Star Channel selects OmniBus’ Colossus

At the Star Channel’s facility in Athens, Greece, an engineer is using an OmniBus Colossus system.
Athens-based commercial broadcaster Star Channel has gone to air with Greece's first fully automated, end-to-end transmission environment, based on OmniBus Systems' Colossus playout solution.

Colossus is OmniBus' multichannel, multi-delivery automation and control system. It gives the Star Channel built-in scalability for future expansion and high levels of integration. Colossus integrates with the Provys business management system to enable operators to make changes directly in the traffic system that Colossus detects and automatically merges into the live schedule.

Colossus controls the Leitch Opus mixer, allowing operators to mix seamlessly between live, tape and server sources. With the aid of locally produced middleware, Colossus also controls the Inscriber character generator. Using the Colossus Adaptor application and more middleware, Star can dynamically track the amount of commercial content within its schedules.
