Barrington Broadcasting streamlines master control with Omneon Spectrum

Barrington Broadcasting Group is upgrading the digital master control operations at several of its stations and installing Omneon Spectrum media servers. The independent station group has entered into a multiyear agreement with Omneon to supply video servers as part of Barrington’s migration to HD broadcasting.

Working with systems integrator Roscor, Barrington has so far installed Spectrum servers for ingest and playout at NBC affiliate WNWO-TV in Toledo, OH, and at NBC affiliate and satellite stations WPBN/WTOM TV 7&4 in Traverse City, MI.

Mike Miller, chief engineer at TV 7&4, said thanks to seamless integration with third-party solutions, the Spectrum server installation was probably the easiest part of the master control rebuild.

Barrington has deployed a 16-channel Spectrum system at WPBN/WTOM to support HD ingest and playout. The six-channel SD Spectrum server at WNWO-TV has enabled the Toledo station to move to a file-based workflow with an easy HD upgrade path. At each station, the Omneon media server operates in conjunction with Sundance Digital automation and Pathfire digital media distribution and management systems.
