New Omneon MediaPort 6101 supports DVCPRO HD

Part of the MediaPort line, the new modular I/O adds support for the format to the Omneon Spectrum server.

At IBC2007, Omneon launched an addition to its new MediaPort 6000 series of modular I/O components.

The new line of MediaPort components extends the company’s support of HD production formats, building on the introduction earlier this year of the MediaPort 5300 series for HD MPEG-2.

The first available Spectrum component in the new series is the MediaPort 6101, which provides real-time recording and playback of DVCPRO HD material. With the MediaPort 6101, broadcasters can integrate DVCPRO HD into existing workflows.

With the new MediaPort 6101, incoming raw video content can be encoded in real time, creating editable DVCPRO HD files within an Omneon Spectrum system. Files can also be transferred to an Omneon Spectrum system from DVCPRO HD compatible editors, such as Final Cut Pro. DVCPRO HD files can then be decoded by the MediaPort 6101 for on-air playback.
