Russia Today launches 24-hour news with Omneon Spectrum servers

Russia Today, Russia’s 24-hour English-language news channel, is relying on two Omneon Spectrum media server systems for ingest and playout of Russian news programming distributed worldwide.

The first of Russia Today’s Spectrum server systems operates under the control of DaletPlus News Suite and is used for data ingest and playout within an end-to-end newsroom production and playout workflow. Tight integration of the Spectrum server technology and Vizrt graphics systems enables on-air control and branding capability.

A second Spectrum server system working under Harris automation is used to support creation and playout of broadcast content consisting of live studio feeds, recorded video content and documentary repeats stored on the server.

Russia Today launched on Dec. 10, 2005, following a rapid design and installation process completed by Okno-TV, a Moscow-based systems integrator.
