OETA Adds Storage With Omneon

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Omneon Video Networks today announced
that Oklahoma Educational Television Authority (OETA), a PBS affiliate based
in Oklahoma City, has expanded its new Omneon SpectrumT SD/HD media server
system with the recent purchase of the Omneon ConformToolT, which enables
full integration of Avid systems into a highly flexible Omneon broadcast
server infrastructure.

OETA first installed Omneon Spectrum server system at its Oklahoma City
facilities in 2005, and in 2006 the company added HD capability, along with
additional channels and storage. The server system runs under the control of
Sundance Digital Titan automation, and the new implementation of ConformTool
integrates OETA's storage and editing systems more tightly by streamlining
the transfer of files between the Spectrum server and Avid systems.

"We were attracted to the Omneon Spectrum media server because of its
flexible I/O offering, the ability to handle multiple formats, and its
modular infrastructure, all of which are very useful for the world of public
television," said Earle Connors, director of engineering at OETA. "We
broadcast in HDMPEG, DV25, and IMX, so we needed a versatile playout
solution, and the Spectrum media server has been just that. It has formed
the foundation for our digital playout operations, providing tight
integration with our automation and editing systems."
