Dream TV realizes scalable playout with Omneon Spectrum

Omneon has announced that Egypt’s Dream TV is using an Omneon Spectrum media server system for playout of two channels. Installed at the Nilesat earth station adjoining the Media City complex outside Cairo, the Spectrum server system allows the privately owned network to broadcast Dream 1 and Dream 2 programming from a shared playout platform.

Dream 1 features videos targeted to younger viewing audiences — sports and variety programs — while Dream 2 produces cultural programs, contemporary videos, films featuring Arab and international actors, and Arabic drama series. The Omneon server system on which broadcast content resides is installed in leased facilities at Nilesat, which also serves as the transmission facility for both channels.
