The International Music Feed (IMF) is using a new Omneon Spectrum media server system as part of a three-channel broadcast system. The system will be used for programming playout on IMF's 24-hour channel, which launched in January.
The system allows IMF to keep 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, edits that content at its Santa Monica facility with Apple’s Final Cut Pro, and then transports the files to an Omneon server located at Globecast’s Culver City uplink site. On-air playout is managed with Omneon's PlayTool utility.
