Greek public TV station preserves archives with Omneon

Greece’s public broadcaster ERT (Hellenic Radio & Television) is installing a Spectrum media server system from Omneon alongside a new Dalet media asset management (MAM) system for ingest, playout and online storage.

The new Omneon server system, supplied by Pierides TechnoSystems, will allow ERT to digitize and manage all of its historically significant video content, currently stored in a variety of formats including legacy analog formats.

ERT owns a substantial film archive from the first decade of public television — which includes more than 40,000 hours of material on 35mm film and 210,000 hours on 16mm film — along with Greek and international news bulletins, and documentaries from that era.

The new archive system will incorporate material preserved on 1in and 2in open-reel tape, U-matic videocassettes, 16mm and 35mm film, and also newer formats such as Betacam SP and DVCPRO.

As soon as material is recorded onto the Omneon Spectrum media server, ERT staff can use the DaletPlus interface to view proxies of the content and log and track clips without modifying the original media.
