Crawford selects OmniBus Systems’ Colossus automation

March 1, 2004

OmniBus Systems, a provider of automation and asset management technology, announced that Atlanta-based Crawford Communications has selected its Colossus multichannel automation system as the basis for consolidation of the company’s network origination operations.

As part of the project, dubbed “Encompass ENCOde, Manage, and Protect your Assets,” Colossus will be deployed to control SGI Origin 350 video servers and a Masstech archive system, and interface with five different traffic systems, providing a solution for playout of 37 redundant channels.

Colossus is a multichannel automation and control system designed to bridge the gap between video, audio, Internet, and data-streaming applications. It provides a means by which broadcasters can multiply their channel output.

The system’s timeline-based display allows a single operator to monitor the status of all channels instantaneously. It also enables an operator to focus in on any single stream, confirm its data, and drive it in the traditional manner should the schedule require it.

Crawford Communications’ new network origination system is scheduled to go to air May 15.
