WCPO-TV integrates news production into new digital workflow model

With the help of system integrator A.F. Associates, WCPO-TV is using two Omneon Spectrum media servers and a Panasonic’s newsBYTE system.

WCPO-TV in Cincinnati, Ohio, has installed two Omneon SPECTRUM media server systems to create a unique digital workflow for production and playout.

The E.W. Scripps Company station has integrated the Omneon servers with Crispin automation in its new master control environment.

For news production under Avid's iNEWS newsroom automation, an Omneon server was integrated with Panasonic's newsBYTE DVCPRO editing systems. The seamless linking of the Omneon, Panasonic and Avid technologies provides commonality between the facility's master control and production workflows.

The server's open architecture allows it to support a broad variety of third-party applications for control and transmission, media management, archiving and collaborative production. As a result, stored media can be shared among many users and applications.
