Pharos interfaces audio servers to OmniBus G3 platform

Pharos Communications has become the first third-party vendor to interface products to its OmniBus G3 platform.

Pharos audio servers are now G3 compatible, meaning users of any OmniBus G3 system can integrate the audio servers into their facilities. The first installation of the Pharos G3-enabled audio servers is at the new BBC Broadcast Centre in London.

The G3 architecture is based on open-IT protocols, making it flexible and scalable and allowing broadcasters to use a single consistent interface to integrate, control, and configure OmniBus products and third-party equipment for smooth content-flow management throughout entire operations.

With the G3 interface capability, Pharos audio servers communicate directly with OmniBus systems as a tightly integrated unit. For example, any voice-overs recorded to the Pharos audio servers are instantly available to OmniBus automation, making scheduling and play-to-air simpler processes.

Pharos audio servers manage the recording and playback of audio files for radio and television transmission. Announcements and programs can be recorded and filed using the in-built SQL database, and with a powerful search engine, audio files can be found easily and used in playlists or played directly to air.
