SGI announces initiative to bring new flexibility to broadcasters

The SGI Open Broadcast Initiative promotes interoperability, regardless of vendor origination, with scalable SGI system architectures

Silicon Graphics has launched its SGI Open Broadcast Initiative to deliver a more open system choice approach to ease broadcasters' transition to a digital IT infrastructure.

Leveraging SGI’s expertise with broadcast partners and designing all-digital workflow environments, the SGI Open Broadcast Initiative brings together broadcast products regardless of vendor origination with the implementation of scalable SGI broadcast system architectures.

SGI has initially formed non-exclusive alliances with Omneon and Pinnacle Systems for integration of the companies' Spectrum media servers and nonlinear editing systems in a total SGI broadcast solution.
