STN increases automated playout capacity

Slovenian playout centre STN has ordered three new Oasys automated playout channels, adding to the six HD channels installed in 2011. Systems integrator RoBaGo will install the systems in the coming weeks. STN is one of the most innovative playout providers in the industry, offering a variety of playout options. The new and existing Oasys systems work alongside STN’s Miranda iTX systems in a complementary way, with both systems built around Isilon IQ X-Series scalable nodes. This enables STN to seamlessly scale the capacity from a few terabytes to multiple petabytes, and with data throughput over 45 gigabytes per second. “STN has used Oasys software since its very beginning, when IT-based playout was in its infancy,” said Tomaz Lovsin, STN’s managing director. “The fact that we still use it many years later – albeit with many more sophisticated features and functions – shows there are many benefits. “Today’s Oasys Player is supplied with a branding and graphics display management toolkit, and its handling of live events is astonishing,” he added. “Not only can the system literally replace a video console, it can also handle all the graphic challenges that may arise during a live transmission. Oasys is a very powerful playout system that is nevertheless logical and easy for our operators to work with.”
