KNPB adds Omneon Spectrum media server

October 20, 2003

The Omneon SPECTRUM is built around a flexible shared storage infrastructure specifically designed for the acquisition, management, and playback of digital media.

Omneon Video Networks has announced that KNPB Channel 5, the PBS member station in Reno, Nev., has selected its Spectrum media server as its playout platform for broadcasting a new digital channel.

The Omneon Spectrum media server system, which is being controlled by a Crispin automation system, will handle the playout to air of one of KNPB’s planned four digital channels. Three of the digital channels will simply pass through national feeds and simulcast the local analog programming, while the fourth, earmarked for its own digital Nevada PBS channel, will combine locally produced material with national content and playout from the Spectrum.
