Omneon offers real-time codec support for HD servers
At the 2009 NAB Show (Booth #SU7217), Omneon will introduce three new MediaPort modules for its Spectrum and MediaDeck server systems that extend real-time codec support to facilitate flexible, cost-effective production and playout of SD and HD content.
The MediaPort 5500 series, MediaPort 6200/6300 series and MediaPort 5600 series all provide codec capabilities that support streamlined and economical workflows to bring multiformat media to air. Omneon will also unveil a range of new features for its new and existing MediaPort models, including scrub audio, improved jog/shuttle and still modes, and integrated real-time proxy generation that enable Omneon video servers to support fast-paced production environments.
The company now provides full support for Panasonic AVC-Intra (H.264)-based HD workflows with the new MediaPort 5600 series. These modules offer two or four channels of play or record of Class 50 and 100 material with 16 channels of audio per channel. By supporting a nontranscoded AVC-Intra workflow integrated with Panasonic equipment, the MediaPort 5600 series enables seamless baseband video and file-based production and playout.
The MediaPort 5600 series will be demonstrated within the Panasonic booth (C3712) at the 2009 NAB Show.
