At Ascent Media Network Services Asia, eight Omneon SPECTRUM media servers enable a digital workflow for mulitchannel and multi-language programming.
All inbound tapes are ingested into the ingest server in MPEG-2 I-frame format, subsequently passing through quality control monitoring and then stored in deep archive for future production needs.
The same copy is also transcoded to an MPEG-2 long GOP digital file and archived for transmission. Media is retrieved from deep archive and stored in the on-air server for playout.
OmniBus automation controls the Omneon servers through an IP network connection. This configuration enables remote monitoring and diagnosis. In the event that a disaster should occur, AMNSA can commence remote control of playout from a separate location.
