OmniBus Systems to provide management system for NOB

OmniBus Systems have announced that they are to provide Dutch broadcast facilitator NOB, with a comprehensive management system, as part of an extensive, multi-million-Euro digital upgrade at its Hilversum facility.
NOB, which provides transmission services for the network of public broadcasters in the Netherlands, is replacing its traditional digital videotape operation with a new server-based, tape-less environment.
The project has been designed to streamline the way the broadcasters work with NOB. Key elements include file-based programme essence and metadata transfers from multiple parties to one central repository used for play-out, Internet, and archiving, as well as close integration with the Dutch national media archive.
In the new system, OmniBus' G3 architecture will control the movement of high-resolution material from its arrival in the NOB facility by file transfer or tape. OmniBus Workflow will then direct it through the QC process and enable a low-resolution copy to be made.
OmniBus will subsequently move the material to the central storage and, should it not be required immediately, onto a near-line archive. The NOB system management will generate playlists, and OmniBus will retrieve content from the central server or tape storage before moving it to the transmission suites that feature existing OmniBus automation.
OmniBus Workflow will ensure that the business management systems are kept informed of the status of material as it moves through the entire process.
OmniBus is integrating with Blue Order's Media Archive, enabling the interchange of data between the automation and the media asset management. This allows operators to control workflows including ingest, transcoding, archive management, search, browse, partial file restore, and content delivery.
There is also integration between OmniBus and the NOB's traffic system from MediaGeniX. The project's system integrator is Sony Netherlands, and NOB is scheduled to migrate to the new system in January 2005.
