Discovery Television Center - Miami selects Omneon Spectrum

Discovery Television Center - Miami has purchased a 54-channel mirrored Omneon Spectrum media server system for storage and playout of Discovery Latin America/Iberia programme feeds for distribution to 34 countries in the Caribbean, Central America, South America, and Iberian territories.
Housed in the Discovery Television Center - Miami, the new system will streamline the delivery of 17 unique feeds, customised in five languages, for all of Discovery Latin America/Iberia's brands: Discovery Channel, Discovery Kids, Discovery Health, Discovery Travel & Adventure, People & Arts, and Animal Planet.
"We needed a media server system that would provide rock-solid reliability with the flexibility to meet our unique workflow requirements," said Marcos Obadia, executive vice president of Discovery Media Services at Discovery Communications. "With the ability to accommodate a variety of formats, Omneon Spectrum servers will help increase the efficiency of our playout operations and provide a foundation for future growth. We were impressed by Omneon's ability to address our current specific needs as well as deliver a superior long-term solution capable of supporting our future needs."
Comprised of 10 MediaStore storage arrays, Discovery's new Omneon Spectrum implementation provides a total of 20 TB of shared storage across two mirrored systems.
An exceptionally cost-effective and flexible media server designed for the professional television industry, the Omneon Spectrum provides a reliable and scalable infrastructure for broadcast playout and storage applications. Omneon's server system is built on an open architecture that allows it to support a broad variety of third-party applications for control and transmission, media management, archiving, and collaborative production. As a result, stored media can be shared among many users and applications.
The scalable, distributed architecture of the modular Omneon Spectrum server system also offers users maximum flexibility in scaling system components and capacity in small or large increments as desired. The system is available in a broad range of configurations to meet the specific needs of each installation.
