Omneon Spectrum Media Server System supports scalable automated broadcast operations for TV 2 Norway

Omneon Video Networks has announced that TV 2, Norway's most popular commercial broadcaster, is using Omneon Spectrum media server systems for ingest, storage, and playout of programming for its new multichannel broadcast platform.
Supplied and installed by Bergen and Oslo-based broadcast systems dealer Video 4, the new Omneon server systems enable flexible and highly automated play-to-air.
"Omneon Spectrum server systems integrate very well with leading automation systems, enabling precise and direct control over server functions for maximum flexibility in an advanced IT-based transmission workflow," said Video 4 Managing Director Eivind Osnes. "With a scalable infrastructure that allows for easy channel expansion of the server, the Spectrum system provides a solid foundation for future growth of TV 2's broadcast operations."
TV 2 installed the Omneon Spectrum systems as part of a larger transmission system designed to handle playout of entertainment and sports programming for TV 2 Zebra. The system has now been expanded to include the main channel TV 2 and five new football channels. The Spectrum server system at TV 2's Bergen facility is integrated with Pro-Bel's Morpheus automation system, also delivered by Video 4. The tight integration of Morpheus MediaBall technology with Omneon's flexible architecture gives TV 2 the ability to package even the most complex sequences of events simply and easily.
An exceptionally cost-effective and flexible media server designed for the professional television industry, the Omneon Spectrum media server features a reliable and scalable infrastructure that offers TV 2 maximum flexibility in scaling system components and capacity in small or large increments as the broadcaster's growth demands. An open architecture allows the Spectrum server system to support a broad variety of third-party applications for control and transmission, media management, archiving, and collaborative production.
