IMF launches 24-hour music channel with Omneon Spectrum

The International Music Feed (IMF) is using a new Spectrum media server system from Omneon Video Networks as part of a three-channel broadcast system. The server will support program playout on IMF’s 24-hour channel, launched in January.

The system allows IMF to work with DV format content from the time videos leave archive, throughout editing, to transmission for playout. IMF acquires file-based content from archives at Bitmax in Hollywood, edits content at its Santa Monica facility with Apple’s Final Cut Pro, and then transports files to an Omneon server located at Globecast’s Culver City, CA, uplink site. On-air playout is managed with Omneon’s PlayTool utility.

Omneon's server system supports a variety of third-party applications for control and transmission, media management, archiving and collaborative production. Because the server features a scalable, distributed architecture, IMF will be able to scale system components as its operations evolve.
