Omneon serves PBS member stations

The public broadcaster recently installed its 75th Spectrum server.

Just prior to this year’s PBS Technology Conference, April 11-14, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Omneon announced that in the first quarter of 2007, the company reached a benchmark 75th PBS member station server installation.

At the PBS Technology Conference, Omneon offered a sneak peek of the new Omneon MediaDeck server, which was officially introduced at NAB2007. The company also demonstrated the Omneon ProBrowse system.

In addition to Omneon participating as a platinum sponsor and exhibitor, Paul Turner, Omneon’s VP for product marketing, spoke about using MXF in a file-based workflow at a super-session entitled “Advanced Workflows: Alphabet Soup or Hearty Stew?” Along with Turner, Frank Graybill, chief engineer of PBS member station WNET, New York, and Chris Lennon, program manager at Harris, participated in the panel.
