Omneon Video Networks has installed an Omneon Spectrum media server in the People’s Republic of China. The system at Ningbo TV includes 300 hours of storage and two channels, one to play out Ningbo TV’s new children’s channel, which went live in June, and the second for future expansion.
Ningbo TV currently broadcasts 100 hours of programming per day on five channels: News, Economy and Life, City Culture, Movies, and Children’s. Under the control of Founder’s automation software, material is ingested from VTRs to the Omneon server and then played out to air, also under automation control.
Broadcasting since 1984, the broadcast area of Ningbo TV includes the city of Ningbo and 11 surrounding counties with a total population of 10 million people.
Omneon will be demonstrating the Omneon Spectrum at BIRTV, the broadcast and film equipment exhibition held in Beijing from Aug. 25-28.
