Florida’s WTVX-TV chooses Omneon Spectrum HD server

Four Points Media Group has deployed Omneon’s Spectrum HD media server in a redundant configuration to provide ingest and simultaneous playout of SD and HD content for WTVX CW-34, Four Points’ station in West Palm Beach, FL.

The Spectrum system is sited at an unmanned transmitter facility in the Everglades, which is managed by remote control from master control facilities in Salt Lake City, UT. The Spectrum is a complete HD ingest and playout server in an integrated platform and supports four redundant channels of HD MPEG playout.

WTVX was CBS-owned and operated until this year, when it was acquired by Four Points Media. Also part of the acquisition were KUTV CBS-2 in Salt Lake City; WLWC CW-28 in Providence, RI; and KEYE CBS-42 in Austin, TX. The media group is now in the process of implementing a unified Spectrum server platform across all of its stations.
