New Studio Technology-Station

Winner: Georgia Public Broadcasting
by Silicon Graphics

Georgia Public Broadcasting (GPB) needed to transition their infrastructure to an open digital format. Therefore the Silicon Graphics architecture needed to meet not only broadcast playout requirements, but also the common data management, shared storage and archiving infrastructure that the station envisioned for both its broadcast and non-broadcast data. GPB also wanted to build a highly reliable centralized storage environment that would support both their Internet service and broadcast operation.
