KDLT-TV selects Omneon for playout platform

The new server will handle automated playback of the station’s main channel and the Weather Plus channel.

KDLT-TV, the NBC affiliate in Sioux Falls, S.D., has installed an Omneon Spectrum media server to handle the automated playout of commercial content and interstitials on its main channel and its Weather Plus digital secondary channel. Both channels are being controlled by a Sundance Digital automation system.

The Omneon system at KDLT has replaced a proprietary legacy server system that was not easily expandable and did not interface adequately with the third-party systems in use at the station. It handles playback of KDLT’s main channel and the Weather Plus channel.

Supporting most standard formats and protocols, the Omneon Spectrum server features built-in resiliency for reliable operation. Because nearly every function of the system is independently scalable, broadcasters can add new channels and functions easily as their needs change.
