Transmissions provider Advanced Broadcast Services has installed a Sony PetaSite data library for its new play-to-air facility.
Ordered via Pharos Communications, the PetaSite includes two SAIT-1 data-tape drives, an Ethernet hub, Fibre channel connectivity and a terminal server.
The company’s existing Pharos Playtime media management system is being expanded from six channels to 12. Playtime will control ingest from a Sony Flexicart to a Pinnacle video server, play-to-air from the server and deliver programs and interstitials to and from the PetaSite archive.
