Omneon MediaGrid combines grid storage, computing
The Omneon MediaGrid is a content storage system that plays an active part in the broadcast workflow by constantly adapting to changing resiliency and bandwidth requirements.
MediaGrid actively performs media processing functions on stored content and integrates with workflow and content management applications through open file protocols and APIs.
The product combines grid storage with grid computing through the use of multiple intelligent, interconnected-yet-independent content servers to create a system that scales in manageable increments of capacity, bandwidth and media processing power.
Combined with Omneon Spectrum media servers, MediaGrid lets TV broadcasters and content providers migrate from videotape to an all-digital, disk-based workflow and connect many disparate systems into a single shared-storage environment.
