Leitch Technology announced that Lumiere TV, the Cypriot pay-TV broadcaster, has selected Nexio servers for its new multi-channel playout system that is scheduled to go on-air in May.
The new, expandable 10-channel system gives Lumiere the ability to increase the efficiency of its own operations and also offer third-party clients multi-channel playout, content management, acquisition and scheduling, production and post-production, transmission and connectivity — all under one roof. Lumiere currently broadcasts two premium pay-TV channels offering movies, series and sport programs.
Nexio is a modular, scalable server system for transmission and news environments, which offers integrated application platforms for editing, browsing and media management across a multi-tiered storage hierarchy. Nexio supports multiple compression formats in both standard and high definition, industry-standard control protocols, third-party file formats and ASI interface, providing broadcasters with the flexibility they need to meet any future requirements. As an operation grows, Nexio's modular and scalable design allows users to build systems — up to 24 terabyte in a single domain — in small, low-cost increments.
