New server from Omneon18 March 2011
Harmonic has introduced a new, multi-channel media server, the Omneon Spectrum MediaCenter. Aimed at local and regional broadcast stations, it supports from four to 12 channels in a single server configuration.“Harmonic is committed not only to continued innovation but to bringing down the cost of reliable, high performance systems,” said Geoff Stedman of Harmonic. “MediaCenter does just that for customers that need limited channel scalability but the reliability of our flagship Spectrum video server.”There is up to 16 TB of integrated low-cost SATA storage, equivalent to more than 600 hours of 50 Mb/s video. I/O supports 600 Mb/s, enough for 12 channels of multi-format record and play at the same target bitrate. It is compatible with all Spectrum software applications, and supports up to six external MediaPort I/O modules for realtime ingest and playout.
