Egypt’s Dream TV is using an Omneon Spectrum media server system for playout of two channels.
Installed at the Nilesat earth station adjoining the Media City complex outside Cairo, Egypt, the Spectrum server system allows the privately owned network to broadcast Dream 1 and Dream 2 programming from a shared playout platform.
Dream 1 features videos targeted to younger viewing audiences, while Dream 2 produces cultural programs, contemporary videos, films featuring Arab and international actors and Arabic drama series. The Omneon server system on which broadcast content resides is installed in leased facilities at Nilesat, which also serves as the transmission facility for both channels.
The Omneon Spectrum media server provides a reliable, scalable infrastructure for broadcast playout and storage applications. Omneon’s server system is built on an open architecture that allows it to support a broad variety of third-party applications for control and transmission, media management, archiving and collaborative production.
