Tamil-Language Captain TV Launches On Omneon Media Server And Storage Platform

Harmonic has announced that Captain TV, a 24-hour news and entertainment TV channel based in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India, has installed an Omneon media storage and processing platform to support its file-based broadcast operations.
The new channel, which launched in 2010, broadcasts movies, daily soaps, awareness programmes, news and other entertainment programming, including Tamil movies, as well as English movies dubbed in Tamil.
Captain TV has installed two Omneon MediaDeck server systems along with Omneon ProDrive software, as well as an Omneon MediaGrid active storage system, all supplied by Shaf Broadcast. The broadcaster uses the Omneon MediaGrid system to provide high-performance centralised storage of its media assets.
The system is connected to all of Captain TV's Apple edit and graphics systems. Because content is ingested directly to the Omneon MediaGrid, networked users can access and edit stored content quickly and easily. Omneon ProDrive enables MediaDeck server control anywhere on the facility's network and provides a cost-effective toolset that allows users to record or ingest content automatically, create playout schedules, or review and prepare clips directly - all from the desktop.
L.K. Sudhish, Managing Director of Captain TV, said: "Captain TV brings viewers a new dimension in TV. We are committed to providing meaningful, unbiased content through a unique programme offering, and we work with the best minds to present every minute of valuable information to the public. Our state-of-the-art facilities were engineered to ensure consistent high-quality broadcasts, and the robust, reliable storage and playout systems from Omneon are a perfect fit for this environment."
Geoff Stedman, Vice President for Corporate Marketing at Harmonic, said: "Captain TV's implementation of Omneon media servers and storage systems signifies a serious commitment to providing viewers with a quality broadcast product. Together, Captain TV's Omneon systems provide an array of powerful and tightly integrated tools for reliably taking programming to air."
