to the playout server and automate playout for programming across 130 channels. This model will give centrally located operators the ability to manage multiple live content streams and variations in playout schedules for multiple time zones.
