WISC-TV uses Omneon for server-based, multichannel playout

Wisconsin CBS affiliate WISC-TV is installing an Omneon SPECTRUM media server system into a new consolidated network operations center that handles centralized playout of WISC-TV Channel 3, digital channel WISC-DT, and UPN local network affiliate UPN14.

The server system will operate as the central program and commercial server for consolidated playout from the Madison-based station. The new operations center, designed and installed in-house, represents not only a shift to server-based operations for WISC-TV, but also a move to multichannel playout.

WISC-TV will cut over to server-based operations in its new tech core during the first quarter of this year. The media server system will run in conjunction with Sundance Digital’s Titan automation system, and also with an Intellisat package that will allow for recording of syndicated programs from the satellite to the server. A Telestream system will facilitate ingest of program, spot content, and metadata from a variety of sources. Systems integrator Roscor assisted WISC staff in the design of these three systems.
