Omneon has signed a reseller agreement with Tekserve and Integrated Media Technologies (IMT) to offer purpose-built storage solutions based on Omneon's MediaGrid active storage system to enable efficient and highly scalable editing and repurposing workflows.

The MediaGrid edit solution allows post houses and TV and corporate production departments to work with both Avid and Final Cut Pro editors simultaneously, using a single storage system to support edit-in-place work with either application. MediaGrid employs parallel grid processing and integrates that processing power into the storage architecture.

"We're very pleased to be aligned with Omneon, a market leader in the development of media server technology," said Matthew Cohen, co-owner of Tekserve in New York. "Omneon has brought numerous innovations to the broadcast industry, and the company's MediaGrid-based storage solutions for the post market offer exciting new shared edit workflow possibilities for the Mac-centric environments favored by our customers."

MediaGrid allows facilities to repurpose their existing libraries and new material for distribution to broadcast outlets, the Web, and handheld media players. Smart drop folders enable automatic rule-based transcoding to one or more different formats within a single job, and Web-based reporting notifies users when the job has been completed.
