Collossus move for Chellomedia

Chellomedia's Netherlands-based broadcast facilities provider, Digital Media Centre (DMC), has expanded its OmniBus Colossus installation with the addition of eight channels in preparation for the transfer of its National Geographic TV playout operations.

As a result of the installation, Chellomedia's new server-based playout platform, installed two years ago, now supports a total of 18 SD channels. The company also broadcasts two HD National Geographic channels and provides playout for The History Channel, Universal and MGM using the Colossus platform.

"This block of new channels is part of our planned program of expansion for the new platform," said Jon Try, vice president of broadcast operations and engineering, Chellomedia. "We are continuously upgrading the operation to offer our customers the best and most innovative services, and OmniBus has been instrumental in this expansion by providing us with the versatile and scalable technology we need."

Chellomedia's Colossus installation is integrated with equipment from Omneon, Miranda and Screen Subtitling.
