TPT Goes Tapeless With Omneon Spectrum

Twin Cities Public Television (TPT) has deployed Omneon's Spectrum media server system, along with Florical broadcast automation, to ingest content recorded during local legislative sessions and from PBS promotional feeds, and to access those files with Final Cut Pro editing systems. Prior to implementing the server, TPT relied on a tape-based system.

Spectrum interfaces with new and existing broadcast systems over TPT's local area network, and is compatible with standard NLE file formats. Producers will be able to view ingested and finished product stored on the server from any PC in the building.
