The duopoly of KVLY-TV 11 (NBC affiliate) and KXJB-TV 4 (CBS affiliate) serving the Fargo and Valley City areas of North Dakota has deployed an Omneon Spectrum media server system for playout from a joint master control room. The server system, installed and launched with the merging of KXJB operations into the KVLY facility, provides centralized playout of both channels and handles all content ingest.
The 10-channel server system operates in conjunction with Crispin automation for playout of both channels, as well as ingest of approximately 35 programs and promo feeds each day.
Omneon's server system is built on an open architecture that allows it to support a broad variety of third-party applications for control and transmission, media management, archiving and collaborative production. The system also allows the stations to be able to expand at a later date in small or large increments.
