Omneon Products On Display at the 2010 NAB Show

Omneon MediaGrid™ Active Storage System

At the Omneon NAB booth, N5106, an Omneon MediaGrid™ active storage system will be integrated with a high-performance production server to enable fast access to incoming media used in live and near-live broadcast production. Omneon will demonstrate how a single, shared storage resource can be the basis for a best-of-breed production environment, simultaneously supporting production tools from Adobe®, Apple®, Avid®, and EVS. The Omneon MediaGrid also will provide the processing power for Omneon ProXchange™ to repackage edited content for rapid delivery to other media distribution outlets.


Omneon Spectrum™ Media Server System

The Omneon Spectrum™ media server system is the industry's most scalable, reliable, and cost-effective video server platform for multichannel playout, news, sports highlights, and studio production workflows. Extending its leadership position, Omneon will highlight new Spectrum media server components that dramatically expand the system's capability to support today's demanding bandwidth-intensive broadcast environments.

Now shipping, the next-generation Omneon MediaDirector 2200 series for the Spectrum video server system meets the growing demand for additional SD and HD channels, provides more network file access bandwidth, and supports the greater number of edit seats used in fast-paced production environments. The MediaDirector 2200 series significantly extends the Spectrum server by delivering nearly an order-of-magnitude increase in total system bandwidth, enabling many more simultaneous real-time channels and establishing industry-leading IP file access performance.


Omneon MediaDeck™ GX Channel Playout Solution

The Omneon MediaDeck™ system is the foundation for the new MediaDeck GX, an integrated channel-playout solution that combines proven video server playout, world-class graphics, and advanced audio processing, all of which can operate under the control of the user's preferred automation system.

Omneon Media Applications Server (MAS)

Designed specifically to help simplify file-based media workflows, the Omneon Media Application Server enables enterprise-wide visibility and coordinated management of content. Easing the development and deployment of dedicated enterprise media management applications from developer partners and customers, the Media Application Server ensures that stored content across an environment can be easily managed, accessed, and processed from a centralized platform.

Built on standard IT hardware, the Omneon Media Application Server provides an intelligent middleware layer between media content stored across multiple storage systems or video servers and the applications that are used to access that content or perform media processing tasks on content as it moves through its life cycle. Application servers provide proven improved efficiency through centralized administration and configuration, centralized security for controlled access to content, a standardized metadata model, and a common messaging bus. The Omneon Media Application Server is designed specifically to bring these advantages to media organizations, helping to both simplify and optimize complex file-based workflows.
