Oman TV adopts XOR MediaServer 1200

The Sultanate of Oman Television increased its HD transmission capacity through XOR Media’s video server MediaServer 1200. Sony Professional Solutions MEA facilitated the systems integration for this project in Oman TV.  The MediaServer 1200 is a standalone video server that offers multi-resolution and multi-format operations with a high channel density of up to 12SD or 11HD in 3RU. It has a built-in storage of up to 16TB in a 3RU chassis. One of the first customers to choose the XOR MediaServer with the DNxHD120 software codec, Oman TV has increased the capacity of its XOR Media playout servers to a total of 32 channels since they switched to state-of-the-art HD broadcasting. The system is integrated with Tedial Hierarchical Storage Management and Media Asset Management, as well Pebble Beach automation. The XOR infrastructure provides a server solution to handle the DNxHD codec and to support a file-based production workflow in Oman TV. Specific requirements of Oman TV like multi-site media movement from Muscat and Salalah and additional layers of redundancy are also addressed. “Robustness, flexibility, open technology,” began Marcello Dellepiane, vice president for EMEA sales, XOR Media. “XOR Media installations are defined not only by their power but also by how they integrate in an ecosystem of best-in-class media application providers. Our Oman TV setup is only one example. We will have many more.”
