OmniBus Systems announced that its iTX IT-based playout system has been integrated with Front Porch Digital's DIVArchive content storage management system. The latest version of iTX includes support for DIVArchive's full functionality, including clip archiving to DIVArchive storage, clip restore and partial restore from archive to iTX storage for playout.
iTX support for DIVArchive allows broadcasters to implement file-based workflows with seamless access to DIVArchive storage, along with IT network-attached storage and conventional video server storage. Broadcasters adding new iTX channels can now share DIVArchive content with conventional playout systems.iTX powers large-scale high-end transmission operations that require the ability to integrate into complex environments, exchange data with the broadcast business and traffic systems, and respond quickly to new or changing requirements. Its cost-effectiveness, low maintenance overhead and space-efficiency also make it ideal for emerging broadcast operations.
