NRK Manages Olympic Assets With OmniBus
Norwegian national broadcaster Norsk Rikskringkasting (NRK) devised a comprehensive asset management and logging operation for its Olympics coverage built around an OmniBus OPUS media asset management system. Using the system the 12 NRK regional production centers can locate clips with detailed search criteria in more than 140 data categories, and gain instant access to material as it is logged in Oslo.

Up to 15 simultaneous Olympic feeds are recorded using OmniBus Ingest Manager at NRK headquarters in Oslo, with a team of eight loggers working in shifts to add metadata. Using OPUS search tools, staff at the NRK regional production centers can immediately access the material and view copies of required clips.

Logged events can be used for shot selection to build highlights packages quickly or to trigger media transfers to any of the NRK sites across Norway. A separate NRK HD Olympic production team also uses the metadata system for quick identification of required material from each feed.

A custom metadata schema allows NRK operators to define material by each event classification and by key points of interest within the event, such as break points in a tennis match. Each event has its own further level of specific, custom data.
