Omneon doubles HD ingest density, adds simultaneous proxies to MediaPorts

Omneon showed a new family of MPEG-2 MediaPorts for its Spectrum and MediaDeck video servers at IBC2008.

The MPEG-2 encode/decode MediaPorts are based on the same codec technology in the MediaPort 5200 and 5300 series but now offer double the ingest density — from two to four channels — to enhance price/performance while using less power.

In addition, Omneon has added the ability of the MediaPort 5320 and 5220 series to generate 1Mb/s MPEG-1 proxies in real time, enabling fast access to proxy material for low-res previewing, browsing and editing.

The Omneon MediaPort 5320 series offers up to four channels of HD/SD record and play, in any combination, in a compact 1RU package. Using MPEG-2 codec technology, the units deliver flexibility for deployment in HD and SD ingest applications, playout servers or hybrid environments.
