Star TV Invests in iTX for Playout
Athens-based Star TV has installed a five-channel playout and automation system as part of its plans to broadcast new a number of channels, including Star Greece, Star USA and Star Australia. The system is based on OmniBus iTX software and offers one-to-one channel redundancy.

All five channels are SD output with master control, logos, live, dynamic schedule and sequence software plug-ins, with fully redundant framework services and SQL on a clustered server. Schedules are provided by a Provys system, with Star TV's own software converting Provys schedules to iTX format.

One of the new channels in the new Star TV system includes iTX GFX, the advanced real-time 2D and 3D graphics option, for MTV Greece. The graphics tool offers template-based animation and scripting functions as well as external control. The G3 technology on which iTX is based will allow Star TV to build customised interfaces to suit individual workflows.
