E.tv Chooses Omneon Spectrum Servers

Technology & Convergence

Free-to-air terrestrial television channel, e.tv, has purchased two Omneon Spectrum(TM) media server systems, one to add capacity to the existing Spectrum server in e.tv's 24-hour news production operation, e.News, and one to provide on-air ingest and playout.

"As a longtime Omneon customer, we elected to use Spectrum servers for our expanding operations because of their signature reliability and resilience in mission-critical environments," said Dave Stewart, e.tv chief engineer. "Additionally, Omneon offers outstanding installation and technical support."

At e.tv, the Spectrum playout server is under the direction of Harris automation while the Spectrum news production server interfaces with Apple(R) Final Cut Pro(R) for editing, and a Dalet newsroom computer system (NRCS).
