Omneon Video Networks has announced that PBS member station KRWG-TV, serving the Las Cruces, NM, area, has installed an Omneon Spectrum media server system for tapeless storage and playout of the station’s programming.
Using Omneon’s play and record tools, KRWG is able to record PBS programs off of satellite and play content out via playlists. KRWG broadcasts an analog channel with a simulcast running on its digital channel. The server system is configured with eight in-and-out ports and features 10TB of storage capacity.
The media server provides the station with a scalable infrastructure for broadcast playout and storage applications. Its open architecture allows it to support a broad variety of third-party applications for control and transmission, media management, archiving and collaborative production.
