OmniBus Systems will deliver the automation portion of an off-site backup broadcast facility solution to Starz Encore. OmniBus Systems has recently provided Starz Encore Group with an automation system for its main playout center in Englewood, Colo., a suburb of Denver.
The new facility will be built in Castle Rock, Colo., about 40 miles south of Starz Encore’s corporate headquarters in Englewood, Colo. The two broadcast sites will be tied together by fiber and OmniBus' Workflow Manager will automatically synchronize media between the locales.
The OmniBus Colossus core will be controlled at the company’s Englewood headquarters. The backup facility is designed to go on-air by switching satellite uplink sites.
