Chellomedia, a leading European provider of broadcast content and digital services, has launched a new 24-hour broadcast service based on the OmniBus iTX playout and automation system. Configured for three channels and an additional backup channel, Chellomedia's iTX system went on-air Sept. 1 after an installation and commissioning period of only two days.
Chellomedia is using the iTX system to broadcast around the clock across Europe, with the initial channel launch to be followed by two additional channels in Q4 2007 and a further upgrade to HD broadcasting on some channels in 2008.
For Chellomedia's installation, iTX is integrated with the company's IBMS scheduling system, and content is transferred via ftp direct to the iTX storage for automated transmission with interstitials and software branding provided by iTX's Logo module.
