Portuguese broadcaster chooses OmniBus for asset management makeover

Rádio e Televisão de Portugal has installed an OmniBus content management system to provide RTP's Porto and Lisbon news operations with streamlined access to its central content archive. The system comprises facilities for global ingest, production, post production, transmission, news and archive operations as part of a major new studio and facilities installation for the Portuguese national broadcaster.

The system includes the OmniBus OPUS digital asset management system with the capability to ingest content locally from tape and interface with Quantel and Omneon servers, as well as OmniBus Colossus for transmission. The system integrates a Sony Flexicart for ingest and a Front Porch Digital DIVArchive with Sony PetaSite for long-term storage.
