The International Music Feed (IMF) will use a new Omneon SPECTRUM media server system as part of a three-channel broadcast system.
The server system would playout programming on IMF's 24-hour channel launched in January. The system allows IMF to work with content in DV format from the time videos leave archive, throughout editing, to transmission for playout.
IMF acquires file-based content from archives at Bitmax in Hollywood, CA, edits it at its Santa Monica, CA, facility with Apple Final Cut Pro, and transports files to an Omneon server located at Globecast's Culver City, CA, uplink site. On-air playout is managed with Omneon's PlayTool utility.
