The Omneon Spectrum media server, running under Pharos automation, supports ingest, program insertion and transmission outputs for price-drop TV, bid TV and speed auction TV.
Omneon Video Networks has announced that sit-up, the U.K. TV retailer, has brought online a new Omneon Spectrum media server system for three shopping channels —price-drop TV, bid TV and speed auction TV — and two free-to-air movie channels, matinee movies and bad movies.
In the past year, sit-up expanded its channel portfolio from two to three live channels and launched its new free-to-air movie channels. Running under the control of Pharos automation, the new Omneon Spectrum system supports three studio-based transmission outputs for price-drop TV, bid TV and speed auction TV; plays out material for insertion into live studio production; provides channels for backup and review of media; and supports ingest and playout for movies.
The Omneon Spectrum media server’s open architecture supports a variety of third-party applications for control and transmission, media management, archiving and collaborative production. The modular system will allow sit-up to add ports easily as the company expands its channel offering. The initial system at sit-up boasts enough bandwidth to accommodate additional record or play functionality, which can be grown in small or large increments as desired.
