Pebble Beach Systems has installed its multichannel Neptune system at CNBC Europe in London.
This system is playing out the Sci-Fi channel on Sky Digital which went on air last month. CNBC plans to control other channels with the same system.
At CNBC, the Neptune system is controlling a four-port Omneon server; a six-port SeaChange server; a Sony FlexiCart with two VTRs; a Pixel Power Clarity character generator; a Quartz Q32 SDI router; a Grass Valley Venus routing switcher; external VTRs; and a Softel subtitler.
The system comprises fully flexible and configurable clients where multi-tasking of ingest and transmission functions is possible. The system includes four playlists, a full automatic schedule record list utility and a playlist translator, which enables Neptune to interface to the MSA Focus traffic system.
The system also features the Pebble Beach Periscope tool, a timeline viewer, which allows any operator to monitor all playing channels on one screen at a glance.
