Televisa Buys Omneon Storage

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Omneon Video Networks and AM Tecnologa (AMTEC) today announced that Grupo Televisa, the world's largest Spanish language media corporation, has purchased an Omneon MediaGrid™ active storage system and five Omneon Spectrum™ media servers for ingest, storage, and playout in their Chapultepec and Santa Fe facilities, both located in Mexico City.

"Our overall corporate vision is to implement a tapeless workflow and media asset management system across all of our facilities," said Jorge Cosio Coronado, technical manager for Televisa Canales, the broadcast technology center located in the Chapultepec facility. "With format independence as well as its scalability and reliability, the MediaGrid and Spectrum systems give us a solid infrastructure on which to execute this strategy."

From its Chapultepec facility, Televisa produces news and other programming, and broadcasts three major national channels and one local channel. At the Santa Fe facility, the company produces reality shows and other programming, and ingests commercials for playout.
