HBO Asia selects Omneon, Pharos for infrastructure overhaul

HBO Asia has selected Omneon and Pharos to provide an infrastructure upgrade that will enable a fully file-based workflow for HBO’s Singapore facility, the companies said in mid-June.

The combination of Omneon MediaGrid active storage and ProXchange transcoding with Pharos Mediator content management and Playtime automation will allow HBO Asia to achieve greater efficiency as it delivers programming to its 31 million subscribers in 22 Asian countries.

HBO Asia will incorporate a 60TB MediaGrid active storage system from Omneon as a central storage platform along with new Playtime automation and Mediator content management systems from Pharos to deliver 12 SD channels to air. The Singapore-based media company will also use an Omneon ProXchange high-performance transcoding system to support its media repurposing operations. The system will be in operation in the last quarter of 2008.

Additionally, HBO Asia has upgraded its existing Spectrum server with increased system bandwidth and six additional playback channels to be used as squeeze channels.
