France's Cognacq-Jay Image Selects Omneon MediaDeck Servers
Omneon has announced that France's Cognacq-Jay Image (C-JI) is installing five Omneon MediaDeck integrated video servers. C-JI will use the MediaDeck servers to provide mirrored playout of four television channels now and will be adding additional channels in the near future. This is the first deployment of the Omneon MediaDeck in France.

"We are growing our client base and adding new channels, and we needed a cost-effective media server solution that could be deployed quickly and easily," said Alain Lorentz, technical director of C-JI. "Also, we needed a flexible system that could handle content in multiple media formats, and the open architecture of the Omneon MediaDeck allows us to accommodate our customer needs in terms of format and specific requirements such as multiple languages or teletext."

C-JI, a division of TDF Group, is a leader in design, development, and operation of broadcast control facilities. Located in Paris, the facility offers studio and post-production, consulting, executive engineering, technology intelligence, and project management services. C-JI broadcasts more than half of the theme channels assembled by content providers in France.

The five Omneon MediaDeck systems will enable additional channels – Planète Justice, Vivolta, Fox, Voyages, and Pink TV -- and over time will take over the evolution of existing structures such as LCP or Motors TV.
