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 has installed two new SPECTRUM media servers with the help of systems integrator A.F. Associates. The new servers will support both production and playout tasks. WCPO-TV and A.F. engineers selected the media server system for integration with Crispin automation -- already part of Scripps' broadcasting model -- in the new master control environment. A second Omneon server is integrated with Panasonic's newsBYTE DVCPRO editing systems and operates under Avid's iNEWS newsroom control. The seamless linking of the Omneon, Panasonic and Avid technologies provides commonality between the facility's master control and production workflows while reducing staff training time.
A flexible media server designed for the professional television industry, the Omneon Spectrum provides a reliable and scalable infrastructure for WCPO-TV's playout and storage applications. The server system's open architecture allows it to support a broad variety of third-party applications for control and transmission, media management, archiving and collaborative production.
