New Products at BES EXPO 2010

Omneon MediaGrid™ Active Storage System

The award-winning Omneon MediaGrid™ active storage system represents the first content storage system to play an active part in the broadcast workflow. More than just high-performance shared storage for all users within a facility, the Omneon MediaGrid system scales capacity, bandwidth, and media processing power in one system. Transcoding content where it resides — in the Omneon MediaGrid system — reduces transcode times and saves on infrastructure equipment and maintenance costs. The Omneon MediaGrid system helps users manage growth as well. When facilities need more capacity, users can simply add storage modules and, within seconds, gain greater capacity, greater access to bandwidth, and more grid-powered processing performance. At BES EXPO 2010, Omneon will showcase the Omneon MediaGrid active storage system operating in conjunction with Apple® Final Cut Pro® in a streamlined edit-in-place workflow. This model provides the integrated ingest, storage, and playout infrastructure needed to establish a productive, collaborative broadcast environment.

Omneon Spectrum™ Media Server System

The Omneon Spectrum™ media server system is the industry's most scalable, reliable, and cost effective video server and storage infrastructure for television production, playout, and archive applications — a solution that's transforming the economics of broadcasting for television operations worldwide. Media server solutions from Omneon enable broadcasters to migrate from analog to digital, from tape to disk, from standard-definition to high-definition, and from single- to multi-channel operations. By combining its expertise in broadcast with the best practices of information technology, Omneon is able to deliver cost-effective and flexible networked media servers that meet the demanding requirements of broadcast environments. Omneon Spectrum media servers incorporate an open and advanced architecture, providing a facility with a scalable common server and storage infrastructure.

Simulating real-world failure scenarios, the “Resiliency Centre” will give visitors to the Omneon BES EXPO 2010 booth the opportunity to get “up close and personal” with the Spectrum system.
